New lease on life for former school

In a By-law passed September 6th, the former Elma Public School land has been rezoned from Agriculture to Rural Commercial Exception 10 holding (CR-10-h).

The CR-10-h designation will mean that the land can now be used for any of the following purposes: public storage facility, recreational vehicle storage, training or trade school, office for a small business, commercial garage, custom workshop, recreational vehicle wash bay, or recreational vehicle waste transfer and storage station.

The “h” or holding designation only applies to the last option, but according to the approved By-law #2011-59, it “shall be lifted upon issuance of the required Ministry of the Environment approval.”
According to Hugh Garlough, Manager for Public Works in South Dundas Township, there have been “no comments from neighbouring properties.”
