Issued at 1:45 pm on October 15, 2018

Please note that the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board has advised that “Due to significant rainfall received in the northern part of the basin, sharp increases in flows and levels on the main stem of the Ottawa River will occur over the coming week. Flows and levels are expected to remain above normal for this time of the year.”

In discussions with Michael Sarich of the Ottawa River Regulation Secretariat, Mr. Sarich advised that levels are not going to be high enough to be what they would consider flood levels, but that they would reach what they refer to as 'apprehension levels, which means they are a little more than the normal for the fall period.  Mr. Sarich further indicated that things have stabilized now and they are not expecting any more increases.  Mr. Sarich advised that they will be updating the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website later today (October 15, 2018).

The current levels on the website were posted on October 12, 2018 and indicated that the levels at Pembroke were 111.94 metres and the levels at Lake Coulonge at Fort-Coulonge were 106.28 metres.  To put these levels into context, the highest mean monthly water levels recorded this year so far were in May of 2018 for both these points on the Ottawa River and these were noted as 112.29 metres at Pembroke and 107.17 metres at Lake Coulonge at Fort-Coulonge.

For information on the Ottawa River water levels you should visit the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website at http://www.ottawariver.ca/river-levels-flows.php

The Township will continue to monitor the situation and advise accordingly.

If there ever is a situation where you feel you require assistance from the Township or wish to report any areas of concern related to potential flooding, please contact either Lauree Armstrong, Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) at 613-735-6291 ext. 203 or Mark Behm, Public Works Manager at 613-735-6291 ext. 216.

During the recent Ottawa River flood event (May 2017), a number of ratepayers have expressed concerns or had questions related to why water levels are higher or lower in particular sections of the Ottawa River and in particular between certain dams.  In order to assist with understanding why this occurs, OPG have indicated to Township Staff the following:

"When flows are high on the Ottawa River, the natural restriction in the river at Klock, located approximately 70 km upstream from Des Joachims GS, restricts water flow and backs water up to the Town of Mattawa. In order to help water move through this narrow section of river, the water level upstream of Des Joachims GS needs to be kept low. This low water level needs to be maintained until river flows have dropped considerably."

This is also further explained in a more general manner on the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website under  FAQ #5.  To read that and other frequently asked questions related to Ottawa River River Planning Regulation Board, click the following link http://www.ottawariver.ca/faq.php

<![CDATA[Reminder to Prepare Your Emergency Survival Kit]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/prepare-your-emergency-survival-kit/http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/prepare-your-emergency-survival-kit/Thu, 11 Oct 2018 12:08:34 -0700You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for at least the first 72 hours (3 days) of an Emergency.  Start by preparing an emergency kit and an emergency plan for your family.

PREPARE AN EMERGENCY KIT

A kit can easily be prepared by collecting certain items you already have around your house into one bag or container that is in a location that is easy to grab in case you need to leave your home in a hurry.  Many of the other items you can find inexpensively at a dollar store. Emergency kits make great gifts too so you can buy or find a special carry bag or plastic storage container and then head out to a dollar store or other store to find many of the items to fill the kit.

Remember your emergency survival kit should should be unique to your household and what your household needs are.  For example to you have a baby, a person with disabilities or special medical needs, do you have pets?  The Office of the Fire Marshall and Emergency Management Ontario (OFMEM) website contains useful tips and information on what to do to prepare for special situations such as persons with special needs or pets.   Also think about special items that would be important to you or provide comfort to your family members.  Items such as: a book; small toy; colouring book and crayons; a family photo or flash drive with family photos.

Your emergency survival kit should have everything you and your family would need to be safe and take care of yourselves for at least three days immediately following an emergency.

The following list is broken down into the essentials, items you may need to meet your family’s unique needs, and items to have ready in case you have to leave your home.

WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR SURVIVAL KIT

Essentials

  • Food (non-perishable and easy-to-prepare items, enough for 3 days) and a manual can opener
  • Bottled water (4 litres per person for each day)
  • Medication(s)
  • Flashlight
  • Radio (crank or battery-run)
  • Extra batteries
  • First-aid kit
  • Candles and matches/lighter
  • Hand sanitizer or moist towelettes
  • Important papers (identification, contact lists, copies of prescriptions, etc.)
  • Extra car keys and cash
  • Whistle (to attract attention, if needed)
  • Zip-lock bag (to keep things dry)
  • Garbage bags

Special Considerations

  • Items for babies and small children—diapers, formula, bottles, baby food, comfort items
  • Prescription medication
  • Medical supplies and equipment
  • Pet food and supplies
  • Any other items specific to your family’s needs

Extra Supplies for Evacuation

  • Clothes, shoes
  • Sleeping bags or blankets
  • Personal items (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, other toiletries)
  • Playing cards, travel games, other activities for children
  • Flash drive of family photos

Other Tips

  • Pack the contents of your kit in an easy-to-carry bag(s) or a case on wheels.
  • Store your kit in a place that is easy to reach, and ensure that everyone in your family knows where it is.
  • Your kit does not have to be built overnight. Spread your shopping over a few weeks. Purchase a few items every time you go to the store.
  • Your water supply is meant to cover what you would drink as well as what you might need for food preparation, hygiene and dishwashing.
  • Check and refresh your kit twice a year—when the clocks shift to/from daylight savings time is a good time. Check all expiry dates and replace food and water with a fresh supply. Check batteries and replace as needed.
  • Keep your cell phone or mobile device fully charged.
  • Keep the gas tank in your vehicle full.

A weather radio is also a useful investment and there are many inexpensive types that do the job and can keep you aware when severe weather may occur or is about to happen.

You can download a helpful checklist from this website or contact or visit the Township office for more information.  You can also make use of the information on the Province of Ontario's website at http://www.emergencymanagementontario.ca/english/beprepared/beprepared.html and the Government of Canada website at http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/index-eng.aspx

 

MAKE A PLAN

Do you know what do in a tornado, flood or winter storm? Do you have everything you need during a major emergency?

Emergency Management Ontario has an easy online tool that will help you create an Emergency Preparedness Action Plan for your family or household.  Click here to make a plan.   Your completed plan will:

  • List the specific steps you need to take to get prepared
  • Provide tips on hazards that might affect your community
  • Include information related to special needs you may have (for example, information for people with disabilities and pet owners)

Reach out to neighbours, family and friends who may be vulnerable or unable to support themselves during an emergency.  Get to know your neighbours who might need help in an emergency and make sure that you or someone on your street is partnered with them to make sure they are okay in an emergency.

You can't predict an emergency, but you can prepare for one. Take action today!

LOCK IT OR LOSE IT – UPPER OTTAWA VALLEY OPP RESULTS
 
 
(PEMBROKE, ON) – The Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding motorists and passengers to Lock it OR Lose it when it comes to their vehicles and valuables as part of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) Lock It OR Lose It campaign. 
 
On Sunday September 23, 2018 auxiliary OPP officers conducted checks of vehicles parked at several locations including the Petawawa Market Mall,  Petawawa Civic Centre, Petawawa Point, Pembroke’s West End Mall, Moncion’s Metro and at municipal parking lots in Pembroke including the marina/amphitheatre area and in the downtown core.  Of the 282 vehicles checked, 20 vehicles were found to be unlocked and insecure.  Several unlocked vehicles were observed to have valuables in plain view including building materials, groceries, keys and a wallet. 
During the Lock It OR Lose It campaign, police officers, auxiliary officers, and crime prevention personnel will examine parked vehicles to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. They place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. The notices also congratulate drivers who have secured their vehicle.  The Upper Ottawa Valley OPP will use Lock It OR Lose It notices throughout the year as part of our on-going crime prevention efforts.
 
Motorists and passengers are also urged not to keep personal documents such as vehicle ownership, liability pink slips, credit card invoices, or other documents containing personal information in their vehicles. Identity thieves are looking for such documents so they can assume identities, secure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export, and even take out a mortgage against victims’ properties without their knowledge.

OPP NOT SOLICITING FUNDS FOR ITS

COMMUNITY BEAR PROGRAM

 

(PEMBROKE, ON) – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is very proud to have a number of key partnerships in place throughout the Province of Ontario that benefit the communities policed by the OPP.

Recently, several OPP detachments, including the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP, received a number of inquiries from residents asking about police related organizations calling to solicit funds for teddy bears. 

While many OPP officers are involved in worthy charities on their personal time, the OPP is advising the public that it does not solicit funds from members of the public for its Community Bear Program or any other OPP program. 

Through sponsorship, the OPP officers give black and white teddy bears to children they encounter when faced with traumatic situations such as motor vehicle collisions.

The OPP is reminding people to verify the legitimacy of any organization that calls to solicit funds from the public.     

For information on how to spot a scam and make sure you do not become a victim, please go to www.opp.ca and find out more on Fraud Prevention.

For information on the OPP Community Bear Program, go to www.opp.ca and find out more on Community Bear Program.

The public is also reminded that any concerns regarding aggressive or inappropriate conduct by persons attempting to solicit funds in any fashion can also be reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by dialing 1-888-495-8501 or through their website at http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/index-eng.htm .

Highway 148 at Greenwood Road to the Quebec Border Detail Design
and Environmental Assessment Study (G. WP. 239-00-00)
 

The Project: The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) has retained Morrison Hershfield Limited (MH) to undertake the Detail Design and Environmental Assessment Study for the rehabilitation of Highway 148 at Greenwood Road to the Quebec Border in the County of Renfrew. 

This project generally includes: 

• Pavement rehabilitation;
• 2.5 m paved shoulders along the highway;
• New right-turn lane at Hazley Bay Drive;
• Drainage improvements; and
• Removal of the existing CPR overhead structure and replacement with a culvert.
 
In order to facilitate the replacement of the CPR Bridge, a short-term closure of Highway 148 between Hazley Bay Drive and Greenwood Road will be implemented. During this time traffic will be detoured along Hazley Bay Drive, Forest Park Road, Beachburg Road and Greenwood Road. Impacted property owners will be notified prior to the detour. Upon completion of construction, the Hazley Bay Drive and Forest Park Road connection will be closed with a gate to prevent vehicles from using the intersection. 
 
 
The Process: This project has been classified as a Group 'B' undertaking under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) with the opportunity for ublic input throughout. A Design and Construction Report (OCR) has been prepared and is now available for review and comment. The OCR provides background information about the study, presents the proposed improvements to Highway 148, describes construction staging and proposed mitigation, and provides an overview of the consultation that has occurred throughout the study. 
The OCR will be available for a 30-day public review starting August 30, 2018, and ending October 1, 2018. Please inform the Project Team members listed below if you have any comments or concerns with the project, or the findings of the OCR. The aspects of the project described in the OCR will be eligible to proceed to construction following the completion of the 30-day review period. The Project Team will respond to all comments generated during the 30- day public review; however there is no opportunity to request a Part II Order ('bump-up') from the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change.

The OCR will be available in hard copy for review at the following locations:

REMEMBER – SCHOOL BUSES ARE RETURNING

 

(PEMBROKE, ON) –  The Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reminds motorists that school buses are returning to area roads very soon, and in fact in some areas have returned.  Motorists should be aware of the expected increase in pedestrians, cyclists and school buses, and give themselves extra commuting time.  Students will no doubt be excited and may forget many of the safety rules required for safe travels.

