Executive Committee Updates
Here’s what the VCA Executive has been working on behalf of the Village residents
Randwood Resort Application
Meeting held at NOTL Community Centre, Jan 25, attended by Mark Brown, VCA President
To say that the Open House for this application was well attended would be an understatement. More than 600 residents across NOTL attended, with roughly 40 speakers raising specific, valid concerns about the application to amend the current zoning. The current zoning permits a hotel use on the property, however what is being proposed is different from what has already been approved. The initial approval, received a number of years ago, involved considerable public input and discussion before a compromise was reached that was approved.
The Town has scheduled a Municipal Heritage Committee meeting on February 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Community Centre as the next step in the process. Doors open at 6:15 PM, and the meeting will be live streamed into the lounge area beside Sweets and Swirls Cafe. This meeting will address the heritage resources report submitted by the applicant.
The planning process is following what is mandated by the Planning Act, so there are specific time frames that are being followed. Based on public input, the application may be amended, or not. Continued participation by the public is essential to either effect change, or convince Council to not approve this application as submitted.
