The Deputy 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 Deputy Clerk advised that the purpose of the public meeting is to hear from anyone who has an interest in the Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment located on 247 and 251 Kathryn Crescent.
The purpose and effect of this amendment is to facilitate the division of these 2 lots into 3 separate building lots for single detached dwellings.
She further advised that the Committee of the Whole would not make a decision regarding the proposed applications at the public meeting, 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 Deputy Clerk advised that if anyone present wished to be notified of any subsequent meetings regarding these matters, they may complete the further request form.
The Deputy 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 applications.
The Deputy Clerk thanked residents for their participation and interest in the meeting.
