Development Talk in Collingwood

Collingwood | by Catherine Thompson  

There are a couple of developments on agenda for tonight's Council meeting.

There are a couple of developments on the agenda for tonight's Collingwood council meeting.

A Collingwood councillor has put forward a notice of motion regarding the Admiral Collingwood Place project at the corner of Hume and Hurontario Streets and Admiral's Village next to it.

Joe Guardhouse's motion states that the town is the applicant for any required Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments to do with these developments.

That means, according to the motion, that the municipality assumes expenses, legal costs and staff time and any Ontario Municipal Board challenges.

The direction further states that when the decision to be the applicant was made, council wasn't fully aware of the implications of this action.

So Councillor Guardhouse wants council to rescind the portion of the resolution that directs the town to assume applicant status.

Also at tonight's planning and development meeting, a public meeting will be held on changes that would  allow the new owner of the former Contact Centre on Napier Street to build four single family homes on the property.

The developer also wants to put one large apartment on each floor of the existing building and put on an addition for two more apartments.

A neighbourhood group working to save the heritage building has given its thumbs up to the plan.
