6. DEVELOPMENT OFFICER’S MEMO DATED JULY 31, 2002 RE:   DRAFT ZONING BY-LAW – SWIMMING POOL REGULATIONS
The Committee reviewed all definitions of a “Swimming Pool” contained in By-law No. 16, Division 1 and Division 2 and the Draft Zoning By-law, in an attempt to come up with one definition.  It was noted there was a  discrepancy regarding the maximum depth of water allowed.
Following the discussion, the Committee concurred with Andrew Shaw’s definition as follows:
“swimming pool” means an artificial body of water intended for recreational purposes and created by a premanufactured or manmade structure to a design depth of water greater than 0.6 metres.
The following motion was then made:
“…moved by Ralph Stevens that PAC forward Andrew Shaw’s definition of  a “swimming pool” on to the Development Officer for research regarding the proper depth, to be brought back to the Committee by the 1st or 2nd meeting in September….”
Motion seconded by Michael Hare.  Carried.
