WHEREAS, the Council of the Corporation of the City of Cornwall passed Official Plan Amendment No. 17 by Bylaw 181-2008 and associated Zoning Bylaw Amendment No. 182-2008 on November 24, 2008;

AND WHEREAS, the OPA and Rezoning are for lands legally described as Parts of Lots 13 and 14, Concession 1, City of Cornwall, commonly referred to as portions of the former Domtar Fine Papers Wood Room and employee parking site, north of Second Street West and south of Seventh Street West;

AND WHEREAS, the OPA changed the City's Official Plan Land Use Designation on approximately 36 acres from 'Industrial' (IND) to 'Comprehensive Redevelopment Area' (CRA) and the associated rezoning on approximately 15 acres of the aforementioned 36 acres, from Manufacturing 20 (MFR 20) zone to Open Space 10 (OSP 10) with site specific special provisions and a Holding (H) category;

AND WHEREAS, the portions of land subject to the rezoning is proposed to be purchased by the Municipality in order to accommodate the construction of a Multi-Sport Facility, including a multi-pad rink that will replace two aging ice facilities;

AND WHEREAS, the new O.P. Land Use designation of 'CRA', which was not appealed and is therefore deemed to be in effect, promotes the redevelopment of large unique sites containing inappropriate land uses. Also, CRA designated lands are to accommodate comprehensive development schemes as a form of a "seeding project" in an attempt to initiate more extensive redevelopment in adjoining areas, particularly given the significance to Cornwall of the former Domtar lands as a primary Brownfields opportunity.

That it has considered its position with respect to the passing of Bylaw 182-2008 and the matters presented in an appeal to the subject amendment by Mr. James Marshall, and continues to support the passing of the Bylaw.
