Public meeting for Beeton residential plans, request to flip commercial in Tottenham

Posted July 11, 2018

New Tecumseth is hosting a planning public meeting tonight for the presentation of two residential proposals in Beeton, as well an application to rezone commercial land in Tottenham to accomodate 55 townhouses in the Willow Glen subdivision.

Oxnard Beeton seeks to build 116 townhouse units configured across 18 residential blocks. The majority, 102, will be two-storey, and 14 will be three storey over a total site area of 3.88 hectares, immediately west of Dayfoot Street, along the abandoned rail line. Access to subject lands will occur through two (2) entrances along Main Street West with each unit being accessed by an internal road network. Two parkettes, and two dry stormwater management ponds are proposed along the western boundaries.

Oxnard is currently building semi-detached units in Kingsmere, Alliston, and had its request for DC deferral in that project, recently rejected by council.

The other application in Beeton on the former South Simcoe Railway property along Dayfoot Street and Danielle Gate, proposes two separate four-storey condiminium buildings - one with 48 units, 39 in the other -  a two-storey, 2,039 sq. ft clubhouse, parking for 192 vehicles, including 166 underground, and public/private trail.

Both planning proposals are flagged for several remaining and ongoing issues, including stormwater and drainage issues in Beeton, and the required above and below grade urbanization of Dayfoot Street. In the latter, underground parking is flagged as a concern because "the local water level is measured at 0.53 metres below grade."

In Tottenham, BG Properties has applied to redesignate  approximately 4.5 acres of  commercial land on the southside of Mill Street East by Turner Driver, Proctor Gate and Sharpe Cres, to urban residential to permit construction of 59 townhouses.

The meeting begins at 7 pm in the council chambers in Alliston.
