THE PURPOSE of the Public Meeting is to obtain public comments and consider a proposed Amendment to the Town’s new Comprehensive Zoning By-law, being By-law 10-04, in accordance with Section 34 of the Planning Act.

 

THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to amend Section 5.7.2.1 of Zoning By-law 10-04 by inserting new provisions related to the replacement, enlargement and extension of dwellings that encroach into the required setback from the Optimal Summer Water Level.  The provisions would require that:

 

i)              the situation of non-compliance is not further increased;

ii)             the height of the dwelling is not increased if the dwelling is located within 10 metres of the Optimal Summer Water Level;

iii)            the width of the dwelling does not exceed a maximum width based upon the setback from the Optimal Summer Water Level; and,

iv)            the dwelling complies with all other provisions of the By-law.

 

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment applies to all Waterfront lands with existing residential uses within the Town of Gravenhurst, therefore a key map has not been provided.

 

ANY PERSON OR AGENCY may attend the Public Meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support or in opposition to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.

 

IF A PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Corporation of the Town of Gravenhurst before the By-law is passed; the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Gravenhurst to the Ontario Municipal Board.

 

IF A PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Corporation of the Town of Gravenhurst before the By-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

 

WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS AND/OR REQUESTS FOR NOTICE of the passage of the Zoning By-law should be directed to Nicholas Popovich, Manager of Development Services.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION respecting the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is available for review at the Municipal Office - Planning Department, during summer office hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 Fridays).  For further information, please contact Nicholas Popovich, Manager of Development Services.
