Shared Tower Corporation is proposing to construct a new telecommunication tower on the subject lands. The proposed tower is planned to be 65m in height and is proposed to be a self-support lattice-style tower. A pre-fabricated galvanized steel equipment cabinet is also proposed to be located at the base of the Tower.
Please note that the establishment of new telecommunication facilities is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal Government. Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada is the approval authority for telecommunication towers and requires all proponents of new facilities to consult local planning authorities to ensure local protocols and surroundings are considered during the mandated site selection process. The Town of The Blue Mountains Municipal Telecommunication Protocol requires public consultation for any proposal for new telecommunication facilities.
The Town is recommending a number of revisions to the powers and duties that have been delegated to Town staff by Council as outlined in Policy POL.COR.07.04. These delegated authorities allow Town staff to perform specific duties and authorize specific activities to take place within the Town without requiring Council approval of each action.
The Town is also recommending the addition of a delegated authority for the Director of Legal Services to approve requests for relief from the Town’s Noise By-law.
A list of the proposed revisions to the Town’s current delegation of powers and duties is available as an attachment to Staff Report FAF.20.188 Revisions to Council Delegation of Powers and Duties Follow Up.
