Town Council approves one year extension to its Interim Control By-law that limits Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses

Thursday, November 3, 2016 – for immediate release

Town Council approves one year extension to its Interim Control By-law that limits Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses

Council voted unanimously at Planning and Development Council on November 1, 2016, to extend Interim Control By-law 2016-24 (ICB) that restricts the use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses for one additional year. The ICB was originally passed on February 1, 2016 and with a one-year extension, will now remain in effect up to and including January 31, 2018.

In the meeting, Mark H. Simeoni, director, Planning Services Department, updated Council on the status of the key planning studies underway and explained the town’s reasons for recommending an extension to the ICB.

The status of the key studies is outlined below:

Macaulay Shiomi Howson Ltd was hired as the lead consultant to undertake an Urban Structure Review. Preliminary work was reviewed at the Livable Oakville Sub-committee earlier this week. The draft of the study is expected in the spring of 2017 with public consultation, revisions if any, and implementation to follow as required.
PWC is completing a Land Use Economic and Impact Analysis study. The first draft of the study is expected to be complete in the spring of 2017 with public consultation, revisions if any, and implementation to follow as required.
Letourneau Heritage Consulting was recently engaged to complete the Phase 2 Cultural Heritage Landscapes assessment of the Glen Abbey Golf Course. The draft assessment is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017 with public consultation, revisions if any, and implementation to follow as required.

Section 38 of the Planning Act (Ont.) permits a municipality to pass an ICB for up to a year (with the right to extend the by-law for a further year) in order to complete a review or study of land use policies in the municipality.

Club Link, the owners of Glen Abbey, has appealed the town’s ICB to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). The hearing on this appeal is scheduled to begin on January 30, 2017 at Town Hall.

Review the February 1, 2016 and November 1, 2016 Council agendas and staff reports.

Town celebrates 25th Annual Earth Week Clean Up by recognizing volunteers

Town celebrates 25th Annual Earth Week Clean Up by recognizing volunteers

Volunteers who participated in Oakville’s 25th annual Earth Week Clean Up received special recognition from the Town of Oakville on Saturday, April 23, 2016.

At a celebration event hosted by the Parks and Open Space department, Mayor Rob Burton presented each volunteer site coordinator with a framed certificate of recognition and a pin for their ongoing efforts to keep Oakville beautiful.

“This event would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of the volunteers who participate year after year,” said Mayor Burton. “Thank you for taking pride in your community and for doing such an incredible job keeping Oakville clean and beautiful.”

More than 1,000 people participated in this year’s event with a record turnout at many of the 47 clean-up sites. Volunteers removed 4,600 kilograms of waste including 850 kilograms of recyclable metal.

The town is a long-time sponsor of the Earth Week Clean Up event organized by the Oakville Community Centre for Peace, Ecology and Human Rights (OCCPEHR). Stephen Dankowich, executive director of OCCPEHR was also recognized for his ongoing personal commitment to protecting the natural environment.

Following the clean-up volunteers, sponsors and organizers gathered at Town Hall to enjoy a pizza lunch generously donated by Rohit Girotra of Panago Pizza on Cornwall Road.

Along with sponsoring the Earth Week Clean up, the town also offers a Park Ambassador program that provides residents and businesses with an opportunity to help maintain the beauty of Oakville’s parks and trails. For more information visit the Park Ambassador page.

OREA’s Forms Guru Shares the Latest on Form #801, E-Signatures and Operating with Integrity 

This past fall it was my pleasure to participate in OREA’s EMERGE event tour to speak with REALTORS® about varied Standard Forms Updates, including Form #801, E-signatures and adding integrity to trading activity using Standard Forms & Clauses. Form #801 has garnered a lot of discussion and controversy. Members need to know about regulatory changes which can translate into essential changes in real estate activity, including the two regulatory changes resulting in the creation of Form #801: 

To not represent to anyone that an offer exists unless that offer is in writing; and
To retain a copy of all written offers or a summary document (such as Form #801) of all written offers.

Technology and e-signatures are now an integral part of the real estate landscape in Ontario. So OREA invited industry experts to EMERGE to talk about the benefits of this technology and what REALTORS® need to consider when they are choosing between the many options available. In my presentation, the minimum requirements according to the Electronic Commerce Act were discussed for members to keep in mind when choosing an e-signature provider. 

In this video you’ll get answers to many common questions about Form #801, e-signatures and integrity using forms. But don’t stop there – every month OREA will be releasing a new video featuring one of our EMERGE speakers. If you haven’t checked it out yet, last month’s video features Andrew Fogliatio discussing online lead funnels. Next month you’ll get to see the highlights from the consumer panel, which was by far the most talked about part of EMERGE. 

If you like what you see, be sure to attend this year’s EMERGE conference, running in six areas of the province between September 22 and November 17. The live events feature business ideas and technology tips from top experts in the field not available anywhere else. This is one of those memorable conferences with real benefits for your real estate business that you won’t want to miss.   

OREA members will receive further information about this year’s line up of speakers as well as how to register as it becomes available. In the mean time, check out our EMERGE landing page for key dates and more content from last year. On behalf of the team at OREA, we look forward to seeing you there!
