A previous public meeting was held with respect to this application on February 19, 2015. An additional public meeting is required for this application because the original application did not identify the existing quarry as being subject to the application to amend the Zoning Bylaw .
Applications for Official Plan amendment and zoning bylaw amendment to amend the Official Plan and rezone the subject properties addressed as 2357 and 2363 Unity Rd. to permit the expansion of the Elginburg Quarry, located to the east of the subject properties. The applicant is
proposing to amend the Official Plan designation of the subject lands to ‘Mineral Resource Area - Aggregates'; amend Schedule 7-B ‘Natural Heritage Area ‘A'' of the Official Plan to remove ‘Riparian Habitat' from the subject lands and amend Schedule 8-B ‘Natural Heritage Area ‘B'' of the Official Plan to remove ‘Significant Woodland', ‘Contributory Woodland' and ‘Unevaluated Wetland'. Since the initial Public Meeting it was determined that Schedule 5 of the City of Kingston Official Plan incorrectly identifies the current location of the Rideau Trail. The applicant is proposing to amend Schedule 5 of the Official Plan to correctly identify the current location of the Rideau Trail. To amend the zoning of the subject properties from the general rural ‘A2' zone to a special extractive industrial ‘M5' zone and a special open space ‘OS' zone within the former
Township of Kingston Zoning Bylaw Number 76-26. The initial application to amend Zoning Bylaw Number 76-26 did not identify the lands encompassing the existing quarry as part of the application. The applicant is now proposing to also amend the zoning of the existing
quarry to permit the expansion of the quarry by reducing the minimum side yard to 0 metres where the existing quarry will abut the quarry expansion area. Also to reduce the front, rear and interior side yard provisions of the existing quarry on lands that do not abut the expansion
area to be consistent with current standards as set out in the Aggregate Resources of Ontario, Provincial Standards Version 1.0.
