Final council meeting has lighter agenda

By Staff

Morinville – The final meeting of Morinville Town Council before summer break takes place Tuesday night and consists of a relatively light agenda.

Council will receive one delegation Tuesday night, Doug Wright, Vice Chair of Sponsorship for the Military Family Resource Centre Yellow Ribbon Campaign.

A public hearing is scheduled for 8 p.m. to hear opinions on a request to rezone 10008 99 Avenue from R1 to R5, allowing the single-family home to be levelled to make way for a multi-family dwelling. There has been some opposition to the notion by neighbours who wish to see the historical districts’ single-family integrity preserved. The hearing precedes second and third reading of a bylaw to allow or disallow the request. Council will also give first reading to a bylaw to rezone another property in town from R1 to R4.

Also on council’s list of blyaws Tuesday night is second and third reading of the Town of Morinville’s new Community Standards Bylaw. This bylaw passed first reading June 28 after having been somewhat thinned out by the Town’s legal experts who recommended removing some items that were already covered by provincial or federal regulations.

Also on the agenda is a request to extend a subdivision development approval and a request to change control of the Town’s human resources policies from council controlled to administration control. If approved, council would oversee an overarching human resources policy with day-to-day governance of employee policy handled at the administrative level.

The public portion of this week’s council meeting will take place at 7:30. Council will meet at the Community Cultural Centre due to the Town of Morinville’s forthcoming move to the Parish Hall. will live stream the meeting beginning at 7:30 p.m.

  1. I’m hoping there’s much more oppostion to the rezoning of 10008 – 99 Ave. I live right next door and do not want a multi-family dwelling ruining our quiet neighbourhood.

  2. Good luck to you on that Christian. Speaking from experience (MCCC next to the residential area) you’ll soon find out your only one person in the way of what the Town wants. Whats that term the CAO likes to use… your only 1%, and really what are you baseing these fears on??? Maybe they’ll do a study after its built. And not to mention the new Noise By-Law only protects the Town and not you.
