The Development Officer advised the Committee that as requested last meeting, he has obtained copies of Zoning By-laws from the Town of Oromocto and the Town of Sussex regarding excavation of land on residential lots and found that their by-laws were pretty much the same as ours.
Following the review of Deputy Mayor Black’s Proposal to include Excavation of Residential Lots, a vote was taken with the majority in favor of not including this in the by-law.  Section 16 was then reviewed with changes made.  It was moved by Ralph Stevens that Section 16 Re:  Landfill of Sand and Gravel be adopted as amended.  Motion seconded by Philip Kelly.  Carried.
The Committee has now completed the review of Draft One of Zoning By-law No. 215.  The Secretary is to make all the appropriate changes and submit Draft Two for review, as soon as possible.
