D-14-575) to the City of Clarence-Rockland zoning by-law no. 2016-10. The affected property is described as 1100 St-Felix road, part of lot 23 con 8, part of part 1 plan 50r4166.

The proposed zoning by-law amendment would change the zoning category of the subject property from “rural (ru) zone” to “rural – exception 64 (ru-64) zone” and add site-specific provisions for this new zoning category in order to establish restrictions to the existing outside storage area associated with a home-based business. The request would have the effect of rendering the existing storage on site in conformity with the zoning by-law and ensuring the ongoing compatibility of the home-based business and associated storage uses with surrounding rural and residential land uses. No new development is proposed.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the council of the corporation of the City of Clarence-Rockland on the proposed zoning by-law amendment, you must make a written request to the corporation of the City of Clarence-Rockland, 1560 Laurier street, Rockland, on, k4k 1p7.

If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the municipal council of the City of Clarence-Rockland to the Ontario land tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the corporation of the City of Clarence-Rockland before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the corporation of the City of Clarence-Rockland before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario land tribunal unless, in the opinion of the tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

If applicable, the owner of any land that contains seven or more residential units is required to post this notice in a location that is visible to all of the residents.

A note about information you may submit to the municipality: under the authority of the municipal act, 2001 and in accordance with Ontario's municipal freedom of information and protection of privacy act (MFIPPA), all information provided for, or at a public meeting, public consultation, or other public process are considered part of the public record and will be used to assist in deciding on this matter, including resident deputations.
