Notice of intention to pass an amending bylaw: removal a Holding (H) symbol

In accordance with Section 36 of the Planning Act R.S.O 1990 c.P.13., Guelph City Council on May 14, 2018 intends to pass a Zoning Bylaw amendment to remove a Holding (H) symbol from the City of Guelph Zoning By-law (1995)-14864.

The lands affected by the proposed amendment are municipally known as 73 Arthur Street South or Phase 3 of 5 Arthur Street South and legally described as Part of Grist Mill Lands, East side of Speed River, Plan 113 and Part Lot 76, and Lots 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 and 82, Plan 113, (as amended), designated as Parts 11, 12 and 13, 61R11955, together with an easement over Part 17, 61R11955 as in Instrument No. WC212993; City of Guelph.

The present zoning was passed by Guelph City Council on August 25, 2014. The R.4B-15.3 zoning for this phase of the development was approved with a Holding (H) symbol to
require:
• An urban design brief consistent with the approved Urban Design Master Plan;
• Confirmation of adequate water supply, sewage capacity and sewage treatment capacity;
• That the developer pay to the City, their share of the actual cost of constructing municipal services on Arthur Street South, Cross Street and Neeve Street across the frontage of the lands.

City staff have had this phase of the development peer reviewed by an architect and agree it is consistent with the approved Urban Design Master Plan and confirmed adequate services are available for this phase of the development. The applicant has also paid to the City costs associated with municipal services along the site’s frontage. The City is therefore in a position to
remove the Holding symbol from the lands to permit development in accordance with the regulations of the R.4B-15.3 Zone.

Guelph City Council will consider the proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment to remove the Holding (H) symbol at a meeting to be held on Monday May 14, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. in the Council
Chambers, City Hall, 1 Carden Street.
