February 11th Meeting

This week, City Council begins at 5pm with a public meeting regarding a proposed development at Lesperance Road and County Road 42.
The meeting is to receive comments on the revised Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw amendment applications for the 0.66 hectare (1.63 acre) parcel of land located on the northeast corner of the County Road 42 and Lesperance Road intersection. The subject property is currently designated “Neighbourhood Commercial” in the Sandwich South Official Plan. The revised Official Plan amendment application proposes to redesignate the subject property to a “Medium Density Residential” designation with a site-specific policy that would allow for the construction of a residential development consisting of four six-unit, three-storey multi-unit dwellings, for a total of 24 dwelling units. The purpose of the associated Zoning By-law amendment was to change the zoning pertaining to the subject property from “General Commercial Zone (C1)” to a site-specific “Residential Zone 2 (R2)” to permit the proposed residential uses and establish site-specific zone provisions, such as minimum yard depths and height.

This second public meeting is to review the revised proposal and to summarize how issues identified at the first public meeting are proposed to be addressed.

At 6pm the first Court of Revision begins.  The meeting is to hear from any affected owner who wishes to appeal his/her assessment or any part thereof as set out in the Hurley Relief Branch Drain and Upper Part of Hurley Relief Drain Drainage Report, prepared by Mr. Gerard Rood P.
