1. Welcoming Remarks - Warden Timothy Habinski
Format: Council is to deal with two public hearings. At the end of the second public hearing the Public Hearing session will be closed and Council will return to its regular session of Council.

Purpose: The purpose of a Public Hearing is to permit members of the public to make their views known to Council, via oral or written submissions, concerning, solely, the application before Council.

The 1st Public Hearing concerns File No. 66520-35 2017 MPS/LUB-002: an application by the registered property owner, Wesley Sproule. In this instance the Public Hearing serves to inform the public of Council’s intention to adopt an amendment to the Annapolis County East End Area Municipal Planning Strategy Future Land Use Map and change the designation of the existing trailer park property located at the intersection of Highway 1 and Vault Road in the Community of Wilmot, identified as PID No. 05032412, from RESIDENTIAL to COMMERCIAL and to concurrently adopt an amendment to the East End Area Land Use By-law Zoning Map to rezone the same property from the Residential Medium Density (R-2) Zone to the Highway Commercial (C-2) Zone. Upon the removal of the existing mobile homes this will permit up to 4 four-unit residential dwellings (townhouses) to be constructed on the property.

The 2nd Public Hearing concerns File No. 66520-35 2017 LUB-001: an application by Sefton Squires, the agent for the registered property owners, Shaun and Patricia Saunders. In this instance the Public Hearing serves to inform the public of Council’s intention to adopt an amendment to the Bridgetown Land Use By-law Zoning Map to rezone 11 Jeffery Street, in the community of Bridgetown, a property identified as PID No. 05149323, from the Institutional (I1) Zone to the Residential Light Density (R-1) Zone so as to redevelop the property into a single unit residential dwelling.

Procedure: all questions and comments throughout the public hearings are required to be addressed to the chair. The chair will afford an opportunity for public input and will ask that persons speaking identify themselves so that their comments may be recorded in the minutes of these proceedings and that the person speaking identify if they are speaking in favour or against the application. Written presentations are acknowledged first, followed by public oral presentations. Questions and comments from Council members are asked to be held until all public comment is heard.
