A Closed Session discussion was held on the above Rezoning Application, in particular whether or not a Section 39 Rezoning be done on the above property as one lot, or a Section 39 Rezoning be done with the lot being subdivided into two lots.

It was then moved by Mel Steffens and seconded by John Sabean that the next step in the process of the application to rezone the property at 42 Epworth Park Road would be for the Committee to create a set of terms and conditions to accompany the Section 39 Document, with the members submitting conditions to the Development Officer by Friday, January 23rd.  The Development Officer is to have a Draft Report made available to the Committee the second meeting in February (February 16th).
Motion carried.
