South Frontenac Committee of the Wholeby Wilma Kenny

After three hours discussing proposed revisions to the Township’s Official Plan, Council sent several items back for further information, and agreed to defer making any recommendations until the October 23 Committee of the Whole.

At that time, they hope to have either attendance or written representation from the Cataraqui Conservation Authority, Public Health and the Township’s lawyer. Items still under consideration include questions relating to back-lot development on private lanes, ‘Fractional Ownership’ (cottage time-shares), clarification of the boundaries of the hamlet of Sydenham that may feasibly be serviced by municipal water, designation and mapping of wetlands and the difference between the terms ‘Environmental Protection’ and ‘Environmental Sensitivity’. No date has been set for a public meeting to review proposed changes to the plan.


In regard to Mitchell Creek Bridge, CAO Burns reported the project is on target for time, and noted that the platform necessary to support the crane has to be particularly wide, but is temporary

Due to high winds, there was considerable paint over spray on the centre line of the newly constructed portion of Sydenham Road: Burns reported that the company that did the painting will try to scrub off some of the excess paint.

Mayor Davison said he couldn’t attend the October 23 COW meeting, because he would be "participating in a wildlife management program in Northern Ontario" at that time.
