Fairview Island Zoning and Development Proposal

LOBA has become aware of a development application for Fairview Island that has been submitted to the Town of Huntsville. LOBA has received many communications of concern and requests for more information regarding this proposal (potential loss of tree canopy, docks, landside access particularly from Glenmount and Nithgrove Roads, septic, plane and helicopter access, noise and light).

At LOBA's request, the developer/purchaser has:
  • Requested and obtained a deferral of the hearing of the matter at the Huntsville Planning Committee to June 14; and
  • Prior to the June 14 meeting, agreed to hold an information session for LOBA members and the public where the developer and planner will present the project and entertain questions.
Information on the development proposal may be obtained from the developer's planner, Marie Poirier (705-635-9860; or from the Planning Department at the Town of Huntsville (705-789-1751 ext. 2351; The planning report and proposed site plans are available from the Town of Huntsville.

LOBA will provide a further Newsflash when the date and time of the information session has been confirmed.
