Date set for park appeal

Staff

An appeal of the re-zoning of the property known as “Nelson Street Park” has been set for Thursday, May 24.
The Ontario Municipal Board hearing will start at 11 a.m. at the Civic Centre.
As previously reported, local resident Eric Rude submitted an appeal on behalf of himself and fellow “park” proponent Kalan Kielczewski back on Jan. 4.
Council voted 6-1 on Dec. 19 in favour of amending the zoning bylaw to re-zone the property, located between Minnie Avenue and Williams Avenue, from open space to Residential Type 2 (R2).
This was so the property can be divided into five lots and sold for residential development.
