    ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT C512-2015
    Applicants:  Elvin & Patricia Austin
    Agent: Greg Corbett, Planscape Inc.
    Property Location:  13 Mill Rd.

Mayor Konoval called the public meeting to order and read out the purpose and the effect of the by-law as set out below.

THE PURPOSE of the proposed zoning by-law is to rezone Lot 37, Plan 42M-556 at the terminus of Mill Road from the Rural (RU) Zone to Special Provision Zonings.

THE EFFECT of the proposed special provision zonings is to recognize a parcel of land that gives the owners legal access through the subject land to the Township Road.  There will be no new development resulting from the lot creation or the rezoning.

The rezoning is necessary to recognize the reduced standards for both the severed and retained lands.  The lands that are the subject of this rezoning are subject to a consent before the Parry Sound Area Planning Board File No. B6/2015(C).

The Deputy Clerk advised Council that the notice requirements of the Planning Act had been met and that no correspondence was received in the Municipal office with respect to the proposed rezoning.

The Mayor asked if there was anyone present who wished to address council with respect to the proposed by-law.

Greg Corbett, Planner for the applicants was in attendance and advised Council that he was available for any questions, as was the applicants Solicitor, Paul Peterson.

Mayor Konoval declared this portion of the public meeting closed.
