Take Notice that the Council of The Corporation of the Township of Ramara will hold a Public Meeting to consider a proposed municipally-led Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment pursuant to Sections 17, 26 and 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
|Date and Time||Monday October 30, 2023 Commencing at 7:00 p.m.|
|Meeting Location||Council Chambers (2297 Highway 12, Brechin) and Zoom Platform|
|File Numbers||OP-3/23 and Z-9/23|
|Subject Property||Lands Abutting Benson Road, Fish Sideroad, Victoria Park Road, Williams Road and Willison Sideroad|
The purpose of the Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendments is to add policies to specific properties that abut Benson Road, Fish Sideroad, Victoria Park Road, Williams Road and Willison Sideroad, which are subject to the Ramara – Rama First Nation roads transfer. The road segments will be transferred to the ownership of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation. The proposed amendments will add specific language to the properties, deeming the lots to be considered fronting on an open public road. The amendment also removes the specific roads from Schedule B “Roads Plan” in the Township of Ramara Official Plan.
The meeting will be a Hybrid Meeting accessed on the Zoom platform, in person in the Council Chambers and live streamed on the Township’s YouTube Channel. You have the option to attend the meeting in person or virtually. If you wish to attend virtually, please advise the Township of your email address no later than Friday October 27, 2023, so an invitation to join the public meeting can be sent.

Written submissions can be sent electronically to [email protected], and it can be dropped in the mail drop box at the Township Administration Centre, 2297 Highway 12, Brechin or faxed to (705) 484-0441.
