An application to build 30 townhouses on Gull Lake has been filed with the Town of Gravenhurst’s Planning Department. The applicant is Moody Bay Developments Ltd. The property for this proposed development is a 3.3-acre parcel immediately north of the Church St. Parkette.
Currently, the Town’s Planning Department is reviewing the application to determine if it is “complete.” Once the Planning department has determined that the application is complete, it will go the Gravenhurst Council to be approved or rejected.
The GSLRA has a copy of the application. The Board of Directors has some serious concerns regarding this development and is doing due diligence regarding the application. As we learn more, we will provide more information to members.
Moody Bay Developments is holding a public information meeting on Wednesday, August 1st at Centennial Centre in the Terry Fox Auditorium from 7 – 8:30 pm. We encourage you to attend the meeting to hear details about the proposed development. They will make a short presentation and answer questions.
However, if you attend the information meeting, the Board of the GSLRA recommends that do not express your objections at the meeting. Strong and vocal opposition at the meeting will not change the Developer’s plans, and we will appear to be another NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) group. Our opposition to the development must be expressed to the Members of Town Council and be based upon established Planning principles.
Please be assured that if this application does come before Council, your Lake Association will delegate at the meeting to represent the interests of our members.
LET’S SHOW STRENGTH IN NUMBERS — BRING A NEIGHBOUR …
Please contact the GSLRA Board of Directors if you have any questions.