 

In accordance with the Highway Traffic Act motorists encountering a stopped school bus that has its overhead red signal-lights flashing shall stop before reaching the bus and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the overhead red signal-lights have stopped flashing.  The minimum fine for failing to stop for a school bus is $400 and 6 demerit points.  This applies whether you are meeting or following a school bus, and includes multi-lane roads.  The only exception is when driving on a road with a median - traffic coming from the opposite direction is not required to stop.   

 

Drivers should also be prepared to yield to student pedestrians and cyclists.  Parents of students who will be walking or cycling to school are encouraged to speak with their children about the rules of the road that apply to them.

OPP APPEAL TO VICTIMS OF THEFT TO IDENTIFY SEIZED PROPERTY
Items Believed Stolen – Police Seek Owners
 
(PEMBROKE, ON) – On July 6, 2018 the Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) of the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) executed a search warrant at a residence in the City of Pembroke.  At the time a 31-year-old man from Pembroke was charged with several drug, weapons and property offences.
 
As a result of the search warrant, police seized a large quantity of property which is believed to have been stolen over the past two years.  At the time police made an appeal to previous victims of theft and break and enter to claim their stolen property.  The list of seized items still in police possession includes:
 
  • Various hand and power tools including routers, sanders, drills and gas trimmers
  • Saws including chainsaws, reciprocating saws, table and mitre saws
  • Electronics including TV’s, computers, tablets, iPads and cell phones
  • Jewellery including men’s and ladies rings, necklaces, and watches
  • Miscellaneous items including USB drives, old coins, binoculars, building supplies, cameras, knives, and shop vacs
 
In a continuing effort to locate the rightful owners of the significant quantity of remaining seized property, the CSCU is again appealing to the victims of property crime to identify their belongings by inviting them to attend the Pembroke OPP Detachment at 77 International Drive in the City of Pembroke on Tuesday and Wednesday August 14 and 15, 2018 between the hours of 9am and 4pm.  Appointments are not required.
 
Those attending will have a chance to identify their stolen belongings.  To assist in proving ownership of their items the victims are encouraged to provide proof of the following items associated to their property:
 
  •   Serial number and/or unique identifying markings on property
  •   Receipt and/or bill of sale
  •   Any other documentation or evidence supporting ownership of the property
 
Anyone seeking further information regarding the seized property and this two-day initiative are asked to contact the Community Street Crime Unit of the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP at 613-732-3332.

PEMBROKE KIN CLUB TO HOST ANNUAL KIDS & COPS FISHING DERBY
 
(PEMBROKE, ON)  - Upper Ottawa Valley OPP officers will be helping children learn the joys of fishing this summer during the annual Kin Club of Pembroke Kids, Cops and Canadian Tire Fishing Derby on Saturday August 11, 2018. 
 
Children will join local Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers to go fishing from 9 am until 12 noon at the Pembroke Marina Breakwater. Free to children 12 and under, the catch and release derby is hosted by the Pembroke Kin Club and will feature giveaways and prizes for the largest fish caught in various age categories.  Young anglers are asked to bring their own rods, reels and bait as well as an adult buddy.
 
This event is sponsored by Fishing Forever, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding worthwhile fishing, conservation and education projects. It is also supported by the Pembroke Kin Club, the Police Association of Ontario, Canadian Tire, and the Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) Branch 10 North. 
 
According to Bob Izumi, chair of Fishing Forever, there is nothing that puts a smile on a kid’s face faster than catching a fish. “That’s why I love to create opportunities for children and families to go fishing,” states Izumi. “Fishing is one of the very best ways for parents and other adults to establish productive and healthy relationships with children.”

FALL LARGE ITEM COLLECTION

August 27th, 2018 – Fall collection of large household goods will be happening soon for residents in the Town of Petawawa, City of Pembroke and Township of Laurentian Valley. Acceptable items must not be placed curbside earlier than Sunday, September 9th.
In order for material to be collected it must be properly separated into three different piles:

Large Appliances & Scrap Metal Items

  • BBQ’s, stainless steel sinks, bikes, exercise equipment, microwave ovens, stoves, etc. Small metal appliances (irons, kettles, toasters) should be placed in your yellow bin (remove and discard cords in garbage).
  • Fridges, freezers, air conditioners, water coolers, dehumidifiers. It assists collection when appliances with Freon are kept in a separate pile, as they are picked-up separately.

Acceptable Large Items

  • Artificial Christmas Trees (Remove from cardboard box)
  • Boxsprings and mattresses
  • Carpets and underlay
  • Furniture (desks, couches)
  • Plastic – Large, bulky household plastic items (children’s swimming pools, lawn chairs, outdoor toys)
  • Pool covers

Electronic Waste

  • TV’s, computers, radios, speakers
  • “During the Spring Large Item Collection, we continued to see residents place all items into one pile.” States David Unrau, Director of Public Works for the Town of Petawawa. “Scrap metal, electronics and large garbage items are picked up by separate trucks. If the driver can’t see it because it’s mixed together or underneath, it may get missed.”
  • Residents are reminded of the other set out requirements for Large Item Collection:
  • Small items and material placed out in cardboard boxes or garbage bags or containers WILL NOT be collected.
  • Construction and Renovation material such as toilets, wood, windows and doors, hazardous waste or tires WILL NOT be collected.
  • Acceptable materials must be manageable by two people and cannot exceed 80 lbs, 27 cubic feet or 6 feet long.

Mr. Unrau explains why small items in garbage bags and cardboard boxes cannot be placed out for Large Item Collection. “This collection is intended for larger household items like furniture and mattresses. They are ground up and used in landfill operations as approved cover material at the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre. Small items must be placed out with your regular garbage in a bag or container, not during large item collection.”
DO NOT place items out earlier than Sunday, September 9th. Collection will occur the week of September 10th on your regular collection day. Additional information on Municipal Waste Management programs is available on your collection schedule or at www.ovwrc.com.

PLANNING ACT, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, AS AMENDED
NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY
THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY
 
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed
By-Law No. 2018-07-036 on the 24th day of July, 2018, under Sections 34 and 36 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
 
PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-07)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to permit the construction of a coach house type of secondary dwelling unit on lands that are within 120 metres of Provincially Significant Wetland (PSW) and which are subject to the Natural Heritage Feature (NHF) Zone provisions.  The subject lot has an existing primary residential single detached dwelling and a coach house is proposed which is defined as “a secondary dwelling unit that is a separate dwelling unit detached from a primary dwelling unit and is located in its own building and on the same lot as the primary dwelling unit.”  In support of the application, an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was prepared by a qualified biologist to confirm that it would be possible to construct the coach house on lands that are within 120 metres of the PSW and have no negative impacts on the natural features or ecological functions for which the area is identified..
 
The effect of the amendment is to establish a Residential One-Exception Thirty-Six (R1-E36) zone with special provisions which permit a coach house to be constructed within the 120 metre buffer from the edge of a PSW.  The amendment would also rezone the subject lands from Residential One-Exception One (R1-E1) to Residential One-Exception Thirty-Six (R1-E36).
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 269 Hazley Bay Road, being Lot 16, Plan 499, within Part Lot 4, Concession 2, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
Oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting by members of the Public and were considered by Council prior to a decision being made. No written submissions were received from the public.  No written submissions were received from Public Bodies other than comments indicating no objections.  The consideration of the comments did not change the content of the by-law which was passed as originally proposed.)
 
AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing no later than 4:00 p.m. on the 14th day of August, 2018, a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley, which must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the prescribed fee of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order.  The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed LPAT appeal form.  If you wish to appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), a copy of an appeal form is available from the Tribunal website at www.elto.gov.on.ca or by contacting the Township.
 
A COPY of the amendment and any additional information relating to the Zoning By-law Amendment, is available for inspection during office hours at the Township Office.  Any questions related to the By-law should be directed to Lauree Armstrong, Township Planner.
 
Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).  A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group.  However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.
 
No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
 
Privacy Disclosure: As one of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open and accessible, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Township to such persons as the Township deems appropriate, including anyone requesting such information.  Please note that by submitting any of this information, you are providing the Township with your consent to use and disclose this information as part of the planning process.
 
DATED at the Township of Laurentian Valley this 25th day of July, 2018.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT
AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
 
TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to the requirements of Section 34(10.7) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended, the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley advises that an application for amendment to Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 08-04-391 of the Township of Laurentian Valley has been received and was deemed to be a complete application pursuant to the requirements of the Planning Act.  AND FURTHER, TAKE NOTICE that the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley will hold a PUBLIC MEETING ON TUESDAY, JULY 24th, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Township Municipal Office at 460 Witt Road, to consider the proposed amendment to Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 08-04-391 of the Township of Laurentian Valley.  The amendment has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.
 
PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-07)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to permit the construction of a coach house type of secondary dwelling unit on lands that are within 120 metres of Provincially Significant Wetland (PSW) and which are subject to the Natural Heritage Feature (NHF) Zone provisions. The subject lot has an existing primary residential single detached dwelling and a coach house is proposed which is defined as “a secondary dwelling unit that is a separate dwelling unit detached from a primary dwelling unit and is located in its own building and on the same lot as the primary dwelling unit.”  In support of the application, an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was prepared by a qualified biologist to confirm that it would be possible to construct the coach house on lands that are within 120 metres of the PSW and have no negative impacts on the natural features or ecological functions for which the area is identified.
 
The effect of the amendment is to establish a Residential One-Exception Thirty-Six (R1-E36) zone with special provisions which permit a coach house to be constructed within the 120 metre buffer from the edge of a PSW.  The amendment would also rezone the subject lands from Residential One-Exception One (R1-E1) to Residential One-Exception Thirty-Six (R1-E36).
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 269 Hazley Bay Road, being Lot 16, Plan 499, within Part Lot 4, Concession 2, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
COPIES of the proposed amendment, material provided under Section 34 (10.1) of the Planning Act and any additional information relating to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment (Application File No. Z-2018-07), are available for inspection during regular office hours at the Township Office.  Questions related to the application should be directed to Lauree Armstrong, Township Planner.

POLICE CHARGE MAN WITH SEVERAL OFFENCES AFTER THEFTS FROM VEHICLES
Lock It Or Lose It
 
(PEMBROKE, ON) – On July 2, 2018, at approximately 330am, members of the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a complaint of theft of credit cards from a vehicle on Moffat Street in the City of Pembroke.  The vehicle owner confronted the suspect who fled on foot.  Police searched the area for the suspect with negative results at that time. 
 
Later that same morning, at approximately 1030am, police responded after two more vehicles were entered in the same area.  The suspect fled on foot after again being confronted by a vehicle owner.  Within minutes police located and arrested  the suspect in the area of Mary and Murray Street.  He was found to be in possession of stolen property from the thefts.
 
As a result 24-year-old Chayton Gerald GEOFFREY, of no fixed address, has been charged with the following Criminal Code (CC) offences:
  • Theft of a credit card – two counts
  • Possession of a credit card obtained by crime – two counts
  • Fail to comply with probation – two counts
  • Theft under $5000 – two counts
  • Possession of property obtained by crime
  • Trespassing at night
 
He was held for a bail hearing and remains in custody until his next appearance at the Ontario Court of Justice in Pembroke on July 10, 2018
 
With summer here more would-be thieves may be out walking the streets looking for crimes of opportunity and an unlocked door or open window can be an invitation to thieves.  The OPP remind all vehicle owners to take the following steps to reduce their chances of victimization:
 
Roll up your vehicle windows
            Lock the vehicle and pocket the keys
Park in well-lit area if possible
         Never leave valuables in plain view
 
Locking up should also be applied to your home, garage, sheds and out-buildings.  Lock it or Lose it!

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) laid close to 213,000 speeding charges and more than 4,800 street racing charges against Ontario drivers last year (2017).
 
  As the OPP gears up for its Canada Day Long Weekend Aggressive Driving Campaign, officers will be watching for drivers who speed and engage in other forms of aggression. 
 
With 75 people dying in speed-related collisions on OPP-patrolled roads in 2017 (a five-year high), the OPP is revealing who their biggest speeding offenders were last year.    
 
  Among last year's speeding charges, close to 148,000 were issued to male drivers, with female drivers drawing over 65,000 charges. Below are the top three male/female age group offenders:  
 
 Speeding charges (males by age group):
25 to 34 years: 37,498 charges
35 to 44 years: 27,959 charges
45 to 54 years: 26,212 charges
 
Speeding charges (females by age group):
25 to 34 years: 17,433 charges
35 to 44 years: 12,817 charges
45 to 54 years: 11,541 charges
 
The youngest male age group (16 to 20 years) accounted for 5,939 charges while their female counterparts drew 2,699 charges.  
Among the street racing charges (for driving more than 50 kilometres per hour over the posted speed limit), males drew more than 4,100 charges, while close to 760 were issued to females. Below are the top three male/female age group offenders:      
 
Street racing charges (males by age group):
25 to 34 years: 1,382 charges
21 to 24 years:   968 charges
35 to 44 years:   622 charges 
 
Street racing charges (females by age group):
25 to 34 years: 260 charges
21 to 24 years: 155 charges
35 to 44 years: 130 charges
Among the youngest age group, 447 street racing charges went to 16 to 20 year-old males, compared to 91 charges laid against females in the same age group.
 
"When you speed, follow too closely, fail to yield right-of-way or engage in road rage behaviour, you are not just breaking the law. You are contributing to preventable road deaths on OPP-patrolled roads every year that are linked to these aggressive driving behaviors. We are urging all drivers to be mindful of this over the Canada Day Long Weekend and throughout the year."
 
- OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support.
Over and above ground patrols, the OPP will be deploying its fixed-winged aircraft and helicopter resources over the weekend, giving them a bird's eye view of OPP-patrolled roads, waterways and trails. The OPP is counting on Ontarians and tourists to do their part to help make it a zero fatality/injury Canada Day Long Weekend.

LONGTIME OPP AUXILIARY MEMBER CALLS IT A CAREER

                                                                                       

(PETAWAWA, ON) – Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Auxiliary Constable Ernie Lafrance will be stepping down at the end of June 2018 after nearly 16 years of dedicated service to the community as a member of the OPP’s Auxiliary Program.  After retiring from a 32 year career in education he enlisted in the OPP’s Auxiliary Program in November of 2002.  Aux. Cst. Lafrance quickly became a respected and very active member in the unit and at times was among the provincial leaders in volunteer hours dedicated to the Auxiliary Program as a result of his work at the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP Detachment.

In addition to accompanying regular uniform members on general patrol duties he regularly took part in All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and Motorized Snow Vehicle (MSV) patrols throughout the detachment area.  Aux. Cst. Lafrance was also trained in the Safeguard Program to assist victims of break and enter to better protect and safeguard their property.  He also took part in crime prevention initiatives such as the Lock It or Lose It campaigns to help reduce victimization amongst local citizens.  He proudly represented the OPP at countless community events including bicycle safety rodeos, school fun nights, parades, home shows and stuff the cruiser food drives.  He would also shuttle officers assigned to northern deployments to the airport, often in the early morning hours. 

Detachment Commander Stephan Neufeld stated, “Aux. Cst. Lafrance was an extremely dedicated and well-respected member of the OPP’s Auxiliary Program.  Ernie was known as the go-to guy and represented the OPP with pride throughout his lengthy career as an Auxiliary Officer.  His dedication to the OPP’s Auxiliary Program and the communities in our detachment area cannot be overstated.”

SUMMER VACATION AND CRIME PREVENTION

 

(PEMBROKE, ON) – With the arrival of summer many people will be travelling and planning summer vacations in the coming months.  It is important to take a few moments to think about crime prevention for your home and property before you go.  The Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to remind residents to consider the following crime prevention tips while away from their residence:
  • Do not announce your trip/vacation plans on social media.  Advertising your absence could be an invitation to would-be thieves.
  • Arrange for someone to maintain your home so it appears occupied – this includes cutting the grass, picking up mail, flyers and newspapers and placing garbage and recycling containers at the curb for normal pickup.
  • Ask trusted neighbours to keep an eye on your residence while you are away and leave your vacation address and phone numbers with them so you can be reached in an emergency.
  • Use timers for lights, television or radios.
  • Make sure all the locks on the windows and doors function properly and use them.
  • Leave the shades and blinds on doors and windows in a position that you normally would have them.
  • Ask a neighbour to park in your driveway so it will appear as if someone is home
  • Make sure smoke and burglary alarms are functioning properly and armed.
  • Consider taking valuables to a safety deposit box.
 
Your summer vacation should be an enjoyable, relaxing experience.  Following these safety tips will reduce the chance of being victimized and allow travellers to return home to a safe and secure residence.

(WHITEWATER REGION TWP, ON) – On June 22, 2018 at approximately 830pm members of the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police were dispatched to an area of rapids on the Ottawa River in Whitewater Region Township after a male swimmer failed to return to shore.  The missing 20-year-old man, from the Town of Petawawa, had entered the water earlier that evening with a second man from Petawawa.  Both men became caught in a section of rapids on the Ottawa River adjacent to Grants Settlement Road and were swept away.  The second male was eventually able to make his way to shore and summonsed for help after the first male was not accounted for.
 
Members of the OPP, Whitewater Region Fire Department, Garrison Petawawa Fire Department and Renfrew County Paramedics responded and were assisted in the initial search by local professionals in the whitewater rafting community.  The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) was notified and two helicopters with Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) technology were deployed to the area to assist in the search at the time but were met with negative results.   The search continued on Saturday and Sunday June 23 and 24, 2018 with the assistance of the OPP helicopter and OPP’s Underwater Search and Recovery Unit (USRU).
 
In addition to a ground search, the OPP’s USRU continued the search on June 25 and 26, 2018 with negative results.  Today on June 27, 2018, with the assistance of Hydro Quebec, the water levels on the river are being temporarily lowered to assist OPP’s USRU with their search efforts.  The OPP’s helicopter, members of OPP’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) and military members are also assisting with the search on June 27, 2018.

PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-05)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to permit the construction of a single detached residential dwelling closer to lands zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) than the general provisions of the Zoning By-law currently permit.  The subject lot is an existing 4046.86 square metre (1 acre) lot of record where it would not be possible to construct a dwelling and meet the minimum setback from EMR.

<![CDATA[County of Renfrew Seeks Farm Property Owners to Host 2020 International Plowing Match]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/5533.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/5533.htmlFri, 15 Jun 2018 7:20:53 -0700MEDIA RELEASE                                                                                                                    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 14th, 2018
 
 
COUNTY of RENFREW SEEKS FARM PROPERTY OWNERS to HOST
The International Plowing Match and Rural Expo May Return to the County in 2020

PEMBROKE, ON: The County of Renfrew has been requested by the Ontario Plowmen’s Association (OPA) to consider hosting a future International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM).

First launched in 1913 this annual outdoor agricultural and rural living festival contributes to agriculture, food, tourism and regional economic development. The IPM provides a unique showcase to the world of local agriculture and food production, lifestyle and culture, wood and building products, crafts and rural living products, and services and tourism experiences. Regions across Ontario have hosted the IPM and it brings both immediate and long-term economic and social benefits attracting visitors, promoting and selling local products, showcasing the best of Ontario agriculture, uniting communities in a major project and even attracting new residents and investment to an area.

Renfrew County last hosted the IPM in 1994 and it attracted close to 100,000 visitors and generated $500,000 in proceeds which were invested in the Renfrew County 911 system and the supporting civic addressing and communications equipment. “The Renfrew County IPM in 1994 was one of the most successful plowing matches ever put in place,” said Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet, chairman of the County Development and Property Committee. In recent years, IPMs have attracted an average of 80,000 visitors and they continue to provide a premier showcase opportunity for communities and regions and the entire agri-business sector.

To host the IPM 800+ acres of fields are required to host a tented city of displays, vendors and entertainment, competition plowing fields, a recreation vehicle park, and automobile parking area. Ideally 3 phase power is readily available to the site and the fields must be available for IPM set up from late July until the close of the show and site cleanup in late September in the year of IPM. There are various rates of compensation for property owners and ideally the crops planned for the IPM fields would produce a good cover for the various uses intended; ensuring land suitable for exhibits, displays, pedestrian and vehicle traffic and for the plowing competitions themselves.

Property owners interested in hosting the IPM are encouraged to collaborate with neighbours to assemble suitable acreage, if necessary. In order to start planning for an IPM potentially in 2020 we would need to identify a site as soon as possible and we are seeking responses from interested property owners by Friday, July 6, 2018.
 
For additional information and to inform the County of Renfrew of your interest in hosting the IPM, please contact David Wybou at Tel. 613.735.0091 ext. 432 or Email: dwybou@countyofrenfrew.on.ca.

<![CDATA[Silver Chain Challenge]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/silver-chair-challenge-8809.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/silver-chair-challenge-8809.htmlWed, 23 May 2018 1:14:57 -0700NEWS RELEASE
 
This year's Silver Chain Challenge encourages groups, schools, classes, and even families to compete.
 
PEMBROKE: The County of Renfrew is again joining with Mississippi Mills Bike Month, and the Ottawa Valley Cycling and Active Transportation Alliance (OVCATA) to get more people out walking and cycling.  Together, they are spearheading the Silver Chain Challenge, which started six years ago as a friendly competition between Renfrew County and Lanark County to promote healthier communities.
Participants compete online to see which County can log the most kilometres biked or walked over the month of June.
 
Individuals can register and record their daily activity online and the distances get totalled, with adjustment in recognition of population size. From June 1 through 30, residents can log their kilometres - whether walking or biking - by going to www.silverchainchallenge.ca.
 
This is the sixth year of the Challenge, which began as a Mississippi Bike Month initiative in Lanark County. In the past two years, Renfrew has won. This year there are numerous new features. Hastings and Prince Edward Counties are joining the competition. And, with a refreshed website, competitors can now form groups to participate.
Any kind of group can register, including schools, classes, seniors clubs, workplaces, families or municipal councils.
 
A real-time bar graph of kilometres clocked is displayed on the homepage of this website, showing how the counties measures up. There are also displays of group and township participation.
 
"We hope to inspire healthy competition and talk more about healthy, active communities where people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds move more, to build healthier communities, and enjoy healthier and happier lives," said Renfrew County Warden Jennifer Murphy.
 
This year, Challenge organizers are putting special emphasis on involving seniors, children and schools.
 
"The benefits are real," says OVCATA co-chair Ish Theilheimer. "They include improved mental and physical health and an engaged and active community."
 
The health units of all counties involved have become champions of the challenge. Together, they have organized a group called Eastern Ontario Active Transportation Network to coordinate and promote events like this.
 
