Council Highlights provide a snapshot of public meetings. For the official record, please refer to the adopted minutes, which are posted once approved at the next month’s Regular Council Meeting. Consult this meeting's agenda to view presentations and files mentioned in the Council Highlights.  

A Public Hearing was held as the Town of Riverview is considering amendments to the Future Land Use Map and Zoning By-law.  

The proposed amendments (By-laws 300-33-6 and 300-7-14) are to redesignate the properties on Hillsborough Road bearing PIDs 05122759 (formerly 05009949) and 00642736 from CU – Community Use to C - Commercial, and to rezone said properties from OS – Open Space to SC – Suburban Commercial to permit a drive-thru restaurant and service station. Riverview Town Council is also considering an amendment to the Future Roads Map (Municipal Plan By-law 300-33-7) forming part of Municipal Development Plan By-Law 300-33.   

A Public Hearing was then held for the Stopping up and Closing of Highways – Mitton Road (By-Law 300-35-6). This road is essentially a driveway to a single residence. The Town is performing some upgrade work on the road this summer and will then transfer it to the owner of the residence. There were no written submissions or comments from the gallery.
