Notice of Extension: Expiry of the Official Plan Amendment Community Improvement Plan

Thursday, June 2, 2022

At its open Council meeting, on May 24, 2022, under the Planning section, the Council of the Corporation of the City of Sault Ste. Marie passed By-law 2022-93 which authorizes the extension of the Rental Housing Community Improvement Plan (“CIP”) for an additional two years. In 2013 Council passed By-law 2013-168 which adopted an Official Plan Amendment implementing a Rental Housing Community Improvement Plan.  The purpose and effect of the Official Plan Amendment was to allow for a tax rebate program to encourage the construction of new rental accommodations. The extension of the expiry of the CIP has been extended twice before by By-law 2018-176 dated August 13, 2018 and By-law 2020-155 dated August 10, 2020, each for a period of two years.
The last date for filing a notice of appeal is June 22, 2022, which is twenty days from the date of this Notice.
To appeal, the notice of appeal must be filed with the Clerk of the Municipality.  The reasons for the appeal must be set out. The specific part of the Official Plan Amendment to which the appeal applies must be stated and it must be accompanied by the requisite Ontario Land Tribunal’s (“OLT”) fee. The fee must be in the form of a certified cheque or money order payable to the Minister of Finance in the amount of $1,100.
Should you wish to appeal to the OLT, you must use the OLT appeal form. A copy of the appeal form is available on the OLT website at:
The decision of the Council is final if a notice of appeal is not received on or before the last day for filing a notice of appeal.
Only individuals, corporations or public bodies may appeal a decision of the municipality or planning board to the Ontario Land Tribunal. A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.
No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the plan was adopted, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Land Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
DATED at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario this 2nd day of June, 2022.
