Peterborough Action for Tiny Homes to Hold a Discussion for Local Community

PETERBOROUGH, ON, Jan 25, 2024 — Peterborough Action for Tiny Homes (PATH)
will hold an ‘Open House’ for the immediate community on Feb. 8, between 4-8 pm, at Living Hope Church.

Representatives from EcoVue Consulting and from Engage will respond to concerns
from the neighbourhood in regard to land drainage, noise issues, pollution, impact on stormwater flows due to buildings and roads on the site, ground water quality, potential impact on archaeological elements, local ecological impacts, and provisions for emergency vehicles such as fire response, also questions about security provisions and site design.

City planner Christie Gilbertson, Ward Councillors Riel and Baldwin and neighbours
within 500m radius of PATH’s 385 Lansdowne St E location have been invited for
discussion about the planning act, zoning bylaws, how a planning application is
processed, the review process, decision criteria and opportunities for public input. This event is also welcome to extended community members for a time of constructive questions and sharing.

Representatives from other similar projects will be present to respond to questions
about cabin communities in Kitchener and Waterloo including Robert Raynor from
BetterStreets and Jeff Wilmer (attending virtually), former CAO of Kitchener and on the volunteer support staff of A Better Tent City.

The purpose of this event is to record concerns and considerations and bring ideas
forward to both PATH and the Planning Dept. for responses.

PATH Project Manager Keith Dalton notes, “The purpose of the Open House is to
gather questions and concerns from the neighbourhood. If PATH does not have an
immediate answer, we will be gathering the more frequently addressed topics of the
evening and will seek to engineer positive and suitable solutions.”
