Public Hearing - Clayton Development application to rezone
Council did not receive any letters of objection to the developer's application to re-zone property in the Fairways subdivision. The re-zoning would allow Clayton Development to construct semidetached townhouses (24 units) instead of condominiums, which were outlined in the original development plan. Council proceeded with the recommendation from the Planning Advisory Committee to amend the Zoning By-law 300- 6-9, as requested.
