May 24, 2016 -
Pursuant to 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:
Part Patrick Street on Registered Plan C-22, Kingston, being all of PIN 36056-0150; Part Depot Street on Registered Plan C-22, Kingston, being a portion of PIN 36056-0151; Part Lots 20, 35, 50, and 65 on Registered Plan C-22, Kingston, being a portion of PIN 36056-0194; Part Lots 71-74, 79-81 on Registered Plan C-22, Kingston, being a portion of PIN 36056-0160; all more particularly described as Parts 1, 2, 3, 7, 17 and 18 on Plan 13R-21314.
Explanatory note: The municipal lands described above are subject to a proposed land exchange agreement between the City of Kingston and Weston Foods (Canada) Inc. to secure public lands in support of the K&P Trail corridor, a portion of the identified corridor width for a potential Wellington Street extension, and lands necessary for upgrades to the City's Public Works site at 701 Division St. The unopened portion of Patrick Street north of Railway Street (Parts 1, 2 and 3) has been used by Weston at 83 Railway St. for more than 60 years to access its land. Once closed, the City proposes to sell the land to Weston subject to retaining access rights in favour of the neighbouring property at 111 Railway St. that has also used the road allowance for access for decades. In addition to the closed portion of Patrick Street, the City also proposes to sell a 6m-wide strip (Part 7) which currently divides Weston's land holdings, a small triangular parcel adjacent to Depot Street (Part 17) and a small portion of unopened Depot Street (Part 18) to consolidate Weston's land holdings and to facilitate enhanced security fencing for the local businesses.
City Council will consider these matters on June 7, 2016 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., June 3, 2016. In the event that the matter is deferred, no further public notice will be given.
Dated at City of Kingston
this 24th day of May, 2016
