Public Meeting regarding the Draft Municipal Licensing By-law and the Draft Municipal Administrative Penalties By-law that have been proposed.

Monday, December 16, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Town Hall, Council Chambers
32 Mill Street, Thornbury, ON N0H 2P0

What is being proposed?

The Draft Municipal Licensing By law that is being proposed will allow the Town to not only provide a clear and transparent By-law for Short Term Rental Properties, but also provide the ability to increase the range of License types if the Town wishes to create additional Licenses in the future. The proposed by-law will require the rescinding of the existing Short-Term Accommodation By-law 2004-45 in its entirety.

Staff has also proposed a By-law to potentially allow for a Comprehensive System of Administrative Monetary Penalties to provide the ability for the Town to deal with Offences that contravene select Municipal By-laws in a Municipal Tribunal setting as opposed to having these infractions tried in Provincial Offences Court.

The Draft Municipal Licensing By-law and the Draft Municipal Administrative Penalties By-law were the subject of Staff Report FAF.19.202.

When will a decision be made?

It is important to note that a decision on the Draft Municipal Licensing By-law and the Draft Municipal Administrative Penalties By-law has NOT been made at this point and will NOT be made at this Public Meeting.

After reviewing the Draft By-laws and comments from the public, Staff will bring its recommendations to Council at a future Council Meeting.

How can I make my views known about this proposal?

Comments at the Public Meeting aid the Town and Council in their decision making process, so be sure to have your say!

Any person or agency may attend the Public Meeting and/or make verbal or written comments regarding the Draft Municipal Licensing By-law and/or the Draft Municipal Administrative Penalties By-law.

How do I submit my comments?

If you would like to submit comments in writing or would like to be notified of a decision on this proposal, submit your written comments or request during regular office hours (Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) to Corrina Giles, Town Clerk at:

Town Hall, 32 Mill Street, Thornbury, ON

Telephone: 519-599-3131 ext. 232

Comments can also be faxed to Corrina Giles at 519-599-7723, or emailed to townclerk@thebluemountains.ca

Please note that any submitted comments become part of the public record, including names and addresses. Written comments are due by December 13, 2019 so that they may be read at the meeting for the benefit of everyone in attendance.

Applications for Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments

The purpose of these applications is to consider a development proposal for a proposed waterski wakeboard cable park and associated buildings and structures.  The proposed facility is comprised of three separate cable systems which would tow participants along a series of man-made, isolated ponds.  Other amenities are proposed on the site including a pro shop, passive recreational uses, surface and overflow parking areas, and a commercial plaza and overnight accommodations as part of a future phase of development. 

The submitted Official Plan Amendment application has the purpose of amending existing site-specific land use permissions relating to the former Cedar Run Horse Park in order to provide for the proposed Water Ski Wakeboard Cable Park and accessory buildings/uses as permitted uses.  The amendment does not propose to change the Urban Employment Area or the Hazard designations currently applied to the property.

The submitted Zoning By-law Amendment application has the purpose of adding a "Water Ski Wakeboard Cable Park" as a permitted use to the existing REC3-92-h10 zone category.  The proposed amendment will also remove a "Horse Park" as a permitted use and will include implementing provisions.

This Public Notice is being considered at the Committee of the Whole meeting on October 28, 2019 at 5:00pm

The purpose of this application is to consider a request to increase the maximum permitted lot coverage on the subject lands from 30% to 35%.  Lot coverage means the percentage of the lot area covered by all buildings and structures (excluding pools and decks).  The proposed increase in coverage is requested as the homes being designed for these lots have the option to also include a covered porch (loggia).  The proposed increase of 5% lot coverage would only apply to the covered porch portion.

The effect of this application is to consider a new site specific exception as follows: a covered porch may exceed the maximum permitted lot coverage up to 35% of the lot area.

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.
