2.    PUBLIC MEETING

A public meeting was held regarding a proposed new Comprehensive Zoning By-law for the Township of Carling. The following ratepayers addressed Council;

Mr. John Mowat raised concerns over Council’s change of position on structures such as saunas and gazebo’s being located on the Shore Road Allowance and docks. It is Mr. Mowat’s position that Council is over regulating these items as they are not a problem.
 
Mr. John Jacklyn supported Mr. Mowat and argued that the rationale for having a cottage is to allow children to experience the north while having fun and that this proposed change in the by-law is an overreaction to one complaint.

Mr. Paul Watson spoke and supported the position of the two previous speakers.

Ms. Margaret Lloyd raised concern over two trailers that have been on her property for at least ten-years and was concerned that she would have to have them removed. As well Ms. Lloyd raised concern over the use by six cottagers who cross her property to get road access to their properties and the absence of a registered easement.

Ms. Stella Weir raised concerns over the appropriate proposed expanded commercial uses to the various commercial zones.

Council indicated that Doug Vock the CBO would contact Ms. Lloyd to review the matter regarding the two trailers, as for the access issue she would need to speak to her lawyer and seek advice.

Council informed Ms. Weir that Council was reducing the proposed changes to the uses in commercial zones as they felt that some of the proposed uses should require greater public input and thus should go through more stringent planning processes.

The Public Meeting was closed at 7:36 p.m.