OVCATA's work on the Challenge is supported, this year, by funding from Ontario's Ministry of Transportation and Senior's Ministry.
 
"It's wonderful to see Renfrew County so actively involved through the help of the Emergency Services department, with its emphasis on safety and health," Mr. Theilheimer said.
 
"We have backed the Silver Chain Challenge from the start, so it's great to have an even more active role in it this year," said Emergency Services director Mike Nolan. His department has been organizing planning meetings, has overseen the website renovations, and is contributing a summer student to help with the project. "It's a positive, effective way to help people in our community to be healthier."

PLANNING ACT, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, AS AMENDED
NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY
THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY
 
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed
By-Law No. 2018-03-010 on the 20th day of March, 2018, under Sections 34 and 36 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
 
PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-01)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to satisfy conditions of consent approval in County of Renfrew Application for Consent File No.s B60/17 and B61/17 by establishing the requirement for a routine geotechnical investigation to be conducted prior to the construction of a single detached dwelling on the retained lands.
 
The effect of the amendment is to rezone the lands that are the proposed retained lot resulting from the approval of Consent File No.s B60/17 and B61/17, from Rural-Exception One (RU-E1) to Rural-Exception One-holding (RU-E1-h).
 
The use of the holding symbol allows for the establishment of the principle of use for the subject lands subject to conditions being established by Council resolution that will need to be addressed prior to the removal of the holding symbol.  As the retained lot is bounded by the Muskrat River where there have been areas identified with a low factor of safety due to presence of clay soils, the geotechnical review is required. This is to determine where it is safest to construct a dwelling and any mitigation measures that should be applied to any development on that area of the property.  The condition for removal of the holding zone was established by Council resolution and requires the completion of a routine geotechnical investigation by a qualified professional to the satisfaction of the Township.
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located on Whispering Pines Crescent and Mud Lake Road (County Road No. 19), within Part Lot 11, Concession 1, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
No oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting.  Written submissions received by Public Bodies were considered by Council prior to a decision being made and did not change the content of the by-law as originally proposed.
 
AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing no later than 4:00 p.m. on TUESDAY, APRIL 10th, 2018, a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley, which must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the prescribed fee of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order.  The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed OMB appeal form.  If you wish to appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board, a copy of an appeal form is available from the OMB website at www.omb.gov.on.ca or by contacting the Township.  Please note: as of April 3, 2018, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) will be replaced by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), as a result of changes from Bill 139.
 
A COPY of the amendment and any additional information relating to the Zoning By-law Amendment, is available for inspection during office hours at the Township Office.  Any questions related to the By-law should be directed to Lauree Armstrong, Township Planner.
 
Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Ontario Municipal Board.  A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group.  However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.

PLANNING ACT, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, AS AMENDED
NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY
THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY
 
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed
By-Law No. 2018-03-012 on the 20th day of March, 2018, under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
 
PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-03)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to recognize an existing multi-residential building containing four dwelling units on a private well and septic system on an existing 3.57 hectare property and to remove the commercial zoning from the subject property.  There is currently no existing commercial use of the property and no commercial use is proposed.  It is noted that a portion of the property towards the rear lot line is zoned Environmental Protection (EP) recognizing an existing intermittent creek which is not proposed to be rezoned as part of this amendment.
 
The effect of the amendment is to rezone the subject lands from Highway Commercial (HC) and Rural (RU) to Residential Three-Exception Five (R3-E5), and to establish special provisions for a Residential Three-Exception Five (R3-E5) zone which limit the permitted uses to: a single detached dwelling; a two-unit dwelling; a three unit dwelling; or a four unit dwelling, and recognize the existing performance standards for the location of the existing residential building.
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are known municipally as 2477B B-Line Road, located at the intersection of B-Line Road and Provincial Highway 17, being Part 1 on Plan 49R-3938, and Part 1 on Plan 49R-5435, within Part Lot 30, Concession 10, in the geographic Township of Alice, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
No oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting.  Written submissions received by Public Bodies were considered by Council prior to a decision being made and did not change the content of the by-law as originally proposed.
 
AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing no later than 4:00 p.m. on TUESDAY, APRIL 10th, 2018, a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley, which must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the prescribed fee of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order.  The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed OMB appeal form.  If you wish to appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board, a copy of an appeal form is available from the OMB website at www.omb.gov.on.ca or by contacting the Township.  Please note: as of April 3, 2018, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) will be replaced by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), as a result of changes from Bill 139.
 
A COPY of the amendment and any additional information relating to the Zoning By-law Amendment, is available for inspection during office hours at the Township Office.  Any questions related to the By-law should be directed to Lauree Armstrong, Township Planner.
 
Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Ontario Municipal Board.  A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group.  However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.
 
No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Municipal Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
 
Privacy Disclosure: As one of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open and accessible, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Township to such persons as the Township deems appropriate, including anyone requesting such information.  Please note that by submitting any of this information, you are providing the Township with your consent to use and disclose this information as part of the planning process.

The municipal election in the Town of Laurentian Valley will take place on Monday, October 22, 2018.
 
This notice is intended to inform broadcasters and publishers of their new obligations under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 (the Act) if they broadcast or publish a third party advertisement during the upcoming municipal election.
 
For further information, visit the Government of Ontario’s website or contact the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.
 
Definition of a registered third party advertiser
Under the Act, a registered third party advertiser is an individual, corporation or trade union that has registered with the City Clerk of the municipality where they want to advertise.
 
Third party advertisers must register prior to incurring any expenses for the appearance of a third party advertisement, and must comply with requirements including filing a financial statement(s), spending and contribution limits. A list of registered third party advertisers will be available at www.lvtownship.ca.  A candidate in the election cannot direct a third party advertiser.
 
Definition of a third party advertisement
A third party advertisement is a message in any broadcast, print, electronic or other medium that has the purpose of promoting, supporting or opposing a candidate in the election, or a question on the ballot.
 
 
Third party advertisements must contain the following information:
  1. Name of the registered third party
  2. Municipality where the registered third party is registered
  3. Telephone number, mailing address or email address at which the registered third party may be contacted regarding the advertisement
 
Restricted campaign period
Broadcasters and publishers may only permit third party advertisements to appear between May 1, 2018 and October 22, 2018 (Election Day).
 
 
Legal obligations for broadcasters and publishers in the municipal election
The new requirements for broadcasters and publishers include:
 
  1. Mandatory information
 
A registered third party advertiser must provide the following information to the broadcaster or publisher in writing before the third party advertisement appears:
 
• Name of the registered third party
• Name of the business address and telephone number of the individual who deals with the broadcaster or publisher under the direction of the registered third party
• Municipality where the registered third party is registered
 
  1. Maintaining records
The broadcaster or publisher of a third party advertisement must maintain records for 4 years after the date the advertisement appears. These records must contain:
 
Mandatory information described in section 1 (above), as outlined under section 88.5 (2) of the Act
• A copy of the advertisement, or the means of reproducing it for inspection
• A statement of charge made for its appearance.
 
The public must be permitted to inspect the records during normal business hours.
  1. Charges and contributions
The broadcaster or publisher may not charge a third party advertiser more or less than their normal advertising rate. If less is charged, the difference is deemed to be a contribution to the third party advertiser. Providing free advertising is considered a contribution towards the third party advertiser, unless all third party advertisers are offered the same service.
 
  1. Broadcasters or publishers as registered third party advertisers
Broadcasters or publishers, who wish to conduct third party advertising, must register as a third party advertiser and follow the Act's requirements. A Third Party Advertisers' guide, published by the Government of Ontario, will be provided upon registration.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) has retained Morrison Hershfield (MH) to undertake the Detail Design and Environmental Assessment Study for the rehabilitation of Highway 148 at Greenwood Road to the Quebec Border in the County of Renfrew. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the Study and to invite your input. 

This project generally includes: 

• Pavement rehabilitation;
• 2.5 m paved shoulders along the highway;
• New right-turn lane at Hazley Bay Drive;
• Drainage improvements; and
• Removal of the existing CPR overhead structure and replacement with a culvert.
 
In order to facilitate the replacement of the CPR Bridge, a short-term closure of Highway 148 between Hazley Bay Drive and Greenwood Road will be implemented. During this time traffic will be detoured along Hazley Bay Drive, Forest Park Road, Beachburg Road and Greenwood Road. Impacted property owners will be notified prior to the detour. 
 
THE PROCESS
 
This project has been classified as a Group 'B' undertaking under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) with the opportunity for public input throughout. A Transportation Environmental Study Report for the Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment for the project was prepared by the Ministry and completed in February 2018. 

Upon completion of this study, a Design and Construction Report (DCR) will be prepared and made available for a 30-day public review period. A Notification of Submission will be published in the local newspapers and letter notification will be sent directly to you.

    Pets are part of our families. During an emergency situation, it is important to know how to keep our animal companions safe. Emergencies can happen at any time, so prepare today. Assemble a pet emergency kit and make arrangements for your pet in the event that you must evacuate.

    Pet Emergency Kits

    • Prepare an emergency kit for your pet. Be sure you have:
    • Food, potable water, bowls, paper towel and a can opener
    • Blanket and a small toy
    • Sturdy leash/harness
    • Cat litter/pan (if required) and plastic bags
    • Carrier for transporting your pet
    • Medications and medical records (including vaccinations)
    • Current photo of your pet in case your pet gets lost
    • Information on feeding schedules, medical or behavioral problems in case you must board your pet
    • Up-to-date ID tag with your phone number and the name/phone number of your veterinarian
    • Copy of licence (if required)
    • Muzzle (if required)

    Keep this kit in the same spot as your family emergency survival kit for easy retrieval. Pets need supplies, too.

    Animals get anxious during emergencies. If possible, keep your pet in a carrying cage with a familiar blanket, so your pet(s) feels as secure as possible. Do not leave your pet alone, with strangers or without a leash at any time. During an emergency, your pet may panic, behave in a distressed manner or even run away and end up lost. Or, because of the distressed state, your pet may bite someone. REMEMBER… during an emergency, you are still responsible for your pet.

     

    Pets And Evacuations

    If safety permits, take your pet with you! Pets should not be left behind during an evacuation, as they may be injured, lost or even killed as a result of the emergency. Remember to take your pet emergency kit with you when you evacuate.

    It is important to note that some evacuation centres may not accept pets, with the exception of service animals (e.g., guide-eye dogs). Please do research ahead of time to ensure that you are not separated from your animal:

    • Contact hotels and motels outside your immediate area and check their policy on accepting pets during an emergency.
    • Ask friends and relatives outside your immediate area if they could shelter your pets in an emergency.
    • Prepare a list of boarding facilities and veterinarians who could shelter animals in an emergency (include a 24-hour phone number).
    • Contact local animal shelters and ask if they provide shelter for pets in the event of an emergency. This should only be used as a last resort, as animal shelters have limited resources and will be very busy in an emergency.
    • Record this information on a sheet and keep it in your pet emergency kit. Review it regularly to ensure the information is accurate.

    You may not be at home when an evacuation order is issued. In advance of an emergency, ask a trusted neighbour to evacuate your pet if need be, and meet you in a prearranged location. This individual should have a key to your home, know where the pet emergency kit is located, be comfortable with your pet and, more importantly, know where your pet is likely to be.

