Location: 58 George Street, Collingwood 

Legal Description: Plan 186, Lot 6 N PT Lot 7; Town of Collingwood, County of Simcoe

Area: 0.13 hectares

The subject property is located on the south side of George Street and the east side of Ste. Marie Street. The subject property contains a former place of worship, that is currently vacant, a single-detached dwelling, and a detached accessory building (garage).

The Purpose and Effect of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to re-zone the subject property from Community Services (CS) to Community Services Exception (CS-X) and Residential Second Density Exception (R2-X) to facilitate a future Consent application to create one new residential lot on the eastern portion of the property that would be comprised of the existing single detached dwelling and detached accessory building (garage). The proposed retained lot would be comprised of the former place of worship building which is intended to be a future Day Care Centre. 

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would establish site-specific provisions for the proposed CS-X zone to recognize existing front, rear, and interior and exterior side yard setbacks for the existing building. The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would also establish site-specific provisions for the proposed R2-X zone to recognize the existing rear yard setback for the existing single detached dwelling, the existing rear yard setback for the detached accessory building, and the existing minimum separation distance between the detached accessory building and single detached dwelling. 

Any person may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.  

If a person or public body would otherwise have the ability to appeal the decision of Council of the Town of Collingwood to the Ontario Land Tribunal, but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Collingwood before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision. 

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Collingwood before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.   

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Council of the Town of Collingwood on the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment you must make a written request to Planning Services, Town of Collingwood, P.O. Box 157, Collingwood, Ontario L9Y 3Z5 or via email at bfrisch@collingwood.ca
