Peter Reynen, who lives above the site on Penetangore Row, said he has
problems with people parking in front of his property and said this
development will only make it worse.
Another neighbour, Bill Graham, said he has no problem with the new house, but he would like to see drainage improved on the road.
Chief building official Michele Barr clarified that that section of Goderich Street is a municipal road and the front porch of the new house will stick out further to the east than the existing cottage. The new house will also be about twice the size of the cottage.
"We should look at the parking situation down there for the summer especially," said deputy mayor Laura Haight. "It is tight down there and it's difficult to get through when cars are parked along Kincardine Avenue and Goderich Street."
Councillor Kenneth Craig asked why the names of the neighbours, whose letters of objection were included in the committee package, were blacked out with marker.
Stickney said because information is now being posted on the Internet, there is a problem with people's names and addresses being made public. "Council should have received the documents with the names not blacked out," he said.
The committee approved the rezoning and it was later approved by council.
