Council grants Aboriginal Housing’s report request – Manitoulin Expositor

GORE BAY – Gore Bay council is allowing Ontario Aboriginal Housing Support Services Corporation (OAHSSC) to provide a one-page report for a multi-unit housing complex in town, to allow for the transition of property. However, OAHSSC will need to submit a full stormwater management plan after the transfer of land has taken place.

At a meeting earlier this month, Gore Bay council considered a letter from Wanda Chorney, title services manager with OAHSSC, dated July 9, 2020. “OAHSSC is acquiring vacant land at 3 Water Street from the Manitoulin DSB (District Services Board) this October/November. We have been approved for rezoning to construct a multi-unit housing complex, subject to a number of conditions that we need to fulfill. One condition is in regards to conservation and mediation for flooding.”

“We will not start construction until 2022,” wrote Ms. Chorney. “Usually the mediation is included in stormwater management plans that go for approval with site plan approvals to municipal offices, not before land is transferred.”
