The Clerk welcomed the public to the Committee of the Whole meeting. She advised that the Planning Act requires the Town to hold at least one public meeting on any proposed Official Plan Amendment or Zoning By-law Amendment.
The Clerk advised that the purpose of the public meeting is to hear from anyone who has an interest in the Application for a Zoning By-law Amendment related to lands located at 18095 – 18099 Leslie Street.
She advised that the purpose and effect of this application is to rezone the subject lands from the existing Single Detached Residential 30 Meter Zone (R1-B) zone to a Service Commercial Exception Zone (CS-X) zone to permit a motor vehicle service shop and motor vehicle storage.
She further advised that the Committee of the Whole would not be making a decision regarding the proposed application, but will refer all written and verbal comments to Planning Staff to consider and return with a report to a future Committee of the Whole or Council meeting.
The Clerk advised that if anyone present wished to be notified of any subsequent meetings regarding this matter, they should complete the further request form using the iPad set up for this purpose.
The Clerk noted that in accordance with the Planning Act, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal may dismiss an appeal to the Tribunal, without holding a hearing, if the appellant failed to make either oral submissions at the public meeting or provide written submissions to Council prior to adoption of the application.
The Clerk thanked residents for their participation and interest in the meeting.
