February 27th Meeting

This week, Town Council begins at 5pm.

A public meeting will be held to discuss a proposed zoning amendment at 12334 Arbour Street.  The proponent would like to change the zoning to allow for construction of a semi-detached residential dwelling and establish site-specific yard and lot (i.e. building setbacks, lot coverage) requirements.  Each dwelling unit is proposed to have an attached single-car garage accessed from Arbour Street. The agenda can be found here.

At 6pm, Town Council will reconsider the 7th Concession Drain report.  The most recent report needs to be slightly revised because of a land sale and a request to install a new culvert.  The agenda can be found here.
