Special Village of Westport Council Meeting, July 26, 2022 – update

At the Special Council meeting held on July 26, Council decided to withdraw its zoning by-law amendment to increase lot coverage village-wide from 35% to 45%. Public meeting on Tuesday, August 2 will be cancelled.

Members of Council better understand the challenges of storm water management in the part of the Village that does not have modern storm water infrastructure and recognize the issue requires more planning and study. The zoning by-law amendment was put forward with the best of intentions, however it has been withdrawn and Council has asked staff for recommendations on what can be done to better manage storm water run off into the Lake.

Members of Council appreciate the residents who voiced concerns and suggestions over the past couple of weeks
