Council considers development application for Frizzi Road

M.H. King Excavating Ltd.’s application to build a new office storage building is up for public input at Tuesday’s council meeting

Members of the public will have the opportunity to weigh in on a development permit application from M.H. King Excavating Ltd. to build a new shared office and storage building at 4023 Frizzi Road during Tuesday’s city council meeting.

There won’t be a formal public hearing, however, members of the public will be given the opportunity to speak about the application.

In a report to council, planner Hasib Nadvi noted the applicant is proposing an approximately 319.5 metre squared or or 3,439.22 square ft. building on an existing industrial site.

Nadvi said because the subject property is located in the River Valley Escarpment Geohazard Area, any property within 100 metres of that area requires a geotechnical hazard report from a geotechnical engineer.

As a result, a report from Geonorth Engineering Ltd. dated May 29, 2017, recommends a setback of 90 metres from the northwest corner of the property and 55 metres form the southeastern property corner.

The building’s proposed location will meet the report’s recommendations, Nadvi noted.

After hearing from the public, council will vote on the development permit.
