My company is a small landlord and developer located in St. Jacobs Ontario. Many of our buildings are small commercial buildings in the historic downtown core of St. Jacobs.
I strongly support the proposed amendment to the RSC regulation to low-rise commercial buildings from the RSC requirement when converting to residential use. We have found this requirement to be extremely onerous in recent years, as we have attempted to convert the second floor of commercial retail buildings to residential uses. The cost of obtaining an RSC is unrealistic when we are only creating one or two apartments in a building.
