Short Term Accommodation notice

Draft Short-term Accommodation Licencing By-Law Public Meeting This is a very, very important meeting!!!!!

We are now moving forward into the final stages of a much-needed Short Term Accommodation (STA) Licencing By-law. A Public Meeting is a requirement to receive public input before passing this by-law. We need your support to provide a strong voice in showing this Council that they have public support to licence commercial STA businesses in residential areas in order to provide compatibility and avoid serious conflicts, as well ensure the health and safety of the travelling public.

The Public Meeting is scheduled for April 15th, 2013 at 7.00 p.m. at the Town Hall Council Chambers.

You can help by writing comments in support of licencing to Sharon Long, Planning & Building Services Division, via email at slong@bluemountains.ca or by regular mail at 32 Mill Street, Box 310, Thornbury, Ontario, N0H 2P0. Comments received on or before April 9th, 2013 related to this matter will be included in the circulated Council Agenda package.

You can also help and show your support by simply coming to the meeting. Let’s fill the Chambers and show this Council that we care and we expect a favourable decision in moving forward with a STA Licencing By-law, sooner rather than later. The quality of our life and reasons for living here depend on this decision.

If you have any questions or require clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me mpseguin@rogers.com.
