Please support our community as we oppose the Application for Zoning By-Law Amendment that protects the Oak Ridges Moraine.

City of Kawartha Lakes file File No. : D06-17-003

Pt. Lot 7 & 8, Con. 6, Vacant Land on Gray Road, Janetville ON

We are in opposition to this application for re-zoning within the Oak Ridges Moraine. We have grave concerns with regard to maintaining the integrity of the Oak Ridges Moraine.

On November 1, 2001, the Minister announced a comprehensive strategy for the Oak Ridges Moraine which included introducing the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act, 2001 (which was passed on December 13, 2001 and received Royal Assent on December 14, 2001)

It is our understanding that the property was purchased will full awareness of the restrictions involved in the 2001 Conservation Act.

This property is situated by the Head Waters of the Pigeon River which contain very sensitive and rare Brook Trout. A stream flows directly from the property in question into the conservation land.

These headwaters are essential to the ecosystem. We wish to ensure that responsible management and the delicate balance of the oak Ridges Moraine is maintained and stays in place.

It has also been brought to our attention that the Conservation and Provincial authorities are in opposition to this re-zoning.

It is our hope that the city councillors we have placed our trust in will do the right thing.

Your support would be greatly appreciated in signing this petition.

We will be submitting our signatures during the meeting on Feb 8th at 1 pm in the Council Chambers City Hall, 26 Francis Street lindsay ON.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to make a difference!

Kelly and Mark Connor
