319 McRae - Development applications are in

The developer has filed three applications with the city for 319 McRae - related but separate. I thought I would collect them here.

If I have this right, the Official Plan Amendment needs to be passed before the zoning could be requested. Once both of those are approved (if approved) then the site-plan would go forward.

Note that the site-plan that is on file now may not be the site-plan the developer goes forward with once they get the first two amendments through. So, without being overly cynical, just keep that in mind throughout any participation you do!

The "commentary" period for all three is currently open. Your comments should be sent to the city planner:
