The applicant is seeking Council’s approval of its proposed Zoning By-law Amendment application to facilitate the construction of one semi-detached dwelling (2 units) on the subject lands. The proposal reflects what was presented at the Residents Meeting held on February 27, 2019. There will be a staff report with a recommendation to approve this modified plan at the Committee of the Whole Meeting on June 18th. The community, staff, and the applicant have worked together to address a number of concerns with the original application including modifying the proposal to reduce it to 2 storeys and reduce the Gross Floor Area to conform with various Council passed plans for the area. The full staff report is available at https://pub-richmondhill.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=26293 . If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
