Public Presentations by Kaitlin
16th May 2017 and 26th June 2017
On the afternoon of May 26th, Mr. Enzo Bertucci, Director, Land Development for Kaitlin and some representatives from their consulting group partners hosted an open house to present future plans for the community. This was followed up by a second meeting on the 26th June 2017 at which time a focus group was established.
Approximately 90 people from the community attended and gave their feedback to Mr Bertucci.
Kaitlin presented their priorities for the community.
- Firstly, they indicated that the present plan for Phase 8 was being revised with a stated goal of increasing the population density. The present plan, which has been submitted to the Township, calls for approximately 90 single homes on 50 to 55 feet wide lots. Kaitlin will be revising this to provide for 158 homes.
Kaitlin plan to achieve this higher density by constructing a mix of two story semi-detached homes, bungalows and town houses all with significantly reduced footprints. They will be building on approx 35 feet wide lots (for the two story semi-detached) and approx 45 feet wide lots (for the bungalows). The revised high density plan needs to be approved by the Township before they can proceed.
- The second priority is to complete the approved Phase 9 which would see a Cul-de-Sac extend perpendicular to Country Club Drive towards the swimming pool and parallel to the tenth green.
- Thirdly, a concept video graphic was shown of a proposed plan for two, 3 story condo buildings surrounded by seven blocks of townhouse condos. The three story blocks would contain approximately 70 condo units each unit being between 650 and 850 Sq Ft.
The video graphic also showed a 9000 Sq foot commercial area. This complex would be located on the south corner of Loyalist Boulevard and Country Road 7.
This seems to replace the “Low rise retirement residence with assisted living facilities and 10,000 sq ft retail development”, which is shown on all of the Kaitlin sales material.
- Finally, the townhouses on Country Club and Britannia were addressed. There are three blocks of townhouses 19, 20 and 21 containing 14 homes. These are planned to be completed by December 2017.
A Focus Group chaired by Mr. Enzo Bertucci has been formed to study feedback given as a result of the public meeting. The members are:-
