Pursuant to City of Kingston Bylaw No. 91-272 (A Bylaw to Authorize the Adoption of a Policy with regard to the Maintenance and Closure of Laneways and Road Allowances), and the City's Public Notice Policy and the Disposition of Real Property Policy take notice that the Council of the Corporation of the City of Kingston intends to permanently close, declare surplus and dispose of the following municipal property:
Lands affected: A portion of an unopened boundary road allowance between the City of Kingston and the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands, north of Seabrooke Road, west of Big Hill Road, and south and east of Highway 15, more particularly described as Part 1 on Reference Plan 13R-21804 and Part 2 on Reference Plan 28R-14954.
Explanatory note: The subject property is a portion of an unopened boundary road allowance between the City of Kingston and the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands, and is under the joint jurisdiction of the City and the Township. The surrounding lands are owned by 2005948 Ontario Limited (o/a Canadian Wollastonite) and are part of an area proposed for extractive mining operations. The City and Township propose to transfer the unopened boundary road allowance to 2005948 Ontario Limited for its licensed mining operation, in exchange for a re-aligned boundary road allowance located to the east, more particularly described as Part 1 on Reference Plan 28R-14954 (the "Future Road Allowance"). The City and the Township intend to lease the Future Road Allowance to 2005948 Ontario Limited, and at the end of the lease intend to dedicate the Future Road Allowance lands as a public boundary line highway. By-laws of the City and the Township are required to permanently close the unopened boundary road allowance before the City and Township can declare the land surplus and sell it to the abutting landowner.
City Council will consider these matters on September 4, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at its regular meeting to be held in the Council Chambers, City Hall, Kingston.
Anyone wishing to be heard regarding these matters should contact the Clerk's Office or provide written comments before 4:30 p.m., September 3, 2018.
