I am against the new bylaw proposal.

The current bylaw has all the teeth necessary to deal with any issues. Equal consideration of neighbours is important including those who have issues with smoke/firepits. Perhaps only a manufactured firepit would limit the size and common sense, courtesy should prevail.

It is our right to have safe fires in our own backyards. Just because some ppl are irresponsible and careless should not affect everyone else who actually abide by the rules. Some ppl love to complain!! Fires are therapeutic for anxiety

N2H 2E9 I am against the new bylaw proposal. This is just another cash grab. We should be able to do whatever we want in our own backyards. After all don't we pay property tax???

I am against this and don't even start with the air quality issue unless you are prepared to ban lawn mowers , single people in vehicles and smoking city buses

Please do not ban firepits. They are fun and relaxing and good for families who cannot get out of town to enjoy campfires.

Strongly against new bylaw!!

The current bye law is fine. As a firefighter most responses are due to noise or a few people burning when and what they shouldn't be. Neighbour disputes are normally the real issue. Smoke from ordinary combustibles on a non windy or smog day dissipate.

22 Doonbrook place Kitchener . Lots of good info and assistance if required. Good luck! How about a 1 time urban burn permit $20. if you violate take it away.

I can understand issues with postage stamp properties and out of control fires and burning of noxious substances to be concerning, however any issues with responsible adults having a backyard fire within bilaw restrictions should be allowed to continue.

6 fires at $10 each! Less than 1 fire per weekend and what does the $10 fee support? The permit would be wasted for us if the wind takes the smoke to a neighbour's house, we check by lighting paper 1st. "BAN the BAN"
1472Sue Benoit
Yes we are responsible people!
1473Dale Paff
N2E2X1 As the fireman early stated,most complaints are due to spiteful neighbors! I agree! Don't let a minority ruin some great family enjoyment! stated before, leave the by-law the original way it was. Sounds like the fee is a cash grab to me!

N2H-3N6 I would be willing to bet for a lot of these people this isn't the first issue they have had with their neigbhours and it will not be the last. Charge the speeder, don't ban driving.
1486Pam Geldart
Back yard fires are enjoyable for those of us who don't go camping or to the cottage on the weekend. It is a nice way to spend time with family and friends. As long as you are not inconsiderate I don't see any problem with back yard fires.
1487Lisa Paff
N2E 2X1, I don't agree with the new proposed bylaw. We pay taxes and should be able to have fires,why pay more to enjoy our property!
I don't agree with pay more for enjoying our property, if your doing fire pits what's next fire places in homes?

This is nothing more than a money grab by our city. You aren't stopping the people from careless burning, your only making us all pay a fee for it. Nowhere in the amendment did I see a spark retardant cover must be used. The careless people are the ones ha

Cash grab that is all this is. City of Kitchener why waste time having to write these permits out when you did not have to do this before. Keep things the way they are so that families are able to spend time within the comforts of their own homes/backyards.

N2H 3M2 - this is terrible, the people that were on the news and in the record live behind my house. GO INSIDE OR CLOSE YOUR DAMN WINDOWS

money grab

I live in the same district as my son and although I do not do pit fires I agree with the petition...just greed on the part of the city...AW
1497Ian Graham
Zehr... It's time for you to move on. After years of dealing with your crap when you supported Manulife jack hammering/construction at all hours in our neighborhood and the coal tar fiasco, this fire pit law has to be the ultimate low. And $10?!?! WTF!!!!

It would be nice to set rules that reflect that the vast majority that follows them and not to let the few bad apples spoil it for everyone else.
Fine those that break the existing bylaw. The $10 per fire results in very expensive smores!

Thanks
