RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’urbanisme recommande au Conseil d’approuver une modification au Règlement de zonage 2008-250 afin de faire passer le zonage du 1110, promenade Longfields de Zone d’aménagement futur (DR) à Zone de petites institutions, Sous-zone A (I1A), comme le montre le document 1.
The subject property is known municipally as 1110 Longfields Drive and is located between Strandherd Drive and the Clearbrook Drive road allowance as shown in Document 1. The vacant 3.23 hectare parcel is adjacent to the existing École Secondaire Pierre Savard High School.
The property is owned by the Conseil des Écoles Catholiques de Langue Française du Centre Est and is intended to accommodate the proposed expansion of the existing École Secondaire Pierre Savard High School at this location. The expansion will accommodate two sports fields, a bus loop and future portables.
The subject property shown in Document 1 is currently zoned Development Reserve Zone (DR).
To be consistent with the adjacent school zone, the vacant parcel shown in Document 1 will be rezoned to a Minor Institutional Zone, Subzone A (I1A).
The subject property is designated “General Urban Area” in the Official Plan, which permits a variety of uses in support of residential communities including school uses as proposed. The property is designated “School” in the South Nepean Secondary Plan Area 4, 5 and 6. The property is part of an approved draft plan that contemplated the possibility of an institutional use at this location. The abutting land uses include institutional to the west, open space to the east and residential to the north and south. The proposed institutional use is compatible with the surrounding land uses.
Rezoning the subject property as shown in Document 1 is required to implement the proposed expansion of the existing École Secondaire Pierre Savard High School. The proposed rezoning will create facilities that will benefit the targeted school population from this community and the neighbouring community at large.
The Department supports the Zoning By-law amendment application because it is consistent with policies in the Official Plan.
Concurrent Site Plan Control application (D07-12-11-0107) has been submitted for development of the expansion of the existing École Secondaire Pierre Savard High School.
There are no legal implications associated with this report.
