Public Planning Meeting Oct. 12 (1 of 2)

On the agenda for the Tuesday, October 12 Public Planning meeting is an application for an Official Plan Amendment and a Zoning Bylaw Amendment for the property where the King City post office is currently located i.e. 20 Doctor’s Lane. Here is the notice for the meeting. Here is the Staff report.  As I look at the elevation plans I wonder if the property owner and the architect understand the this building is for King City. I think the architecture of this project is far more important than the building itself as I think that there is strong possibility of the whole area being redeveloped.  Public can register with [email protected] king.ca to make a deputation and/or they can send their questions and comments in via email.  Requests for deputations and emails for council review should be sent in by Tuesday noon hour.

Updating Village Urban Design Guidelines

If you want to influence how our three villages are evolving in terms of the look of new buildings and the streetscapes I encourage you to get involved with the review under way of the village urban design guidelines. it’s definitely time for an update as the current ones were done in 2006.  There are critical new considerations: need for a variety of housing units, multi residential units, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels for heating and cooling, our growth management strategy which includes intensification.  Virtual meetings focused on each of the three villages are scheduled. At SpeaKing you can read the draft discussion paper; for those interested specifically in King City the tape of the virtual open house held on October 6 will be posted there too.  The virtual open house for Schomberg is October 13 and for Nobleton is Oct. 14. Registration details for participation in these meetings is here.  Your input is very much wanted; participate in the open houses and/or contact Kristen Harrison at  [email protected] or 905 833 4065.

Experience an EV Oct. 2

 

Actions to respond to climate change often sound difficult; but, they can also set the stage for a great experience.  The biggest contributor of greenhouse gases in our community is transportation.  If we all drive Electric Vehicles (EVs) it will make a difference.  To see the EVs on the road today and to talk to drivers about their experience of driving one the October 2 event at the MunicipalCentre will interest you.  Its free.  For more information go to Climate Action King.
