NOTICE OF A COMPLETE APPLICATION AND A PUBLIC MEETING
FOR A ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that The Corporation of the Township of Nipissing has received an application to amend Zoning By-law 2012-12. The application was deemed complete on July 9, 2019. The application affects the subject lands locally known as 2971 Highway 654 West; and is legally described as Part of Part of Lot 1 on Reference Plan 42R13617, Township of Nipissing, District of Parry Sound. The subject lands are currently developed with a detached dwelling, and were subject to a recent consent approval from the North Almaguin Planning Board. The subject lands are shown on the attached Key Map.

The purpose of the application is to rezone a portion of the subject property from the Rural (RU) Zone to the Environmental Protection (EP) Zone.

The application submission included an Environmental Impact Study that provides recommendations for areas on the subject lands to be located within the EP Zone. The proposed application implements the recommendations of the Environmental Impact Study to ensure the applicable natural heritage features are protected long term.

AND PURSUANT to Section 34 (10) of the Planning Act, the application file is available for review at the Municipal Office. Please contact the CAO-Clerk to arrange to review this file.
