TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Municipality of Calvin passed By-law No. 2022-019 on July 12, 2022, under Section 34 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990.

Purpose and Effect: The Municipality of Calvin passed Zoning By-law No. 2022-019 to implement the policies of the new East Nipissing Official Plan. The by-law includes new and modified definitions, the addition of regulations for storage containers, drive-through facilities, bed and breakfast establishments, accessory and additional residential units, home based businesses, shoreline setbacks and separation distances. The updated by-law also adds to the list of permitted uses in the Rural (RU), Limited Service Rural (LSR) and Commercial Recreational (CR) Zones. The effect is to increase the opportunity for orderly growth and development throughout the municipality. No changes have been made to standards for minimum lot size, frontage and setbacks in the zones. Some MX zones have been removed from the schedule to the by-law. The by-law repeals By-law No. 2000-011 and all amendments thereto; however, the applicable amendments have been carried forth into the new by-law. No map is provided since the by-law affects all properties in the Municipality.

APPEAL - The last date for filing a notice of appeal of the by-law is August 16, 2022. Any such appeal must be filed with the clerk of the municipality and must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the fee required by the Ontario Land Tribunal. Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Ontario Land Tribunal. A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf. No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person of public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the Council of the Municipality of Calvin or, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION related to the zoning by-law is available during regular office hours at the municipal office.

DATED at the Municipality of Calvin, July 27, 2022.
