Application for Consent and Zoning By-Law Amendment – Sandwood Road – January 20, 2023 – Planning Committee Meeting Update

An update on the Planning Committee Meeting on January 20th regarding the application to sever a back lot and rezone the back lots. Thanks to all of the concerned Three Mile Lake property owners who voiced their concerns on this application. Your voices were heard, loud and clear, particularly with the 4 new Township councillors who are new members of the Planning Committee. They decided to defer a decision and to go back to the District of Muskoka (which is responsible for water quality, not the Township) for an explanation as to why the District wasn’t opposed to this application, even though the District lists Three Mile as an endangered lake.

This application will be submitted again and discussed at a future Planning Committee meeting. We’ll keep you posted.

John Roberts, President Three Mile Lake Association
