TAKE NOTICE that the General Committee of the Council of the Corporation of the City of Barrie will hold a public meeting on Monday, September, 10, 2012, at 7:00p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 70 Collier Street, to review an application for an amendment to the Zoning By-law submitted by Innovative Planning Solutions on behalf of 2280202 Ontario Inc. for lands located on the south side of Cumberland Street, east of Melburn Street. The properties are legally described as Lots 9, 10, 11, and 12 south side on Registered Plan 433, as well as part of Robinson Street on Registered Plan 40 in the City of Barrie. The properties are known municipally as 140 to 152 Cumberland Street and are located in the Allandale Planning Area. The assembly of properties is approximately 0.4 hectares (1 acre) in size.
The lands are considered to be designated Residential in the City’s Official Plan and are currently zoned Multiple-Family Dwelling First Density Residential RM1 in accordance with By-law 2009-14.
The owner has applied to amend the current zoning of the property to Multiple-Family Dwelling Second Density Residential Special Policy RM2 (SP) and Apartment Dwelling First Density Residential Special Policy RA1 (SP).
The easterly position of the properties (0.16 ha) is proposed to be zoned Residential RM2 (SP) to accommodate a 3 storey, 12 unit apartment. The Special Provisions (SP) provides for a density of 74 units per hectare, a 1.1 metre wide landscape buffer, and that the required amenity area to be located within the required side and rear yard setback. By-law 2009-141 permits a maximum density of 53 units per hectare, requires a 3 metre wide landscape buffer along the rear property line adjacent to a parking area and that the amenity space not be located within any required yard setback.
The westerly portion of the property (0.24 ha) is proposed to be zoned Residential RA1 (SP) to accommodate 28 residential units in a 5 storey building. The Special Provisions (SP) provides for a 1.1 m wide landscape buffer, 40% surface parking coverage and 35 parking spaces. By-law 2009-141 requires a 3 metre wide landscape buffer along the property line adjacent to a parking area, a maximum of 35% surface parking coverage, and 42 parking spaces based on the proposed 28 residential units.
