Updated: Jan 6

The first meeting of this new committee! Beginning with a Public Meeting on an application for 301 McKay Road West, plus Allandale Neighbourhood Association's concerns with Bill 23, and a number of recommendations from Heritage Barrie.

🗣👥 Public Meeting

🏘️🏫 Zoning Bylaw Amendment - 301 McKay Road West (Ward 7)

  • Public Meeting Notice:

  • Presentation:

  • Staff Memo:

  • Application for a Zoning Bylaw amendment

  • Proposal to facilitate the creation of 204 single detached residential dwelling units, 49 townhouse units, a recreation centre, and an elementary school, in the Salem Secondary Planning Area

  • Application submitted by KLM Planning Partners Inc. on behalf of Watersand Construction Limited

  • Seeking to amend the zoning from Agricultural General (AG) to Neighbourhood Residential (R5), Environmental Protection (EP), Educational Institution Special Provision (I-E, SP-XX) and Neighbourhood Mixed Use (MNU) – application being reviewed concurrently with an application for a Draft Plan of Subdivision

  • Site-Specific Provisions:

    • Permit the future development of a public elementary school with a special provision to permit uses in accordance with the R5 Zone provisions, should the school board not acquire the elementary school block (has been applied consistently across Hewitt's & Salem Secondary Plan Areas, to allow residential use if school board doesn't purchase allocated site)

    • For elementary school, reduce minimum landscaped open space of 35% (instead of 41%), to allow for demand for parking, kiss & ride drop off lanes, bus loading areas, portable pads, and an asphalt play area without the requirement for a future zoning bylaw amendment application (Site Plan Control application would be required prior to development of elementary school site)
