Permanent Closure of Street Right-of-Way Adjacent to 230 Broadway Street East received unanimous second and third reading passage at the regular meeting of Yorkton Council Monday.
Council carried 1st 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.
“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,” added Eger.
“The proposed Bylaw allows the City to finalize the sale of the unused right-of-way to the owner of 230 Broadway Street East, where the Mark’s development is occurring and saves from expensive land acquisition costs that would have been due to the Province.
“As such, Administration is in favour of proceeding with the proposed Bylaw. Upon receiving final approval, Administration will complete subdivision and title transfer for the subject lands.”
