Holding zone removed from affordable housing proposal

Several items involving over 100 new housing units in North Bay are moving forward.   

One recommendation to remove a holding zone on a Brookes Street proposal, involving 41 units on part of the former MacDougall Public School site, was supported by council Monday night.  

Councillor Dave Mendicino says the results of three studies have come back. 

“There was an outstanding traffic study that needed to be done, noise and acoustic study and service capacity study.  (They) all came back with no concerns,” he says. “Nipissing District Housing Corporation board will then proceed with making decisions on how to develop this property for affordable housing units.”

Council also supported a pre-servicing agreement for another development off of Ski Club Road. 

Mendicino says it’ll help create 13 new residential lots and impact even more. 

“With this process, it’s going to tie into 18 existing lots of record and we know what the demand is for new development in the City of North Bay,” he says. “13 lots is actually 31 lots that will come into play over the course of the development process.” 

Also approved was a 12-unit plan of condominium on Golf Club Road while three items on the committee file were moved forward. 

One involves developing a two-storey apartment building with 24 residential units on the 400 block of Lakeshore Drive.   

Two others involve three residential lots each on Ross Drive, off Highway 17 East, by Trout Lake.

Full council still has to vote on those three items.
