  • Establish any other related development parameters

on a portion of 105 Junot Avenue South.

Your comments will be used to prepare a recommendation to City Council.  All comments received will become public information. This means that any information provided in written submissions, including names and contact information, will become part of the public record.

You should submit your comments no later than September 4, 2019, quoting Z-05-2019.  Copies of all letters will be forwarded to City Council and to the applicant. 

Background

The property is currently vacant land owned by the City of Thunder Bay. The Applicant would acquire the lands once the proposed amendment to the Zoning By-law and a number of other requirements are completed. 

There are residential uses to the north, an emergency services facility to the east, open space to the south, and a community centre to the west of the subject lands.

The subject lands are zoned “NC3” – Neighbourhood Commercial Three Zone and designated as residential in the Official Plan.

Proposal

The applicant has applied to permit a 58 unit Youth Residence with an on-site commercial kitchen and shared dining space.  There will also be a Community Resource Centre that includes a program/meeting space and offices for support services.

The proposed building is a single storey with a footprint of approximately 2,638 square metres.

The applicant’s site plan has been provided for your review.

Purpose and Effect of Proposal

The purpose of the proposed amendment is to define and permit a “Youth Residence and Community Resource Centre”. The proposed definition for a “Youth Residence and Community Resource Centre” is a place that provides accommodation primarily for youth where each private suite has a separate entrance from a common hall and may have a separate private bathroom, but where common dining areas, lounges, and recreation rooms are provided, and where residents and members of the public are provided with health, welfare, or social support services and resources.

The effect of this amendment would be to permit the applicant to construct a Youth Residence and Community Resource Centre at this location.
