Council Defers on Greenwood Application
Mono held a Statutory Public Meeting last night at the municipal office to discuss Greenwood Aggregate's proposed Violet Hill Gravel Pit. Presentations were made by various consultants followed by residents expressing their views on the proposal. In the days leading up to last night's meeting Council received a significant re-submission of reports from the applicant and many letters of objection to the proposal.
Council elected to defer a final decision on the application in order to review the newly submitted information and to allow people who were unable to attend to submit written comments; and to give time for the Town to review Greenwood's responses to concern's raised during the Peer Review. Council passed the following motion:
THAT Council deems both Applications, Zoning Bylaw Amendment (ZBA 2016-02) and Official Plan Amendment (OPA 2016-01), by S Greenwood Holdings Limited and 1682843 Ontario Limited in relation to Part of Lots 30, 31, and 32, Concession 4 EHS, to be premature, given the outstanding issues and concerns identified by the Town’s peer review team and the receipt of responding materials from the applicant and numerous public submissions including the submissions received at the public meeting held January 24, 2018 and any further submissions to be received.
Council will deliberate on the application at its February 13th meeting which will be held in council chambers at 7 p.m.
