REVISED - NOTICE OF A HEARING


Dear Sir or Madam:

This is to advise that on Friday, July 21, 2017 at 11:00 a.m., a public hearing will be held in the Township of The Archipelago’s Council Chamber, 9 James Street, Parry Sound, Ontario pursuant to Section 45(6) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13 as amended. At that time the following application for a minor variance shall be heard by the Committee of Adjustment for the Township of The Archipelago.

OWNER                  YANKANUCK CLUB                                                   

APPLICATION:        A09-17

PROPERTY           Island B-203, being Parcel 419 PSSS, in front of the geographic Township of Conger

CIVIC ADDRESS:   1 B203 Island, Archipelago

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The owners are seeking relief from Section 15.1.2 d) of the Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, as amended, which stipulates that the Minimum Front Yard Setback is 7.5 metres. The owners are proposing to erect a storage building located 1.5 metres (5 feet) over the Crown lake bed.

The purpose of the proposed variance is to reduce the required front yard by 9.1 metres (30 feet), due to the proposed location of the building over the water. The effect of the proposed variance would be the construction of a 69.7 square metre (750 square feet) storage building, being approximately 1.5 metres (5 feet) beyond the highwater mark.

The applicant has stated that they had to demolish the damaged boathouse that was located in front of where they wish to erect the storage building. At this time, they wish to build a dryland storage building and, in order to preserve trees and to keep the built form low due to the sloping terrain, they are requesting a variance.

View key map and sketch of the proposal. 

This letter is for your information only. Persons receiving this notice are under no obligation to attend the Hearing, unless they so desire. Signed written submissions will be accepted by the Secretary‑Treasurer of the Committee of Adjustment prior to or during the Hearing. Such written submissions will be available for inspection at the Hearing by any interested person. Persons not attending will not be entitled to further notice in this matter, except as otherwise provided in the Planning Act.

Additional information relating to the application is available from Planning Department staff at the above noted address during normal office hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). The Committee of Adjustment agenda, containing a copy of the Planner’s report and other relevant information, will be posted on the Township’s website (www.thearchipelago.on.ca) the week of the Hearing.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Committee of Adjustment in respect of this application, you must submit a written request to the Committee of Adjustment. This will also entitle you to be advised of a possible Ontario Municipal Board Hearing, if required.

Dated this 11th day of July, 2017.
