The purposeof the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to amend the Collingwood Zoning By-law to change the proposed zoning for the subject lands from Resort Commercial C3 and Resort Commercial Exception One C3-1 (under appeal) to Highway Commercial special exception zones implementing the proposed OP policies. 
 
The effect of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment is to permit a number of highway commercial uses including such uses as broadcasting, business office, convenience store, day care centre, dry cleaners, electronics and appliance store, furniture store, garden supply outlet, home centre, medical office, personal service shop, restaurant and video outlet.

DEPUTATIONS
  • Todco Development Plan of Subdivision
Mr. Bill Green of GSP Group Planning Consultants, representing the Todco Subdivision Development, accompanied by principle owner of Todco, Tom Drucker, addressed Council to request support in removing the proposed amendment which provides a lapsing provision of the Draft Approval to May 19, 2012.
 
Mr. Green expressed concern that they have been diligent in undertaking work and resubmitting modifications with the Town and County. Mr. Green expressed further concern, noting that the Town of Collingwood does not have the authority to include a provision to lapse the approval and feels that the County with proximity of this property to the landfill site has been a cause of significant delay.
