September 7, 2022 – Committee of the Whole Highlights

The agenda included several items including:

Draft Trailer By-Law Consultation Report

staff report as well as results from community consultation regarding the draft Trailer By-Law was presented by Matt Farrell and Heather Falconer. Council approved deferring discussion on alternate methods of regulating trailers until the review of the Township’s planning documents and directed staff to research ways to strengthen the Property Standards By-law to address derelict or unsightly trailers being located on residential properties.

For information regarding the Draft Trailer By-Law, including current regulation, please visit Have Your Say HK or contact our By-Law officer, Heather Falconer, by email.


Boiler Beach Road Traffic Study 

staff report was presented which included results of the Boiler Beach Road Traffic Study conducted by BT engineering. This information was presented at the Community Café on August 24th at Ainsdale Golf Course to further explore the issues and concerns of residents that would be most affected if Boiler Beach Road was either converted to one-way traffic only or potentially widened.

NWMO Site Selection Timeline Update

report was submitted by Project Coordinator Lindsay Small that included announcing an update to the NWMO timeline for site selection, extending the timeframe to the end of 2024 due to loss of time for face-to-face engagement and interaction owing to COVID-19. The shift of timeline for site selection is not expected to impact the overall schedule for the implementation of the DGR.
