75 Dublin – School Community Update Meeting, – Thursday, February 22, 2018 – 7:30pm

The City of Guelph has distributed of a Public Meeting on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 starting at 6pm in Council Chambers at City Hall.  The City’s notice describes the purpose of the applications as follows:

“An Official Plan Amendment application has been submitted to permit the development of a five storey apartment building where four storeys is the maximum permitted height (See attached concept plan).

The site was subject to a City-initiated Official Plan Amendment meant to implement the same five storey apartment development in 2016 together with site specific zoning. Council refused the Official Plan amendment to permit five storeys and approved site-specific zoning that permitted a four storey building. Both of these amendments were appealed and are currently at the Ontario Municipal Board awaiting further direction.

On November [12], 2017, (actual date was November 17, 2017) an OMB Motion Hearing was held to determine whether the appeal of the Official Plan amendment is valid and whether the zoning amendment should be repealed. At this time all parties are awaiting a decision from the OMB on these motions to provide greater clarity with respect to this new privately-initiated Official Plan amendment application and the status of the Council approved zoning (the D.2-9 Zone).”

You are invited to attend the scheduled school council meeting on Thursday, February 22, 2018 (6:00-7:30 pm) in the library at Central PS and following the council meeting (7:30 pm) will be a school community update to hear more about this chapter of the 75 Dublin Street North story.
