TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Municipality of Huron Shores is holding a meeting on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in Council Chambers, Iron Bridge, Ontario, to seek Public Consultation as required under Section 22 of the Planning Act of Ontario, to amend an Official Plan.
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public and seek public consultation to include Schedule A4 as part of the Official Plan; and to amend Schedule A4 and Schedule A3a to identify Wildlife Feeding Habitat along the Mississagi River as identified and required by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Schedule A4 was inadvertently missed in the application submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing thus it was not included in the document approved by the Ministry December 16, 2011. As this schedule was missed, the modification required by the Ministry of Natural Resources for the Wildlife Feeding Habitat along the Mississagi River was also not included. Schedule A4 covers the area in the surveyed Thompson Township area formerly under the jurisdiction of the Corporation of the Township of Thompson. Schedule A3a highlights the Village of Iron Bridge area and is an enhanced portion of Schedule A3. The Wildlife Feeding Habitat in Schedule A3a will mirror the habitat identified in Schedule A3.
If you wish to be notified of the adoption of the proposed Official Plan Amendment, or of the refusal of a request to amend the Official Plan, you must make a written request to the Municipality of Huron Shores, P.O. Box 460, 7 Bridge St., Iron Bridge, ON P0R 1H0.
ANY PERSON may make written or verbal presentation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Official Plan Amendment.
IF A PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY does not make oral submissions at the April 25, 2012 Meeting, or make written submissions to the Municipality of Huron Shores before the proposed Official Plan Amendment is adopted, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Council of the Municipality of Huron Shores to the Ontario Municipal Board.
IF A PERSON OR PUBIC BODY does not make oral submissions to the Municipality of Huron Shores before the proposed Official Plan Amendment is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
