Nobleton Car Wash Operating Hours

On Council June 24 agenda there is a report addressing the operating hours of the new carwash on King Road at east side of Nobleton.  The history of this development is complicated; it seems to me that the complexity was exacerbated by the proponent acting without approvals and various remediations being required.  I certainly concur that exemptions to the noise bylaw shnould not be granted as this business is not operating in isolation but rather is adjacent to residential lands.  (Often we hear of residents moving into an area with neighbours which are farms and the residents complain about odours from the farm; in this case we have a commercial enterprise moving into an area with homes next door and it expects the noise rules to be changed to meet their needs. )

Presentation on Municipal Comprehensive Review

Chief Planner of York Region will be making a presentation at June 24 Council about the Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR) process.  As there are 2 requests for conversion of employment lands in King to residential learning more about this process is very important.

Heritage Grant and Permits

On Council 6/24 agenda there is a report on an application for a permit for alterations and repairs on a designated heritage property and an application for a grant to contribute to the project.  I am very pleased that the property owner is taking good care of this property and that the Township has a program for contributing to its upkeep.  Many municipalities contribute more than King is doing but this application  shows that even our modest grant of $6,000 is a help.
