Notice of the passing of the official plan By-law 2024-88

Thursday, June 6, 2024

AND TAKE NOTICE that under the provisions of section 17 of the Planning Act, the applicant, any person or public body who, before the by-law was passed, made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submission to Council or the Minister may appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) in respect of the Official Plan Amendment by filing a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the City of the Corporation of the City of Sault Ste. Marie at the address set out below no later than the 25th day of June, 2024. A notice of appeal must set out the reasons for the appeal along with the land use planning ground or grounds upon which the appeal is based and must be accompanied by the fee required by the OLT. An objection filed with the City Clerk before the day of the passing of the by-law adopting an Official Plan Amendment is not considered a notice of appeal under the Planning Act. A notice of appeal to the OLT must be filed with the City Clerk after the date of the passing of the by-law and not later than the date set out in this paragraph. The decision of the City Council is final, if the notice of appeal is not received.
An explanation of the purpose and effect of the by-law, describing the lands to which they apply and a key map showing the location of the lands to which the by-law apply is attached. The complete by-law is available for inspection in my office during regular office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
The proposed official plan amendment is exempt from approval by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. 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 Council to the OLT. 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. Each appeal must be accompanied by a certified cheque or money order payable to the Minister of Finance in the amount of $1,100.00.
No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the Council or, in the opinion of the OLT, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
If you wish to appeal to the OLT, you must use the OLT appeal form. A copy of the appeal form is available from the OLT website at https://olt.gov.on.ca.
 
DATED at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, this 5th day of June, 2024.
