On October 19, 2017 the Focus Group had their third meeting with Enzo
Bertucci and staff from Loyalist. Following is a summary of the agenda
items discussed at that time.
1. Update from Kaitlin Corp meeting with Loyalist Township on
(a) At this meeting, the medium density block at the corner of Church and
Loyalist Blvd was discussed and the Township brought forward a concern
about the two low rise condo buildings and the perimeter town
bungalows. If these buildings were to end up with different owners (ie.
condo associations), then the services could not cross each other. Ideally
there would be one owner for the condo corporation and the same one for
the towns. Kaitlin will study this situation further and update at the next
(b) Windemere Estates – Phase 2 has been applied for and Phases 3 and 4
will be next.
At this time, the Focus Group presented the results of its recent survey
regarding interest in an independent/assisted living residence in our
community. The responses were very positive.
The results were as follows:
Yes – 147, No – 30.
8 interested in next 2 years. 5.37%
18 within next 3-5 years. 12.08%
59 within next 6-10 years. 39.60%
64 longer. 42.95%
2. Phase 9 Fill
To alleviate the problem of increased truck traffic on Country Club Drive
while bringing in fill to the Phase 9 Cul De Sac, Kaitlin decided to move fill
from the existing ground in Phase 10. There was some confusion with the
permits and fill is currently on hold until proper permits can be acquired.
Kaitlin was under the impression that the LCCRA had made a complaint
that caused this stoppage. It was made clear by the LCCRA members
present at the meeting, that they had in no way interfered to cause a
stoppage and in fact were pleased to see the work moving ahead. Kaitlin
was satisfied with the clarification.
3. Roof Update
The work on the roof was stalled as a result of the contractor having to
complete another project. Work resumed on Monday of this week.
4. Basement Progress
Once the roof has been replaced, further investigation of the leaks and
mould can be completed. Some members of the Loyalist community had
brought the mould issue to the attention of the health department and after
a visit in early October, Kaitlin closed the rooms to usage and has started
remediation of the issue. There is no time frame for completion and the
club house is working with many of the users, like Healthy Hearts, to
ensure their programs can continue. The gym and boardroom will remain
5. Upcoming Public Meetings
Wednesday, November 15th Open House for Windemere Phase 2 at the
Firehall (for information only)
Wednesday, November 22nd Open House for Loyalist Phase 8 at the
Firehall (for information only)
Monday, November 27th Statutory public meeting at Township Offices for
Windemere Phase 2
Monday, December 11th Statutory public meeting at Township Offices for
Loyalist Phase 8
6. Other Business
Having two different locations for Country Club Drive is causing confusion
for those unfamiliar with the community. Additional signage is to be
reviewed. Contractors are to be reminded to slow down for safety and in
order to reduce dust.
NEXT MEETING: December 11, 2017
abbey dawn being a no heavy trucks needs to be enforced,
Phase 9 is simply a cash grab. It’s cutting into the Golf Course and upping the density, affecting the aesthetic of the entire community. I do not advocate for this development, and peolple are quite right regarding the small condo sizes of Phase 8. They are suitable for MAYBE one person, not a couple and the semis will not attract those who value the nature of our community. There will be parking issues unless land is set aside for multi-vehicle families. One need only look at Cataraqui Woods in Kingston as an example – It has become and looks like a used car lot!!!
I see Kaitlin has improved their road side signage however several large signs at the entry of country club from hwy#33, Hwy #2, church street and on Country club by the circle have inaccurate pricing.As well the flags on the country club street sign are badly torn and have been for over a year. Are all these signs to be permanently removed?
The undeveloped lots in the townhouse area have become a dumping ground of all sorts of building material waste. Kaitlin should post No Dumping signs to stop this from occurring.
