Council carried first reading and authorized public notification for the proposed bylaw at the June 17, 2019 meeting

The proposed Bylaw was posted at City Hall and on the City webpage, and advertised in the local newspaper for three consecutive weeks. As of the date of this report, no inquiries or comments have been received. Council may still receive written or verbal submissions as part of the Public Hearing, explained Michael Eger, Director of Planning, Building & Development, with the City at the meeting Monday.

“The proposed closure was reviewed by the Planning & Infrastructure Commission at their June 26, 2019 meeting. The Commission carried a resolution recommending that Council consider approval of the proposed closure,” he said.

The proposed Bylaw follows directive from a previous Council resolution, and there has not been any new information that would preclude the closure from proceeding at this time. Upon receiving final approval, Administration will complete subdivision, title transfer and easement registration for the subject lands.
