NOTICE OF PASSAGE OF BY-LAW 2017-024 TO AMEND ZONING BY-LAW 2014-018

You were advised by way of notice sent on June 30th, 2016, (and advertised in the Gillies Municipal News – July 2016 and August 2016 newsletter editions) of a Public Information Session of the Gillies Municipal Council, held on August 8th, 2016.

The purpose of the meeting was to consider the Re-Zoning Application brought forward by Markus Hofmann, property owner. The proposed Re-Zoning Application would apply to the recently severed southern portions of the property municipally known as 56 Rose Valley Road and legally described as: Con 2 N 1/2 Lot & Pt S 1/2 lot 2 & N 1/2 Lot 3, on Hwy 608. The Re-Zoning Application sought to change the zoning of the subject property from its current zone “Commercial” to the “Rural Residential” Zone. The effect of this change was to allow the severed properties to be used as residential building lots.  There being no opposition to the re-zoning application, it was recommended the application be approved once the severance was finalized. The recommendation was considered at the regular Municipal Council meeting held on August 8th 2016, and approved. Since that date, the severances were finalized by the Lakehead Rural Planning Board.

TAKE NOTICE that the Council for The Corporation of the Township of Gillies passed By-law 2017-024 at its regular meeting held on July 10th 2017.

NOW THEREFORE THE COUNCIL OF THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF GILLIES ENACTS AS FOLLOWS:

  1. That Schedule "A" to By-law  #2014-018 is hereby amended to place two portions of the South Half of Lot 2, Concession 2, in The Township of Gillies, more particularly described as Part 1 and Part 2 on the plan of survey Plan 55R-14212 registered in the office of Land Titles Division for Thunder Bay within the Rural Residential (RU) Zone.

  1. This By-law shall come into force and effect on the date of passing in accordance with Section 34 of the Ontario Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P. 13, 1996 Edition, as amended.

More detail can be obtained through review of the enclosed by-law and/or discussion with the Municipality’s Clerk, who can be contacted using the contact information on the letterhead on which this notice is printed.

TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of this Amending Zoning By-law by filing with the Clerk of the Municipality not later than the 31st day of July 2017 a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the by-law and the reasons for the objection.

THIS NOTICE is sent to various public authorities and agencies, and to the property owners surrounding any sites that were individually re-zoned (as required by Ontario Regulation 545/06, as amended), for their information. It will also be advertised in the Gillies Municipal News August Edition, and posted on the Municipality’s website at www.gilliestownship.com.
