NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
CONCERNING CONSENT APPLICATIONS AND
A PROPOSED ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT

PART OF LOT 8, CONCESSION V, MERRIT TWP;
QUEENSWAY, TOWN OF ESPANOLA

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Espanola will hold a public meeting on the 27th day of February, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Office, 100 Tudhope Street, Espanola.  The purpose of this public meeting is to consider consent applications B-01/17 to B-07/17 and a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment under Sections 53 and 34 of the Planning Act for the property located on part of Lot 8, Concession V, Merritt Twp.; Queensway; Town of Espanola.

The effect of the consent applications is to sever seven (7) new lots to accommodate a total of 27 residential garden home rowhouse units, configured as one (1) three-unit rowhouse and six (6) four-unit rowhouses. The proposed lots have between 40 m and 58 m frontage on a new proposed municipal road; and between 1,318 sqm and 2,021 sqm in area. The proposed retained lot is 149,851 sqm.

An amendment to the Zoning By-law will be necessary to rezone the severed lands from the Residential First Density holding (R1-h) Zone to the Residential Third Density Special Exception Five holding (R3-5-h) Zone in order to permit the garden home rowhouse dwelling units and provide exceptions for the proposed driveway configurations. The holding zone will still be in place until municipal services are provided.

ANY PERSON may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of, or in opposition to, the applications.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Espanola before it gives or refuses to give a provisional consent and/or the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Town of Espanola 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 Town of Espanola 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.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Town of Espanola in respect of the proposed consents and/or zoning by-law amendment, you must make a written request to the Town of Espanola.

A Key Map showing the location of the affected property to which the proposed By-law Amendment applies is attached to this Notice.
