Council Denies Greenwood Applications

In a unanimous vote, Mono Council turned down the Applications for Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw Amendments made by Greenwood Aggregates. The applications sought to permit the development and licensing of a sand and gravel operation at Part Lots 30, 31 and 32 Concession 4 EHS. Council members provided many reasons for their rejection of the proposal, including, but not limited to, lack of information for Third Line road re-construction, lack of a development permit from the Niagara Escarpment Commission, deficiencies in the technical reports provided, and that an aggregate operation would not be compatible with the surrounding community and natural heritage features.

Resolution #3-4-2018
Moved by McGhee - Seconded by Manktelow

WHEREAS Council has received comments from the general public, public agencies, and their Peer Review Team;

AND WHEREAS these Comments and reports continue to detail significant issues and concerns with the Applications and supporting documentation;

AND WHEREAS the Niagara Escarpment Commission has confirmed a development permit is required for the proposal, in accordance with the Niagara Escarpment Planning and Development Act and no application has been submitted;

AND WHEREAS Council chooses to make a decision on the Official Plan Amendment within the 180 days as set out in the Planning Act;

AND WHEREAS, based on the foregoing, Council determines the Applications do not represent good planning and are not appropriate in this area of the community;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council deny the Applications for Zoning Bylaw Amendment (ZBA 2016-02) and Official Plan Amendment (OPA 2016-01), submitted by S. Greenwood Holdings Limited and 1682843 Ontario Limited in relation to Part of Lots 30, 31 and 32, Concession 4 EHS.

Recorded Vote
Nix: yes; Martin: yes; Manktelow: yes, McGhee yes, Ryan: yes.

Noise Bylaw Exemption for 'Celebrate Your Awesome' at Island Lake

Council considered a request for an exemption to the noise bylaw for a community event planned for Island Lake this summer. As well as the exemption, the group asked that the normal fee to process an exemption be waived.

The group asked for an exemption to the Town's noise bylaw that prohibits amplified music after 5 p.m. for the 'Celebrate Your Awesome' event that is to take place at the new amphitheatre at Island Lake Conservation Area on June 23rd. Resident Marc Darby spoke in opposition to the exemption, stating he feels amplified music runs contrary to Credit Valley Conservation's mandate of promoting nature conservation.

As the amphitheatre is relatively new, having been erected last summer, Council stated they would rather see CVC take responsibility for dealing with these requests as opposed to each event organizer coming to Council seeking an exemption. Council directed staff to work with CVC to develop guidelines for Council's review.

Fill Bylaw Exemption for Private Landowner

Randolph Froude appeared as a delegation before Council requesting relief from the requirements of the Town’s Fill Bylaw. Council indicated that they have not received enough information regarding the request and advised Mr. Froude to prepare more detailed engineering drawings for the works to be completed, before they would consider his proposal.
