Council authorized public notification for the proposed Concept Plan at the June 17 meeting. The public notice was then posted at City Hall and on the City webpage, advertised in the local newspaper for three consecutive weeks, and sent by direct mail out to property owners within 75 metres (250 feet) of the subject lands.

As of the date of this report, no comments have been received. Council may still receive written or verbal submissions as part of the Public Hearing, noted a report circulated to Council.

The proposed Concept Plan was reviewed by the Planning & Infrastructure Commission at their June 26, 2019 meeting. The Commission carried a resolution recommending that Council adopt the Concept Plan, added Michael Eger, Director of Planning, Building & Development, with the City.

“Administration is in favour of the Concept Plan as it successfully considers all relevant factors in laying out a framework for future development of the lands. While adoption of the Plan is not necessary for Cowessess to carry out development of Phase I, it will provide them, the City, and the neighbouring property owners with the clarity and direction needed for future phases to occur,” said Eger.
