Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes 2011 revisions to the comprehensive zoning bylaw in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie, Quebec, to include four regulatory measures aimed at tackling the urban heat island (UHI) effect. For example, owners must install a green roof or highly reflective roof on new or renovated buildings and large parking lots must include landscaped ground. The new bylaw and permit system presents an opportunity to educate the public and developers about the impacts of UHIs.
