Big pro­ject in North Hat­ley

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier North Hat­ley

A pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion meet­ing was held in North Hat­ley on Mon­day night, be­fore the reg­u­lar monthly meet­ing, to dis­cuss changes to three im­por­tant by­laws. First drafts of the changes were adopted dur­ing July’s monthly meet­ing. In by-law 2013-568, the def­i­ni­tions of “Beach shed” “Guest­house” and “Hedge” will be added as well as new reg­u­la­tions for wind tur­bines. “We’re get­ting more restric­tive on wind tur­bines. The max­i­mum height will be 15 me­tres, in­clud­ing the blade,” ex­plained the town’s Gen­eral Man­ager, Leonard Castag­ner. By-law 2013-569 will see changes to the min­i­mum size of lots in dif­fer­ent zones, and by-law 2013570 deals with fences and com­mer­cial ter­races.

Dur­ing the reg­u­lar meet­ing, many res­i­dents had ques­tions about a ma­jor con­struc­tion pro­ject be­ing con­sid­ered in the heart of the vil­lage. The pro­ject would see the con­struc­tion of a fa­cil­ity that would con­sist of con­do­mini­ums, apart­ments and a se­nior’s res­i­dence, lo­cated in the area be­tween the down­town park­ing lot, Capel­ton Road and Main Street. With res­i­dents show­ing so much con­cern about the ma­jor pro­ject, mayor Michael Page called for an in­for­ma­tion meet­ing on the sub­ject to be held at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Au­gust 28th, at 7:00 pm.
