Planning Committee โ€“ Tuesday, January 18, 2022, 7pm

Updated: Jan 6

A presentation giving an update on Barrie's New Official Plan, and a deferred zoning bylaw amendment application for 407-419 Mapleview Dr. W.

๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒ† Barrie's New Official Plan Update โ€“ "One City, One Vision, One Plan"

๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒ† Zoning Bylaw Amendment โ€“ 407, 411, 413, 417 & 419 Mapleview Drive West (Ward 7)

  • Deferred from December 7, for further consideration

  • Staff Report:

  • Correspondence re: Site Plan Revisions:

  • Rezone from Residential Single Detached Dwelling First Density (R1) to Residential Multiple Dwelling Second Density with Special Provisions (RM2 SP-XXX)

  • Councillor Harvey stated that he had hoped that the deferral would give time for the applicant to talk with the residents and their hired planner, and have a good discussion around the design. Unfortunately, the applicant would not budge on the issues of height or density, so the discussions had gotten nowhere. Councillor Harvey had also reached out to the applicant, but was unable to get any further.

  • Councillor Harvey gave a visual presentation of some of the issues and concerns that he and the neighbourhood residents still have.

  • Instead of asking Council to vote down the application, Councillor Harvey had come up with a number of amendments, to allow the project to go forward, but in a way that was more acceptable to the neighbouring community.

  • Deputy Mayor Ward noted that approving the amendments tonight wouldn't give Council or staff time to investigate what effect or consequence these amendments might have. He suggested the item be referred back to staff, so they could properly address the changes, and come back with a new proposal that considered these parameters.

  • Councillor Harvey agreed, and put forward a referral motion, to send this back to staff, which ended debate, as per procedural bylaw

  • Mayor Lehman noted that this referral motion, if carried, would go in front of City Council for approval โ€“ at that time, the planner/developer could give a deputation on the matter.

  • Referral Motion CARRIED (FOR: Riepma, Kungl, Ward, Thomson, N.Harris, Harvey, J.Harris, McCann; AGAINST: Aylwin, Morales, Lehman)
