Highlights of October 4 Council meeting

October 5, 2021

Richter Street multi family

Council considered a rezoning request for a three-storey, five-unit townhouse development at 2590 Richter Street. The South Pandosy Urban Centre and Osprey Park are one block south of the proposed townhouses. The existing home on the property will be demolished. The public hearing was waived although Council will accept written correspondence until October 18.

Electronic meetings

Council OK’d a new policy allowing for permanent remote participation in Council meetings and public hearings. The changes include allowing the public to participate electronically if unable to attend in person and allowing councillors to participate remotely for two consecutive meetings or beyond with authorization from the Mayor.
