Reeve Upham declared the Public Hearing open at 1:06 p.m. There were 5 members of the public present for the Public Hearing.
Krystle Fedoretz, Planning and Development, informed Council that the Public Hearing was advertised in accordance with Section 230 of the M.G.A.
Krystle then informed Council that the purpose of the Public Hearing is to hear from anyone affected by Bylaw No. 2016-05 which is a bylaw to amend Land Use Bylaw No. 2013-50 as it relates to rezoning 10 acres in N 1/2 NW 13-57-6-W4 from Agricultural to Country Residential One (CR1).
Reeve Upham requested if there were any written submissions in opposition to or in favor of the proposed rezoning.
Krystle Fedoretz read a letter from Loreen B. Reynolds in support of the proposed subdivision providing there is a restrictive covenant placed on the property.
Reeve Upham then called upon anyone wishing to speak in opposition to the proposed rezoning.
Leigh Babcock spoke in opposition to the proposed rezoning. He presented a picture of the property as it currently is covered in water. There is a natural water course on the corner of the proposed subdivision and it is currently covered in water and if that water is diverted it may affect adjacent properties.
Daleen Pinder, nearest resident to the property spoke in opposition. They are farmers and concerned with quads and people coming onto their property, with the potential of dogs from the proposed subdivision chasing their cattle. She also stated that with the present state of the economy, there are lots of properties for sale.
Mr. John Holley then read his letter supporting the proposed rezoning, aloud to Council.
Following the presentations, Reeve Upham declared the public Hearing closed.
Time: 1:30 p.m.