     

    Returning Home

    • In the days following an evacuation, don’t let your pet go outside unattended. Familiar scents and landmarks may have changed and your pet may get easily confused or lost. If there has been damage to your property, be aware that there could be sharp materials, electrical wires or other hazards in and around you home. Inspect your property carefully before allowing your pet to enter.
    • Remember, the behaviour of your pet may be different after an emergency. Monitor your pet and contact your veterinarian if you are concerned.

    OPP WRAPS US FESTIVE RIDE CAMPAIGN

    (ORILLIA, ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) charged 587 drivers with impaired driving during its annual Festive Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) campaign (November 24, 2017 - January 2, 2018).

    An additional 366 drivers were issued a Warn Range Suspension and had their driver's licence suspended for having a blood alcohol concentration between .05 and .08. 

    By comparison, the OPP charged 623 impaired drivers and issued 407 Warn Range Suspensions during the 2016-2017 Festive RIDE campaign.

    The OPP remained highly focused on keeping roads safe over the holidays, reflecting on the 44 lives lost in alcohol/drug-related collisions on OPP-patrolled roads in 2017. Officers conducted more than 9,830 RIDE events throughout the province, surpassing the 7,343 RIDE events conducted over the previous season's campaign.

    Over the holidays, OPP Drug Recognition Evaluators (DRE) assisted with the tools and expertise to test for and detect drug impairment in drivers. Of the 587 drivers charged, 29 were charged with drug impairment.     

    While the OPP maintained a heightened focus on impaired drivers during the campaign, officers enforce impaired driving laws around the clock, 365 days a year. In 2017, the OPP charged 4,915 drivers with alcohol-impaired charges and 238 drivers with drug-impaired charges and issued 2,995 Warn Range Suspensions.

    The OPP is again reminding the public to call 9-1-1 if you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs. In doing so, you could be saving lives.

    WINTER VACATION AND CRIME PREVENTION

    (PEMBROKE, ON) – With the winter season upon us many people will be travelling for the holidays and planning sunny vacations to the south during the winter months.  It is important to take a few moments to think about crime prevention for your home and property before you go.  The Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to remind residents to consider the following crime prevention tips while away from their residence:
    • Do not announce your trip/vacation plans on social media.  Advertising your absence could be an invitation to would-be thieves.
    • Arrange for someone to maintain your home so it appears occupied – this includes shovelling the walkways and driveway, picking up mail, flyers and newspapers and placing garbage and recycling containers at the curb for normal pickup.
    • Ask trusted neighbours to keep an eye on your residence while you are away and leave your vacation address and phone numbers with them so you can be reached in an emergency.
    • Use timers for lights, television or radios.
    • Make sure all the locks on the windows and doors function properly and use them.
    • Leave the shades and blinds on doors and windows in a position that you normally would have them.
    • Ask a neighbour to park in your driveway so it will appear as if someone is home
    • Make sure smoke and burglary alarms are functioning properly and armed.
    • Consider taking valuables to a safety deposit box.
     
    Your vacation should be an enjoyable, relaxing experience.  Following these safety tips will reduce the chance of being victimized and allow travellers to return home to a safe and secure residence.

    LOCK IT OR LOSE IT – UPPER OTTAWA VALLEY OPP RESULTS 

    (PEMBROKE, ON) – The Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding motorists and passengers to Lock it OR Lose it when it comes to their vehicles and valuables as part of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) Lock It OR Lose It campaign.
     
    On Tuesday December 19, 2017 auxiliary OPP officers conducted a check of vehicles parked at the Pembroke Mall and Giant Tiger in the City of Pembroke.  Of the 157 vehicles checked 13 vehicles were found to be insecure including 11 unlocked vehicles and two vehicles with their windows down.  Officers observed several valuables in plain view inside the vehicles including a  wallet, purses, cell phones, parcels, gifts and prescription medication.
     
    During the Lock It OR Lose It campaign, police officers, auxiliary officers, and crime prevention personnel will examine parked vehicles to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. They place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. The notices also congratulate drivers who have secured their vehicle.  The Upper Ottawa Valley OPP will use Lock It OR Lose It notices throughout the year as part of our on-going crime prevention efforts.
     
    Motorists and passengers are also urged not to keep personal documents such as vehicle ownership, liability pink slips, credit card invoices, or other documents containing personal information in their vehicles. Identity thieves are looking for such documents so they can assume identities, secure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export, and even take out a mortgage against victims’ properties without their knowledge.

    The effect of the amendment is to establish a Rural-Exception Seventy-Two (RU-E72) zone with a special provision to permit a residential dwelling to be constructed with a minimum 58 metre setback from lands zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR), and to rezone the subject lands from Rural (RU) to Rural-Exception Seventy-Two-holding (RU-E72-h).  The holding zone will establish the principle of development for the property but will remain in place until the conditions for removal of the holding symbol as established by resolution of Council have been met.  The conditions would include the finalization of the consent process to create the severed lot and the entering into of an Agreement with the Township to be registered on title to advise future purchasers of the potential for impacts from future aggregate operations in the area including noise, dust and vibration.
     
    The lands affected by the Amendment are located on B-Line Road within Part Lot 23, Concession B, geographic Township of Alice, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
     
    EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
    No oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting.  Written submissions were received on the application prior to the public meeting with the effect being the addition of an additional clause to be added to the Agreement to be registered on title to the property being required as one of the conditions for removal of the holding symbol established by resolution of Council.  The clause requires the owner and future owners to be advised and to acknowledge that Council may approve a reciprocal reduction to the setback to 58 metres for a gravel pit from the proposed dwelling.
     
    AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing no later than 4:00 p.m. on WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 13th, 2017, a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley, which must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the prescribed fee of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order.  The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed OMB appeal form.  If you wish to appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board, a copy of an appeal form is available from the OMB website at www.omb.gov.on.ca or by contacting the Township.

    During the initiative, OPP officers will conduct patrol in truck tractors (transport trucks), giving them a better vantage point for spotting CMV drivers who are distracted or engaged in other dangerous behaviours behind the wheel.        
     
    The trucks are being used for the first time during Operation Safe Trucking, the latest OPP enforcement initiative to support the OPP CMV Mitigation Strategy. The strategy aims to reduce the number of CMV collisions on OPP-patrolled roads.  
     
    During the five-day blitz, OPP officers will be targeting CMV moving violations such as distracted, aggressive and impaired driving, speeding, following too closely, occupant restraint and hours of service violations. CMVs found with mechanical, load security or other safety issues will be subject to inspections and enforcement actions in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation.
     
    While the focus of the initiative is on transport trucks, officers will also be addressing dangerous behaviours on the part of all drivers.    
     
    QUOTES
    "Every year, collisions that involve commercial motor vehicles are in the thousands and they result in significant loss of life. So far this year, the OPP has responded to more than 6,200 transport truck-related collisions, with 87 people dying in 72 of those crashes. Adding truck tractors to our list of enforcement tools will enhance our officers' observation and investigative skills during Operation Safe Trucking and future initiatives that focus on Commercial Motor Vehicle safety.
    - Commissioner J.V.N. (Vince) HAWKES, Ontario Provincial Police
     
    "Road safety is a priority for the province, and that is why Operation Safe Trucking is so important. It will enhance OPP efforts to catch drivers violating the law and help prevent dangerous behaviour in the future. Safe driving is a shared responsibility."
    - Marie-France Lalonde, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services
     
    DID YOU KNOW?
    Driver inattention leads the list of primary causes in CMV-involved collisions, with close to 27 percent of the crashes being attributed to this driving behaviour.

    Ontario Provincial Police Recognizes Victims of Gender-Based Violence

     National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

     
    (ORILLIA, ON) - A candlelight vigil was held today at the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Headquarters, paying tribute to the 14 women who were murdered at École Polytechnique de Montreal, as well as each and every woman in Ontario whose lives have been harmed or lost to gender-based violence.
     
    Attendees heard from guest speaker Priscilla de Villiers. De Villiers is the co-founder and executive director of the Victim Justice Network (VJN) where her work has had a pivotal role in raising public awareness, sharing accurate information and promoting trauma-informed research and resources for victims of crime in Canada.
     
    The OPP is committed to working with various community partners and victim support agencies, such as Ontario Victim Services. These services provide victims with short-term immediate counselling, emergency expenses, transportation, accommodations and other supports. 
     
    In August of this year, the OPP released a Victim Response Support Strategy that outlines the actions the OPP is taking to improve the response to and support for victims. This includes providing more resources and training to OPP investigators and creating new roles and functions to strengthen victim support. 
     
    Gender based violence facts:
     
    • Women are at a 20 per cent higher risk of violent victimization than men when all other risk factors are taken into account.*
    • Young women between the ages of 15 and 24 experience the highest rates of violence.*
    • Indigenous women are more than three times as likely to report being a victim of spousal violence as non-Indigenous women.*
    • Women living in the territories are victimized at a rate eight times higher than those living in the provinces.*

    (PEMBROKE, ON) – On Saturday December 2, 2017 the Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario
    Provincial Police (OPP) Auxiliary Unit held their 10th annual “Stuff a Cruiser” event to collect funds, food and toys for those in need.  Auxiliary officers with police cruisers were stationed at Giant Tiger, Walmart, Moncion’s Metro, No Frills, and the Independent Grocers in Petawawa.  With the community’s support and generosity the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP Auxiliary Unit were able to raise over $3,500 in cash and approximately $10,000 in food and toy donations.  All donations went directly to the local Pembroke branch of the Salvation Army, St. Joseph’s Food Bank in Pembroke and the Petawawa Pantry food bank in Petawawa.
     
    Upper Ottawa Valley OPP Detachment Commander Stephan Neufeld would like to thank the OPP Auxiliary members for their initiative and their efforts towards contributing to the well-being of those in need in our community.  Inspector Neufeld would also like to thank the various businesses that assisted the Auxiliary Unit in this endeavor and the public for their overwhelming support and generosity.
     
    Auxiliary OPP members would like to thank the businesses who allowed them to position Auxiliary officers and police cruisers outside their businesses to accept donations, as well as  Discount Car and Truck Rentals for donating the use of a cube van to transport all the toys and food.  Without this support the event could not take place.  Thank you for helping us “Stuff a Cruiser”!

    LOCK IT OR LOSE IT – UPPER OTTAWA VALLEY OPP RESULTS
    30 vehicles found insecure
     
    (PEMBROKE, ON) – The Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding motorists and passengers to Lock it OR Lose it when it comes to their vehicles and valuables as part of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) Lock It OR Lose It campaign. 
     
    On December 01, 2017 auxiliary OPP officers conducted checks of vehicles parked at several locations including the Pembroke Mall, Petawawa Market Mall and Pembroke’s West End Mall.  Of the 270 vehicles checked 30 vehicles were found to be insecure including 29 unlocked vehicles and one vehicle with the window down.  Valuables, including a wallet, were observed to be in plain view in several of the vehicles checked.     
     
    During the Lock It OR Lose It campaign, police officers, auxiliary officers, and crime prevention personnel will examine parked vehicles to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. They place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. The notices also congratulate drivers who have secured their vehicle.  The Upper Ottawa Valley OPP will use Lock It OR Lose It notices throughout the year as part of our on-going crime prevention efforts.
     
