Township of Huron-Kinloss Public Open House to discuss Zoning By-Law

Property Owners and Interested Parties are invited to attend a

Public Open House

 to discuss the preparation of the new Township of Huron-Kinloss Zoning By-Law

Under Sections 26 and 34 of the Planning Act

The Township of Huron-Kinloss is conducting a comprehensive review of its zoning by-law to ensure it reflects the Township’s new Official Plan.  Zoning by-laws are legal documents that divide the Township into different land-use zones, specifying permitted uses (e.g. agricultural or residential) and required standards (e.g. building size and location).

A first draft of the zoning by-law was tabled at Council on August 14, 2017 to initiate the public consultation. The public drop-in session is intended to give the public an opportunity to review and ask questions about the first draft of the new zoning by-law.       

Saturday, September 9, 2017

10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Ripley Huron Community Centre, Auditorium

17 Queen Street, Ripley

Any person may attend the public drop-in session and make written and/or verbal representation either in support of, in opposition to, the above noted proposal.

Comments submitted to or prior to October 3, 2017 will be considered in the preparation of the final draft zoning by-law.

If you wish to be notified of any public meeting and/or the adoption of the new zoning by-law, you must make a written request and submit your name and contact information to the email address noted above.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make a written submission prior to approval/refusal of the new zoning by-law, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board, and may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal unless there are reasonable grounds in the opinion of the Board.

For more information and to review the draft zoning by-law please visit the Township’s website 2017 Zoning By-Law Review or attend the Township Office, 21 Queen Street, Ripley 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (Monday to Friday).

A Fire Safety Message from the Ripley-Huron Fire Department

Residential fires account for 73% of all fire-related fatalities in Canada. Accidental fires are preventable and, as an industry, we have taken—and continue to take—precautions to protect public safety. Post-fire inspections often reveal dated or disabled safety devices, like smoke alarms, exposing a hard truth those in the industry already know... the proper maintenance of safety devices is oft overlooked.
We all have a role to play in reducing the risk of fire at home and at work, which is why one of my guiding principles is to educate communities on fire safety by partnering with fire service professionals and distributors.

Smoke Alarm Location

The location of the smoke alarm is very important for fire prevention and residential safety. According to code, smoke alarms must be installed in each dwelling unit and in each sleeping area within a dwelling unit (according to NFPA [National Fire Protection Association in the U.S.], one-quarter of all home fires start in the bedroom). Hallways connected to bedrooms must also have an alarm on or near the ceiling. In addition to these specific areas—each storey—including the basement must have an alarm installed.

CO Alarms

On top of residential smoke alarms in the home, carbon monoxide alarms are also an important safety device for homeowners and landlords. In fact, CO poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in North America. As per the 2010 NBC, it is mandatory for all new homes to have a carbon monoxide detector installed. CO detectors are crucial in identifying a problem. Often referred to as the “silent killer”, CO is extremely dangerous as it has no odour, taste or colour.
It is recommended that detectors be installed in hallways and outside sleeping areas. To ensure whole home safety, It is suggested that you place CO alarms on every level. Provincial fire codes determine whether all homes (new and existing) require the device. Ontario requires all new and old homes with fuel-burning appliances, a fireplace or attached garage to be fitted with CO detectors.

Be Prepared, Not Scared
