Hopefully July’s planning meeting will flow much more smoothly technology-wise speaking, but this month there are actually two different planning meetings. With a couple of items reserved two days after this one for Wednesday’s meeting, council will tackle a full slate of planning meeting items – applications and decisions – at this second of two meetings on July 11.
NOTE #1: Delegates will be able to appear at this meeting via telephone, but you do have to register with the clerks office before 10 am on Friday July 7. You can also submit written delegations and correspondences for agenda items.
NOTE #2: The meeting will be the open to the public, but if you would like to follow it from home, you will still be live-stream the meeting on the City of Guelph’s website here.
NOTE #3: This meeting is at 6 pm, a special meeting to pass the latest Official Plan Amendement will take place on Monday July 11 at 1 pm.
Decision Report 93 Arthur Street South Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment File: OZS21-007 – Last summer, Metalworks brought to council plans for the next phase of their development, and though there’s some minor modifications to the application in the staff report, the 14-storey building with 193 apartment units plus two commercial units on the ground floor is being recommended for approval more or less as presented last July.
Decision Report 300 Grange Road Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment File: OZS21-006 – Also from last July, there was this proposal for 21 cluster townhouse units plus two single detached residential dwellings for this currently empty lot. Staff are also recommending a seal of approval for this development after some alterations that include the driveway moving to the south end of the property.
Decision Report 78 and 82 Eastview Road Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment File: OZS19-004 – The application filed in February 2021 looked to build 30 cluster townhouses plus one five-storey apartment building with an additional 40 units on this site. Staff are giving this one the thumbs down because the developer was unable to demonstrate that there would be no negative impact on a nearby Provincially Significant Wetland, nor were they able to demonstrate that there would be adequate stormwater management.
Public Meeting for 785 Gordon Street Proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments File OZS22-005 – If this project is approved, say goodbye to the Days Inn on Gordon Street near the University of Guelph, and hello to a 10-storey mixed-use building containing 389 residential units and 600 square metres of commercial space on the first floor. This is the statutory planning meeting for this development; no final decision will be made and council will vote only to receive the report. This statutory planning meeting was supposed to take place in June at the meeting that was cancelled due to tech issues.
Statutory Public Meeting Report 1166-1204 Gordon Street Proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments File: OZS22-007 -This is a big parcel of land between Gordon and Landsdown, and it’s currently home to six different single detached dwellings, but this plan though has something else in mind. This application looks to develop two, 6-storey apartment buildings on the Gordon side with a total of 134 units and 22, 3-storey on-street townhouse units on the Landsdown side. This is the statutory planning meeting for this development; no final decision will be made and council will vote only to receive the report.
