Notice of Complete Application and Public Meeting - Osborne Street
- June 03, 2024

TAKE NOTICE that the Council for The Corporation of the Municipality of Powassan has received a complete application under Sections 34 and 36 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P. 13 as amended, to inform the public of a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.

The public meeting is being held for the application described below to enable interested members of the public to understand and comment on a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.

File #: 2024-01
Date: Tuesday, June 4, 2024
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Municipality of Powassan – 252 Clark Street (Fire Station)

The purpose and effect of the proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment is to amend the Restricted Area (Zoning) By-Law No. 2003-38, as amended, for the lands described as Concession 13, Part Lot 15 (Himsworth), LT23897 (Civic Address: 146 Osborne Street, Powassan), in the Municipality of Powassan.

The application, if approved, would remove the Holding (-H) symbol from the subject lands. The Holding (-H) symbol was applied as part of a previous amendment to the Zoning By-law (By-law 2016-39) to rezone the subject lands Multiple Residential (RM). The Holding (-H) symbol shall be removed once Council is provided: i) A site plan agreement prepared by the Municipality and signed by the Owner; ii) Any security required by the site plan agreement; and, iii) Municipal costs incurred in the review and preparation of items a) and b) have been reimbursed to the Municipality.

On November 28th, 2022, Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022 was passed by the province and received Royal Assent. The Bill made extensive changes to several Acts and regulations. One of the changes has eliminated the need for site plan agreements for buildings on a property containing no more than ten residential units. In the case of the subject property, a building containing six residential units is proposed, and a site plan agreement cannot be approved to lift the Holding (-H) symbol. Building permits cannot be issued with the Hold in place.

A key map showing the land to which the proposed amendment applies is provided with this notice. The purpose of this meeting is to ensure that sufficient information is made available to enable the public to generally understand the applicant’s proposed Zoning By-law Amendment. Any person who participates in the meeting shall be afforded an opportunity to make representations in respect of the application. A conceptual site plan is available for review at the Municipal Office.

If a person or public body does not make written submissions to the Municipality of Powassan before the proposed Bylaw is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Municipality of Powassan to the Ontario Land Tribunal.

If a person or public body does not make written submissions to the Municipality of Powassan before the proposed Bylaw is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Council for the Corporation of the Municipality of Powassan in respect to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment, you must submit a written request (with forwarding addresses) to the Clerk of the Municipality of Powassan at P.O. Box 250, 250 Clark Street, Powassan, Ontario, P0H 1Z0.