    Motorists and passengers are also urged not to keep personal documents such as vehicle ownership, liability pink slips, credit card invoices, or other documents containing personal information in their vehicles. Identity thieves are looking for such documents so they can assume identities, secure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export, and even take out a mortgage against victims’ properties without their knowledge.

    November 29, 2017
     
    PEMBROKE - Retail food offerings at the Pembroke Regional Hospital have become more enticing with the introduction of a fresh salad bar, new beverages, and oatmeal/yogurt toppings for breakfast, among other things; all part of achieving Silver status in the Healthy Foods in Champlain Hospitals program.
     
    “As a health care facility, it’s important that we lead the way in providing healthy nutrition options where food is sold as well as the information required for people to be able to make informed decisions when it comes to the food that they are eating,” said Sabine Mersmann, Vice-President of Patient Services – Seniors and Community Care.
     
    “While making healthy eating the easy choice is not without its challenges, the behind-the-scenes work that was required in order to meet the Silver level criteria provided both the hospital and the PRH Auxiliary with opportunities to make positive changes and modernize retail food selections,” Ms. Mersmann said, adding that the hospital was awarded Silver status in early November following a successful audit by representatives of the Healthy Foods in Champlain Hospitals program.
     
    In a congratulatory letter from Dr. Andrew Pipe, Chair of the Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network, it was noted that PRH is now among a small but growing number of hospitals to reach this impressive milestone in our region.
     
    “Reaching the Silver benchmark is a clear reflection of PRH’s commitment to investing in the long-term health of staff, physicians, volunteers, and the hospital community at large,” said Dr. Pipe, acknowledging the efforts of Dietary Manager Judy Zilney, Auxiliary President Diana Gagne, and Pat Bennett, purchaser for The Sunshine Gift Shop and The Mural Café.  
     
    “The Silver level builds on the tangible changes made at Bronze and includes progressive standards such as expanding the provision of calorie and sodium information at point-of-purchase, reducing processed meats, and phasing out sugary beverages. Sites are also introducing new and delicious meals and snacks which emphasize whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds - mainstays of healthy eating,” he said.
     
    At PRH, some of the other healthy yet delicious additions to the menus in The Lunch Box and Mural Café have included fresh fruit grab and go cups, flavoured cottage cheese portions, new beverages, veggie omelettes at breakfast, flatbreads and different vegetarian options at lunch.
     
    In The Sunshine Gift Shop healthier snack options have been introduced.
     
    “Our buyer, Pat Bennett, has worked very hard to research items which are not only appealing to our customers, but also meet the Silver criteria and are easy to source,” said PRH Auxiliary President Diana Gagne.
    “Some of the new items such as the flavoured cottage cheese and fresh fruit have been selling well and we are very pleased to be part of the success of this program, even though we recognize that change is never easy. Being able to offer healthier choices through our retail outlets and being a leader in this respect is something our members are proud of,” Ms. Gagne said.
     
    Each level of the Healthy Foods in Champlain Hospitals program comes with a set of progressively-phased nutrition standards developed by public health and hospital dietitians. With funding from the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) and implementation support from the Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network, hospitals have worked diligently and creatively to adjust their retail food offerings since the program was launched three years ago. To date, all 20 Champlain-area hospitals including PRH have voluntarily signed on to the program.  
     
    PRH Dietary Manager Judy Zilney acknowledged the engagement and buy-in by the hospital’s Dietary staff, vendors and the Auxiliary and noted that, going forward, her staff are excited to introduce more varieties of healthy menu items and said they welcome food suggestions which could be introduced so long as they meet the Silver level criteria.

Floods are typically caused by seasonal melting snow, ice jams, heavy spring rains and summer thunderstorms. Flash flooding is often caused by violent rain storms or breaking dams, and usually occurs with little or no advance warning. When you are building your family emergency plan review and discuss the safety tips related to flooding with your entire household to make sure everyone understands what to do.

    Flood Recovery Measures-Renfrew County

    With the outside temperatures warming up and the holiday weekend approaching, the Renfrew County and District Health Unit would like to advise all residents affected by the recent flooding to take the following precautions:

    • Continue to stay out of flood waters if at all possible to avoid exposure to potentially high levels of harmful bacteria. Recreational water use in lakes and rivers that were heavily flooded should be avoided until water levels return to normal. Be on the lookout for floating debris.
    • Use personal protection during any flood clean-up activities. Wear rubber gloves and other protective clothing including the use of an N95 mask when cleaning up indoors to avoid breathing in potentially harmful airborne contaminants such as mold.
    • Wash your hands with soap and clean water before handling food, after participating in flood clean-up activities and after handling articles contaminated with flood water.
    • Do not eat any foods that have been exposed to flood waters. Canned goods and sealed beverages may be used if these containers can be thoroughly cleaned and dried.
    • Perishable foods in refrigerators should be discarded if the power has been out for more than 4 hours.
    • Frozen foods may be re-frozen if ice crystals are still present and the food was not exposed to flood waters.
    • Contents of sand bags may be contaminated and should not be used on beaches, gardens and sandboxes. Keep sand away from wells and waterways. Check with your local municipal office for more information regarding disposal of sand bags.
    • For more information regarding drinking water safety and testing, septic system concerns and general clean-up precautions please visit www.rcdhu.com

    The Health Unit has begun surface water sampling at affected lakes and rivers as well as at our established public beaches in anticipation of the beaches being opened for the season. Status reports will be posted on the Health Unit website as they become available.

    What is an Official Plan?

    An official plan describes council's policies on how land within the Township should be used. It is prepared with input from the public/ members of the community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of your community, and addresses the requirements of the Planning Act and the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS).

    An official plan deals mainly with issues such as:

    • where new housing, business, industry, offices and shops will be located
    • what services like roads, watermains, sewers, parks and schools will be needed
    • when, and in what order, parts of your community will grow
    • where resource areas such as farming, gravel pits & quarries and forestry are located and are to be protected
    • identifying areas of hazard lands such as flood plains, unstable soils or slopes, and contaminated sites
    •  where natural features such as wetlands, lakes and rivers are located.

    The Official Plan:

    • lets the public know what the municipality's general land use planning policies are
    • makes sure that growth is coordinated and meets the community’s needs
    • helps all members of the community understand how their land may be used now and in the future
    • helps decide where roads, watermains, sewers, waste disposal, parks and other services will be built
    • provides a framework for establishing municipal zoning by-laws to set local regulations and standards, like the size of lots and height of buildings
    • provides a way to evaluate and settle conflicting land uses while meeting local, regional and provincial interests
    • shows council's commitment to the future growth of your community.

     A copy of the Official Plan text and map schedules are available for viewing or download from this website.  The documents can also be viewed at the Township Office.  Please note, there have been some amendments to the Official Plan which may not have been consolidated with the document available on the website.  For questions related to the Official Plan you may also contact the Township Planner at 613-735-6291.

    PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File # Z-2017-06)

    The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to satisfy conditions of approval for County of Renfrew Application for Consent File No. B99/16. The proposed severed lot is occupied by an existing dwelling that is surplus to the needs of the owner who is a farmer with additional lands in the area. As the area of the farm property which is occupied by the existing dwelling is zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) an amendment is required to rezone the area of the severed lot to recognize the location of the existing dwelling and to identify that those lands are not suitable for extraction. The retained lot is required to be rezoned to prohibit residential uses on the agricultural lands and to prohibit the existing structures which are used for equipment storage from being used for livestock or manure storage in the future due to their proximity to the surplus farm dwelling.

    The effect of the amendment is to establish an Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two (A-E22) zone to prohibit residential uses and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently zoned Agriculture (A) to Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two-holding (A-E22-h). The effect of the amendment is to also establish an Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three (EMR-E3) zone to prohibit the use of the existing structures on the retained for Livestock or Manure Storage and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) to Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three-holding (EMR-E3-h) . The effect of the amendment is also to establish a Rural Residential-Exception Eleven (RR-E11) zone with special provisions to recognize the existing dwelling and establish a reduced setback for a dwelling from lands zoned Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) and to rezone the severed lot from Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) to Rural Residential-Exception Eleven-holding (RR-E11-h).

    All of the subject lands are being rezoned to a holding zone where the principle of development would be established by this Amendment but the holding symbol would remain in place until the conditions for removal of the holding symbol as established by resolution of Council are met, including the entering into of a Development Agreement with the Township to provide notice related to the agriculture and potential aggregate uses in the area and to reinforce the prohibition on the use of the existing structures on the retained for livestock or manure storage.

    The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 23 Mud Lake Road (County Road No.19) within Part Lots 4 and 5, Concession 1, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

    PLANNING ACT, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, AS AMENDED

    NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY

    THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY

    TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-Law No. 2017-06-027 on the 20th day of June, 2017 under Sections 34 and 35.1(1) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.

    PURPOSE, EFFECT and LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (File No. Z-2016-11)

    The following provides an overall summary of what is proposed.

    Why is there a Policy Change for Secondary Dwelling Units?

    Municipalities are required to put policies in place to permit secondary dwelling units which are intended to help implement the Province’s long-term affordable housing strategy.

    What are Secondary Dwelling Units?

    A Secondary Dwelling Unit is a self-contained residential dwelling unit in which food preparation, eating, living, sleeping and sanitary facilities are provided for the exclusive use of the occupants of the dwelling unit, which can be located within a house, within an accessory structure (i.e. above a garage) or as a second dwelling separate from the main house which will be referred to as a coach house in the planning documents. Secondary Dwelling Units may also be known as basement/accessory apartments, two-unit housing or granny flats but for clarity the specific definitions in the By-law should be referred to.

    Where do the new policies apply?
    The proposed Amendments apply throughout the Township of Laurentian Valley and therefore no Key Map is attached.

    What will the new policies do?

    Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted in most single detached, semi-detached and townhouse/rowhouse dwellings, subject to meeting certain zoning requirements. Secondary Dwelling Units must still meet all Building Code, Fire Code and Property Standard regulations. The Amendment to the Comprehensive Zoning By-law Amendment establishes more detailed specific requirements. A corresponding Official Plan Amendment (OPA No. 12 - File O-2016-02) has also been adopted by Council and submitted to the County of Renfrew for Approval to establish broader policies outlining the more general principles around where and how Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted. This corresponding Zoning By-law Amendment will become effective with the County’s Approval of OPA No. 12. A corresponding Registration By-law 2017-06-029 has also been passed to assist the Township in making sure these units are safe, legal and liveable and comply with the Ontario Building Code, Fire Code, etc.

    Under the new policies:

    Only one Secondary Dwelling unit is permitted for each permitted primary residential dwelling type.

    Secondary Dwelling Units are permitted either: within a single detached, semi-detached or row/townhouse dwelling; or as a second dwelling unit on the same property but in its own detached building (which will be referred to as a coach house) or as part of another type of detached accessory building (i.e. above a garage).

    There must be adequate servicing available which must be demonstrated by a supporting study for lots on private services that are less than 0.8 hectares (2 acres).

    There must be one parking space for the second unit, in addition to parking required for the primary unit. This may be a tandem parking space.

    Secondary Dwelling Units are not permitted on lots where residential uses are not a permitted use in the zoning for the property or within lodging houses or group homes or on hazard lands.

    No severances shall be permitted for new lots to separate the Secondary Dwelling Unit from the Primary Dwelling.

    Specific definitions are established for the Primary Dwelling Unit, Secondary Dwelling Unit and Coach Houses (which are a specific type of secondary dwelling unit).

