2.    BELL MOBILITY PROPOSED DILLON SITE

Bell Canada representatives Karen Balbaa and Mike Powell gave a presentation on the proposed tower in the Dillon area. The new tower is proposed to be their monopine design which will blend in with the surroundings much more than the traditional tower style.

Council asked that the circulation be expanded beyond the legislated three times the height of the tower range, and to more reflect that of planning circulation requirements of the Township. Council also asked questions about the future maintenance of this structure well into the future. Bell Canada representatives indicated they have a comprehensive maintenance program that not only looks after the structure but the actual pine branches. Council also asked about the ability of other providers being able to co-locate on the tower and this was not an issue to Bell.


3.    RAY LONG – BAYVIEW ASSOCIATION DOCKS

Mr. Ray Long gave a presentation to Council and an overview of all of the blocks and the existing dock structures and those it would propose for each area. The proposed potential new docks would double in the presented plan from approximately 20 to 40 docks. Mr. Long indicated that on each current and future dock have and would be used by two back lot property owners in the Bayview Subdivision.

Doug Vock the Chief Building Official gave Council several options to look at from site specific zoning of each area to either an encroachment agreement or license of occupation, to the removal of the structures.

Mr. Long stated that the blocks are open to all residents of the subdivision whether they are a member or not of the Association and would continue to be in the future.

Council directed staff to review with the Township Planner and Lawyer the various options and report back to Council with their recommendations. The cost of implementing the new control which ever method is chosen is to be covered by the Association.

Harold Themer spoke to Council regarding a property he owns that is across from the Township property that is being considered for a commercial loading area. Mr. Themer is asking for the Township to allow a dock to be installed for this property if such a facility is built.
