(b) Draft Town of Grand Bay-Westfield Zoning By-laws – By-law No. 16 and 16A
A Closed Session discussion was held on the above Rezoning Application.  The Development Officer informed the Committee Members that on April 6, 1998,  he had given Stephen Williams a copy of the above Draft By-laws for his perusal.
The Development Officer reviewed the above By-laws and the Terms and Conditions  with the Committee.  Amendments were made on numbers 5, 8, 11 and 15 of the Terms and Conditions.  The Development Officer also informed the Committee that Schedule A was done wrong and should have been a Property Description and not a Map.
Stephen Williams was present at 8:00 p.m. for the Open Session of the meeting.  Mr. Williams was informed of the amendments made to the Terms and Conditions and was in agreement.  The only item of concern he had was with No. 11 of the Terms and Conditions pertaining to the Ventilation System.  He requested that due to the fact this is a small operation, he would prefer to prepare a Ventilation System Proposal, subject to approval by the Building Inspector,  rather than have a qualified engineer do so.  This matter was addressed and a new condition was put into place, replacing the original No. 11.   Also, placement of the bathroom was also addressed.
It was moved by Ralph Stevens that P.A.C. recommend Council adopt By-law No. 15 – Town of Grand Bay-Westfield Municipal Plan By-law, By-law No. 15A – Amendment to By-law No. 15,  and By-law No. 16 – Town of Grand Bay-Westfield Zoning By-law.