    The full provisions are as detailed in the draft Amendments available from the Township Office or the Township website at www.lvtownship.ca

    THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY

     

    TAKE NOTICE that Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-law No. 2017-06-027, thereby adopting Official Plan Amendment No.11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley on the 20th  day of June, 2017, in accordance with Sections 16.(3), 17 and 21 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.

     

    PURPOSE & EFFECT OF OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT N0.12 (OPA NO. 12) • File No 0-2016-02

    The following provides an overall summary of the Purpose, Effect and Location of Official Plan Amendment (OPA No. 12)- File No. 0 -2016-02.

    Why is there a Policy Change for Secondary Dwelling Units?

    Municipalities are required to put policies in place to permit secondary dwelling units which are intended to help implement the Province's long-term affordable housing strategy.

    What are Secondary Dwelling Units?

    A Secondary Dwelling Unit is a self-contained residential dwelling unit in which food preparation, eating, living, sleeping and sanitary facilities are provided for the exclusive use of the occupants of the dwelling unit, which can be located within a house, within an accessory structure (i.e. above a garage) or as a second dwelling separate from the main house which will be referred to as a coach house in the planning documents. Secondary Dwelling Units may also be known as basement/accessory apartments, two-unit housing or granny flats but for clarity the specific definitions in the By-law should be referred to.

    Where do the new policies apply?

    The proposed Amendment applies throughout the Township of Laurentian Valley. General Official Plan policies will be established which if met will allow a Secondary Dwelling Unit to be permitted without the need for an Amendment to the Official Plan.

    What will the new policies do?

    Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted in most single detached, semi-detached and townhouse/rowhouse dwellings, subject to certain requirements. Secondary Dwelling Units must still meet all Building Code, Fire Code and Property Standard regulations. The effect of the Official Plan Amendment is to establish broader policies outlining the principles around where and how Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted with the effect of the Corresponding Zoning By-law Amendment By-law No. 2017-06-028 (File Z2016-11) being to establish the more detailed specific requirements. A corresponding Registration By-law 2017-06-029 has also been passed to assist the Township in making sure these units are safe, legal and liveable and comply with the Ontario Building Code, Fire Code, etc.

    Under the new policies:

    • Only one Secondary Dwelling unit is permitted for each permitted primary residential dwelling type.

    • Secondary Dwelling Units are permitted either: within a single detached, semi-detached or row/townhouse dwelling; or as a second dwelling unit on the same property but in its own detached building (which will be referred to as a coach house) or as part of another type of detached accessory building (i.e. above a garage).

    • There must be adequate servicing available which must be demonstrated by a supporting study for lots on private services that are less than 0.8 hectares (2 acres).

    • Secondary Dwelling Units are not permitted on lots where residential uses are not a permitted or on hazard lands.

    • No severances shall be permitted for new lots to separate the Secondary Dwelling Unit from the Primary Dwelling.

    • The full provisions are as detailed in the proposed amendments available from the Township Office or the Township website at www.lvtownship.ca

    LOCATION OF AMENDMENT

    No Key Map is attached as OPA No. 12 (File No. 0 -2016-02) affects all lands in the Township of Laurentian Valley.

    There is a heightened risk of electric shock when water makes contact with electrical systems that could seriously injure or kill you. Follow these electrical safety steps; it could save your life, or the lives of first responders and utility personnel working in the area.

    Flooding has occurred
     1. Do not enter your basement if you know or suspect water has risen above the level of electrical outlets, baseboard heaters, furnace or is near your electrical panel. Electricity can move through water or wet flooring and cause a severe electrical shock.

    2. In the event that flood water has risen above outlets, baseboard heaters or your furnace, covers power cords, or is near the electrical panel, contact your local electric utility immediately and arrange for them to disconnect power to your home.

    3. Watch out for downed powerlines in flood-affected areas. If you see one, stay back 10 metres or the length of a school bus and call 9-1-1 and your local electric utility to report it.

    Evacuation due to flooding

    If you need to leave your home because flooding is imminent and there is no floodwater in your basement:

    1. Move electrical appliances and devices out of your home or to an area in the house above the expected level of flood water. Do not attempt to use these products if they have been in contact with flood water.

    2. Watch out for downed powerlines in flood-affected areas. If you see one, stay back 10 metres or the length of a school bus and call 9-1-1 and your local electric utility to report it.

    Returning home after a flood

    If you have water contact or damage to your electrical system:

    1. If water in your basement has risen above the electrical outlets, baseboard heaters, furnace or electrical panel, DO NOT enter the basement until the power has been disconnected by the local electric utility.

    2. If your electrical system has been affected, your utility may not be able to restore power to your property until damage has been assessed and necessary repairs have been made.

    3. Hire a Licensed Electrical Contractor to evaluate your home’s electrical system to determine if it is safe to have the local electric utility restore power to your home.

    • The contractor will file for a permit with the ESA so there is a record of the work;
    • When the contractor completes the work, the contractor will notify ESA and the ESA Inspector will confirm work has been done safely and power can be reconnected;
    • ESA will inform the utility that it is safe to reconnect;
    • The utility will reconnect when it is able to do so.
    • Ask the contractor for a copy of the ESA Certificate of Inspection for your records and insurance.

    <![CDATA[Cleaning Up After a Flood]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/flooding-information/cleaning-up-after-a-flood-2092.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/flooding-information/cleaning-up-after-a-flood-2092.htmlTue, 23 May 2017 10:23:01 -0700Cleaning Up After a Flood

    After your home has been flooded it is important to clean up as soon as possible to protect your health and prevent further damage to your home and belongings. Residents who have been evacuated should not return home after a flood until cleanup is finished and a supply of safe water and proper disposal of human waste and garbage has been arranged.

    What are the health hazards after a flood?

    When you arrive home, no part of a flooded installation can be assumed safe, not even the main breaker for the power supply. Before electrical equipment is tested or worked on, all power should be disconnected at the service panel with the main switch being left in the "off" position until work has been completed. In the event that flood water has risen above outlets, covers power cords, or is near the service panel contact your Local Distribution Company to disconnect power to your home. Once power has been turned off or disconnected a licensed electrical contractor should be contacted to determine if electrical equipment (wires, plugs) need to be replaced.

    Do not plug in or attempt to use electrical appliances that have been wet until they have been checked or serviced by an electrician or service agency. Ask your electrician, or contact the manufacturer or dealer for the nearest service location.

    Floodwaters are usually very dirty. During a flood, water leaves the normal course of streambeds and washes over the countryside. The floodwaters then come in contact with farmyards, manure piles, refuse heaps, outhouses, overflowing septic systems and other sources of disease, resulting in heavy contamination of the water. The contaminated water can make people sick and items that have been in contact with the floodwaters need to be handled properly. If flood damaged areas are not cleaned properly and quickly there is a danger of mould growing. Mould can be harmful to some individuals if inhaled or swallowed.

    How do I properly clean up my home after a flood?

    In situations of extensive flood damage or if floodwaters show evidence of being heavily contaminated by sewage, it may be necessary to do a more extensive cleanup in the home (carpets, crawl spaces, heating ducts). If you have extensive water damage or if wide spread mould problem develops professional assistance should be obtained.

    In situations with a small amount of flood damage with no indication of sewage contamination of flood waters, follow these cleaning directions as recommended by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

    Contact your insurance agent immediately.

    Set up a step-by-step action plan to:

    • remove all water, mud and other debris;
    • dispose of contaminated household goods;
    • rinse away contamination inside the home;
    • remove the rinse water;
    • clean and dry out your house and salvageable possessions.

    Be prepared to make difficult decisions about what to keep and what to throw out. Household items that have been contaminated by sewage, or that have been wet for a long time, will have to be bagged, tagged and discarded according to local regulations.

    Assemble equipment and supplies:

    • gloves, masks (N95 respirators) and other protective gear;
    • pails, mops, squeegees and plastic garbage bags unscented detergent;
    • large containers for wet bedding and clothing, and lines to hang them to dry;
    • you may also need to rent extension cords, submersible pumps, wet/dry shop vacuums, and dehumidifiers or heaters.

    Store valuable papers that have been damaged in a freezer until you have time to work on them.

    Remove standing water with pumps or pails, then with a wet/dry shop vacuum.

    Remove all soaked and dirty materials and debris, including wet insulation and drywall, residual mud and soil, furniture, appliances, clothing and bedding.

    Hose down any dirt sticking to walls and furnishings, then rinse several times, removing the remaining water with a wet/dry shop vacuum. Rinse, then clean all floors as quickly as possible. Flooring that has been deeply penetrated by flood water or sewage should be discarded.

    Work from the top down. Break out all ceilings and walls that have been soaked or that have absorbed water. Remove materials at least 500 mm (20 in.) above the high-water line. Removing only the lower part of the wall applies if action is taken immediately after the flood or wetting event. Gypsum board walls that have been exposed to high humidity or standing water for a prolonged period of time should be removed in their entirety and discarded. Ceiling tiles and panelling should be treated like drywall.

    Wash and wipe/scrub down all affected or flooded surfaces with unscented detergent and water. Rinse. Repeat the process as needed. Concrete surfaces can be cleaned with a solution of TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) in water (one half cup TSP to one gallon of warm water).When using TSP, which is highly corrosive, wear gloves and eye protection.

    Surfaces that are dry and/or have not been directly affected by the flood water should be vacuumed with a HEPA vacuum cleaner. Further cleaning of concrete surfaces can be done with TSP. Washable surfaces can be washed with unscented detergent and water. Surface mould on wood can be removed with a vacuum-sander. Do not sand without simultaneous vacuuming. Wood that looks mouldy, after sanding, may need to be replaced.

    After cleaning the surfaces, ventilate or dehumidify the house until it is completely dry. Rapid drying is important to prevent mould growth. When the outside weather permits (low humidity and moderate temperature), open doors and windows and hasten the drying process with fans. If the outside weather is not suitable and you notice that drying is not happening fast, use dehumidifying equipment, renting extra units as necessary.

    To determine if the outdoor air can help dry the air inside, place a hygrometer in the area to be dried. Let it stabilize then open a window and monitor the Relative Humidity (RH). If it goes down then it means the air is dry enough to assist the drying process. If the RH increases, close the window.

    Carpets must be dried within two days. Sewage-soaked carpets must be discarded. Homeowners can't effectively dry large areas of soaked carpets themselves. Qualified professionals are required.

    Ensure that all interior cavities and structural members are completely dry (which could take weeks) before closing cavities.

    If there is potential that the floodwaters are contaminated by sewage, disinfection is recommended following cleaning. It is important that surfaces that have been in contact with flood water are disinfected to remove bacteria and viruses.

    Disinfection of the surfaces must be completed once the cleaning steps above have been completed. When cleaning with a disinfectant be sure to ventilate the room by opening windows and wear rubber boots and waterproof gloves as strong solutions may irritate skin and cause respiratory symptoms.

    Walls, hard-surfaced floors and many other household surfaces should be cleaned with soap and water until all visible soil is removed. Once surfaces appear clean disinfect with a solution of 5 ml of household bleach mixed with 1 L of water. Disinfection is recommended because flood waters may be contaminated. Following cleaning it is important that surfaces that have been in contact with flood water are disinfected to remove bacteria and viruses

    What precautions should be taken for food and water safety after a flood?

