PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

Please take notice that Corner Brook City Council adopted proposed Amendments No. 24-01 to the City’s Integrated Municipal Sustainability Plan 2012 (i.e. the Municipal Plan) and 2012 Development Regulations respectively at a regular meeting of Council held on May 27, 2024.

This administrative housekeeping amendment (Amendment No. 24-01) was brought forward by administration for the purpose of future land disposition. The purpose of this map amendment is to rezone city-owned land on the north side of Corporal Pinksen Memorial Drive from ‘Mosaic Residential (MR)’ to ‘Innovation District (ID).’  Pre-zoning the Subject Property would allow for increased development options and streamline the development approval process once the land disposition process and transfer are finalized. The Subject Property is 15 acres and is bound by vacant lands to the west and east, the former lands zoned ID and latter zoned ‘Open Space (OS).’ The developable portion is 12.3 acres. The new Western Long Term Care Home facility (zoned ‘Community Service (CS)’) is immediately east of and adjacent to the vacant lands zoned OS.

If you would like to view the proposed amendments or receive more information on the proposal, please visit the City’s website, call (709) 637-1578, or visit City Hall during regular business hours, Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm.

If you have objections to the proposal, please submit them in writing to the City Clerk at The City of Corner Brook, P.O. Box 1080, Corner Brook, NL A2H 6E1.
