Council approves change of zoning for business

by David Meyer

MAPLETON TWP. - Council passed a bylaw here on June 28 that will permit the expansion of highway commercial zoning for a property in Dorking so its current use as a contractor’s yard meets the zoning rules.

The property already had highway commercial zoning with a site specific zone to allow trucks to be stored there. A new user sought permission for a contractor’s yard for cement forming, and there were no objections at a public meeting last month.

The land is Part of Lot 19 Concession 1 (Maryborough) and is about half an acre in size. It has a 2,400 square foot building on it.

The owner, Elmer Bowman, would also like some outside storage that might include lumber, which could require a tree buffer. Bowman had told council the land would be used only for storage and there would be no fabrication on the property.

Council gave three readings to the bylaw and it passed unanimously.
