Passed    Motion To: That the Rules of Procedure be suspended to consider the following motion in order to permit development to proceed at 220 Sunnyside Avenue and 45 Drouin Avenue notwithstanding the recently passed Interim Control By-law. WHEREAS on 12 July 2017 Council passed By-law No. 2017-245 establishing interim control for lands including the lands at 220 Sunnyside Avenue and 45 Drouin Avenue; and, WHEREAS the purpose of establishing interim control was to temporarily halt the development of low-rise detached and multi-unit dwellings that, given the number of bedrooms, appear more as rooming houses in areas where such may be disruptive to maintaining a healthy neighbourhood fabric and character while the related planning policies are being studied; and, WHEREAS the owner of 220 Sunnyside Avenue has submitted a building permit application for an addition to enlarge the existing three unit building; and, WHEREAS the proposed size of one of the dwelling units in the building after the addition would exceed the permissible size under the Interim Control By-law; and, WHEREAS the owner of 45 Drouin Avenue has submitted a building permit application for the addition of a four season sun room on the rear of the townhouse dwelling unit; and, WHEREAS these proposed developments are not the type of development intended to be temporarily halted, are in keeping with the neighbourhood fabric and character, and would not have an effect on the outcome of the study; and WHEREAS staff are supportive of the proposed properties being exempt from interim control; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council repeal By-law No. 2017-245 as it relates to the lands known municipally as 220 Sunnyside Avenue and 45 Drouin Avenue.
