What is being proposed?

The Town is considering revisions to its existing Regulating Sewer Discharge By-Law 2013-37 to address the regulatory framework for high strength and industrial wastewater users.

Updating the By-Law and incorporating both sanitary and storm sewer discharge criteria, the By-Law, if passed, will allow the Town to take a proactive and fiscally responsible initiative to safeguard the Town’s infrastructure, public health, property and the environment, now and into the future. The proposed draft Regulating Sewer Discharge By-Law regulates all users: residential, industrial, commercial, and institutional and addresses extraneous flows from users discharging to the sewers.

Staff report CSPW.19.039 Regulating Sewer Discharge By-law 2013-37 Update provides additional information regarding the proposed changes.

Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Town of The Blue Mountains, at its regularly scheduled Council Meeting on November 13, 2019, will consider the adoption of a new Regulating Sewer Discharge By-Law and repeal the existing Regulating Sewer Discharge By-law 2013-37.

This Public Notice is being considered at the September 16, 2019 Committee of the Whole Meeting

The purpose of this application is to rezone the property from Residential (R3) to Residential Exception (R1-x), as a condition of the severance of two lots – one containing the Residential Dwelling, and a second lot containing the garage (to be demolished). The R1 category permits single detached dwellings and accessory uses. Note that these lands are an area still zoned under the Town of Thornbury Zoning By-law 10-77. The proposed Exception is to align the zoning category with provisions that match the new Comprehensive Zoning By-law 2018-65, not yet in effect for this property. The retained land will continue to be zoned Development (D), but is to be subject of a future plan of subdivision application and rezoning.

The property is also subject to severance application files B12-2019 and B13-2019, which were recently conditionally approved.

This Public Notice is being considered at the September 16, 2019 Committee of the Whole Meeting

The property owners would like to establish a primary residential use on the property, but retain the ability for limited commercial uses. The lands are currently zoned General Commercial Exception (C2-87-h). The Exception 87 allows for the commercial uses of the C2 zone, with the exception of a restaurant use, and does not permit a residential use. The Holding (-h) symbol requires a parking management plan prior to establishing a new commercial use. Note: the property was rezoned to the C2-87-h in 2017 from the Institutional (I) and Residential (R2) zones.

This application requests to change the zoning category from the General Commercial (C2-87) zone to the Bruce Street Marsh Street Corridor (BMC) zone, to be consistent with the adjacent properties. The proposed zoning would allow the conversion of the building to a 327 sq m residence, with an 81.4 sq metre retail store (or similar uses, in accordance with the BMC zone). The proposed zone would also have site-specific exceptions to recognize existing setbacks of the building on the site. No other development is proposed.
