Proposed Official Plan Amendment (Ontario Gates Village)
 
Mark Bryan, Community Planner for the Town of Collingwood reviewed the details of the application and the comments received to date.
 
The proposed Official Plan Amendment (Town File No. D090410) pertains to a parcel of land located on the south side of Ontario Street and East of St. Paul Street.  The subject property is approximately 0.54 ha (1.33 ac) in lot area and is legally described as Part of Lot 43, Concession 8 Registered Plan 51R26694, designated as Parts 1 and 3 and Part of Lot 43, Concession 8 Registered Plan 51R 29853 designated as Part 2, Town of Collingwood, (formerly Township of Nottawasaga) County of Simcoe.  This particular development proposal is being called the Ontario Gates Village.
 
The purposeof the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to redesignate the subject property from a Low Density Residential land use designation to a Medium Density Residential land use designation.
 
The effectof the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to permit the development of the subject lands for two rental or condominium 3 storey apartment buildings with 12 dwelling units each, a parking area, open space and connectivity with the Collingwood Trail system.
 
Shelley Wells, Planning Consultant on behalf of the Application, further reviewed the merits of the application and requested Council’s favourable consideration.
 
Mayor Carrier called for the first time for comments from the public.
 
Noel Bates, 294 Minnesota Street, and property owner of lots within the area, expressed concern with the proposed intensification and particularly the incompatibility with the existing low density single family dwellings in the neighbourhood. 
 
Annette Snowden, 153 Ontario Street, resident adjacent to the proposed development also expressed concerns with the intensification and the impact on traffic flow, proximity to the trail, aesthetics of the tower and compatibility with the neighbourhood.
 
Vance White, 240 Minnesota Street, expressed concern with the relocation of the hydro lines and at whose expense.  Mr. White further questioned whether it was the developer’s intent to obtain a higher density just to flip and resell the property as it would be more valuable.
 
Council inquired to the location and impact of the tower, whether the proposed density supports growth intensification and the Provincial Policy Statement, future elevations and costs associated with the relocation of utility poles.
 
Mayor Carrier called for the second and third time for comments from the public.
Public session closed.
 
7.2       Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment (Pretty River Estates)
 
Trevor Houghton, Senior Planner for the Town of Collingwood reviewed the details of the application and the comments received to date.
 
This submission is deemed to be a complete application pursuant to Section 34(10.4) of the Planning Act, R.S.O 1990, c. P. 13, as amended.  The subject lands affected by this application are various lots located within the Pretty River Estates subdivision (Registered Plan No. 51M-945).
 
The purpose and effect of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to amend the Collingwood Zoning By-law to re-zone the subject lands from the Residential Third Density Exception Twelve (R3-12) zone and Residential Third Density Exception Thirteen (R3-13) zone to Residential Second Density Exception (R2-Exception) zones.
 
The proposed R2-Exception zones would limit permitted uses to single detached and semi-detached dwellings; in accordance with the registered plan of subdivision recognize existing lot frontages and lot areas, modify setbacks for exterior side yards and create driveway setbacks for semi-detached dwellings.  The need for the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is required as a correction to the new Collingwood Zoning By-law.
 
Mayor Carrier called for the first, second and third time for comments from the public.No one from the public provided any comment with respect to the above application.
