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 Zoning By-law Amendment, Official Plan Amendment or Draft Plan of Subdivision or Condominium.
The Deputy Clerk advised that the purpose of the public meeting is to hear from anyone who has an interest in the applications for Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and Draft Plan of Subdivision.
The purpose and effect of this Zoning By-law amendment, Official Plan Amendment and Draft Plan of Subdivision is to allow for the redevelopment of the former golf course lands into a residential subdivision. The draft plan subdivision includes a mix of single detached dwellings, town house units, parkland, trails and use of existing stormwater management ponds.
She further advised that the Committee of the Whole would not make a decision regarding the proposed application 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 this matter, 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 application.
The Deputy Clerk thanked residents for their participation and interest in the meeting.