    Food and water safety are important after a flood or power outage due to a storm. Follow these guidelines to protect yourself and your family:

    If your well has been flooded, it could have been contaminated. Until you can get your well water tested, boil your water rapidly for at least one minute before use, or use bottled water for drinking, making infant formula, juices, cooking, making ice, washing fruits and vegetables or brushing teeth.

    Once the flooding has receded you may begin to disinfect your well. For instructions on disinfecting your well click on teh following link to instructions on the Health Unit website at: http://rcdhu.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/water-well-disinfection-instructions.pdf

    Food items that have come into contact with floodwaters should be thrown out, with the exception of sealed canned goods. However, the outside of sealed canned goods must be thoroughly washed with clean water and disinfected.

    Without electrical power your refrigerator will keep food cool for 4-6 hours. Dispose of all foods that are a high-risk for contamination. These include:

    • fish, poultry and meats, including cold cuts eggs, milk and cheese and other dairy products;
    • soups, stews, casseroles; and
    • any food that may have come in contact with meat juices.

    If your chest freezer is full, foods inside should remain safely frozen for up to 48 hours after a power failure. If your freezer is half full, foods inside should remain safely frozen for 24 hours after a power failure.

    PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2017-01)

    The purpose of the amendment is to permit a maximum of three accessory dwelling units on a property that may also be used for commercial purposes in accordance with the uses permitted in the Highway Commercial (HC) zone.

A corresponding application for Site Plan Approval is also being processed by the Township.

    All written and oral submissions received on the application were considered in the decision-making process. In order to address comments received from the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) requiring a second entrance to be removed as a condition of the rezoning, a holding zone was added to the rezoning for the property. The holding zone will allow the principle of development for the property to be established through the rezoning to HC-E26-h, but a building permit cannot be issued until the condition is met as established by the corresponding resolution passed by Council and the holding symbol is lifted.

    LOCATION OF SUBJECT LANDS

    The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 1200 Pembroke Street East (Provincial Highway 148), in Lot 22, Plan 413, within Part Lot 19, Concession 2 F.A.L., geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.

    It should be noted that the County has recently changed the online GIS system so if you previously used the website it may take you a few minutes to figure out how to complete certain tasks. The new application is now compatible for all browsers and mobile devices. The old application is no longer operational.  You will still be able to do most of the same functions but there are some things that are different so users of the previous application will need to play with the new application to familiarize yourself with the changes.

     

     It enables users to search for properties, find points of interest, locate street addresses, create maps and perform various other geographic searches in the County of Renfrew.

     

    What are some examples of what I can do with Renfrew County Mapping?

    find a community site in the County of Renfrew (e.g. hospitals)

    locate urban points in the County of Renfrew

    discover lakes and waterways in the County of Renfrew

    print maps in colour or black and white

    print map images at a specific scale of your choice

    turn on different map layers to include or remove features such as rivers, roads, contours and properties

    conduct a business search or locate a business

    measure distances and areas

    find vacant land and buildings available for development

    students can learn about the natural features of the County of Renfrew

    produce sketches for severance applications

    produce your own maps for farm and forest management planning

     

    What are the computer system requirements to use Renfrew County Mapping?

    You don’t need any advanced computer hardware ... just a machine with an Internet connection, and a web browser.

    Spring is a good time to have your well water tested for bacteria. Melting snow and heavy rains may affect the safety of your drinking water. Testing your well water will alert you to any changes in the quality of your drinking water. The presence of bacteria in your water may act as an early warning sign of health risks associated with drinking contaminated well water. The Health Unit recommends that you test your well water at least three times a year.

    Water wells can become polluted by flooding. Sometimes bad water has a nasty taste, odour, or cloudiness. Other times it tastes, smells and looks the same as clean water.

    During a flood, dirty water may get directly into the water table through the well itself, through an old well or some other opening in the ground nearby. In this way it bypasses the natural purifying action of the earth.

    Water wells may not be affected by floods. However, homeowners are urged to test all wells in the flooded area for bacteria.

    Until tests show the water to be drinkable, all water for drinking should be boiled. Bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute will kill most germs. For more information follow this link to Renfrew County & District Health Unit website http://rcdhu.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Safe-Water-Boil-water-advisory.pdf

    If you think or are told that your well water is unsafe because of chemicals, then boiling will make the problem worse. Instead, use another source of water such as store bought bottled water.

    You can contact the Renfrew County and District Health Unit at 613-735-8654 or 1-800-267-1097 extension 555 for further information about how to disinfect a well.

    Renfrew County and District Health Unit provides water testing services for residents who have private drinking water systems.

    If you get your drinking water from a well, you should have it tested for bacteria at least three times per year. Testing times should be spread out over the year, for example during or just after a spring melt, in mid-summer and in the fall. In addition to regular testing, well water should be tested:

    • after any work to pumps or plumbing
    • if the well has not been used for several weeks
    • if there has been flooding in the area, or
    • if there has been a change in water colour or odour

    Water testing is free. Sample bottles can be picked up at Health Unit offices. Sample bottles can also be picked up at all municipal offices in Renfrew County and District.

    Instructions for taking the sample come with the water sample bottles. Follow the instructions carefully and write all of the information requested on the sample form.

    Take the sample as close as possible to the time you will be dropping it off for testing. If you are not dropping off your sample right away, keep it in the fridge or a cooler.

    DROPPING OFF YOUR WATER SAMPLE FOR TESTING

    There are five locations throughout the County where you can drop off your water sample.  The closest one for Laurentian Valley residents is:

    Office Location and Hours Drop-off Times
    PEMBROKE – Health Unit Office

     

    7 International Drive,  Pembroke
    613-735-8654 Ext. 555

    Monday to Friday (September to end of June): 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
    July and August: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

    Monday – Thursday during regular office hours Friday before 8:45 a.m.

     

    Courier picks up samples

    Long weekends and statutory holidays – please check with the Health Unit for possible changes to the above schedule.

    Interpreting your water test results

    Public Health Inspectors are there to help you understand what your water results mean and how to fix any problems with your drinking water. Call the Health Unit at 613-735-8654 or 1-800-267-1097 extension 555.

    Do not rely on the test results of only one water sample. The Health Unit recommends you take three samples taken one to three weeks apart to make sure your drinking water is safe to drink.

    If you want to check for chemicals in your well water, you need to contact a lab or a water treatment company. Call the Health Unit for more information.

    Municipal Partnership in the Ottawa Valley Chooses to Walk Lightly on the Environment!

    www.ovwrc.com

    The Township of Laurentian Valley, in partnership with the Town of Petawawa, the City of Pembroke, The Township of North Algona - Wilberforce, and the Township of Bonnechere Valley (combined population of 40,000), is committed to the implementation of new diversion facilities to reduce the disposal of solid waste through landfilling and to provide a cost effective and environmentally friendly long-term waste management system.

    The facilities, which include a Material Recovery Facility (MRF), a Central Composting Facility, and a Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Facility, is located at the (former) Alice & Fraser Landfill Site located in the Township of Laurentian Valley, approximately two hours north west of the National Capital.

    The proposed waste management system is expected to increase the diversion rate in this combined urban/rural service area to approximately 65%, well above the 50% provincial objective.
    The Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre and Landfill Site is located at 900 Woito Station Road.

    HOURS of OPERATION:

    The Township of Laurentian Valley is pleased to congratulate Rainbow Heritage Garden for being one of the 2014 Regional Award Winners of the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence, for their Root Cellar innovation.  “The Premier's Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence recognizes innovations that improve existing products, create jobs and drive economic growth.“  http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/premier_award/2014/events/g/rhg.htm

     

    Provincial representatives attended at the Township Office on Monday December 22nd, 2014, to present Rainbow Heritage Garden with their award.  The innovative root cellar for their fruits and vegetables was inspired by European wine and cheese caves.  The 600-square-foot root cellar is carved into a nearby hillside, to 16 feet below grade.  The cellar takes advantage of cooler underground temperatures to keep their harvest fresh, along with a hundred cubic feet of ice that is harvested each February. The cellar can hold 20,000 pounds of produce. Completed in 2011, their investment has already paid for itself with spoilage rates at Rainbow Heritage Garden having dropped 90 per cent and also providing a draw to the Farm as part of “Root Cellar Days”.

     

    Mayor Bennett says: “Council is very proud to have innovators such as Kylah and Zach continuing the agricultural tradition in Laurentian Valley in a sustainable way.  Congratulations and all the best for the continued success and growth of this exciting business.”

     

    Rainbow Heritage Garden is located at 81 Stafford Second Line in the Township of Laurentian Valley and is operated by Kylah Dobson and Zach Loeks.  Rainbow Heritage Garden produces Certified Organic vegetables on a 7th generation off-grid Family Farm. They grow over 200 different varieties of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, and dry beans, including many heirlooms. Their produce is available through a CSA program, a Farmers Market Share, the Ottawa Valley Food Coop and on Saturdays at the Carp Farmer’s Market.  More information on Rainbow Heritage Garden can be found on their website at http://www.rainbowheritage.ca

     

    Rainbow Heritage Garden was also previously awarded a Regional Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence in 2010 for their innovations used to irrigate their crops using a catchment pond and mobile solar generator, providing for a system that is reliable, environmentally responsible and cost-effective.

(formerly ATC Panels) that the medium density fibreboard plant has been successful in an application for funding under the the Industrial Electricity Incentive Stream 2 program.

     

    This is a great step towards the proposed re-opening of the plant targetted for the Summer of 2014.  Great news for Laurentian Valley, the County of Renfrew and the surrounding area on the proposed return of this industry!  Hopefully more good news to come in the near future!

     

    Statistics provided by Pembroke MDF and the County of Renfrew Economic Development Department indicate the following impacts.  The OPA contract award will yield savings of up to $24 million in a 6 year period reducing costs to $50 per MW from $100 per MW  This enables competitive operations for the mill.  The restart of the Plant would create 110 jobs plus another 40 when the moulding plant is reopened. The mill directly affects 19 local lumber mills, 58 timber harvesting businesses, 15 trucking companies and forest management companies with total employment of 1,895.  Indirectly, Pembroke MDF will represent another 1,500 employees.  Using a conservative multiplier the County estimates that an operating mill will affects over 6,280 workers and contribute indirectly to 1,069 provincial jobs.

    <![CDATA[Economic Development]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/economic-development/http://www.lvtownship.ca/economic-development/Mon, 09 Jan 2017 6:37:20 -0800The Township of Laurentian Valley has experienced steady growth over the past years. The increase in residential development, growth of the commercial power centre located southeast of the City of Pembroke, the reopening of Pembroke MDF (medium density fibreboard plant in LV) and the reinvestment and growth in commercial development in the area along County Road 51 stretching westward from the boundary with the City of Pembroke, towards the Town of Petawawa and along Highway 148, have all helped to strengthen our dynamic community. 

    Economic development in the Township of Laurentian Valley also benefits from the surrounding communities as opportunities are presented for complementary businesses and services in this already strong, healthy and vibrant municipality.

    The proximity of Garrison Petawawa in the adjacent Town of Petawawa, with its growth in military and civilian personnel is one of the factors that enhance the potential for the Township of Laurentian Valley to attract new economic development and/or retain and grow existing business and industry. The Township of Laurentian Valley is also situated in close commuting distance to the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) facilities in Chalk River and Deep River (formerly known as AECL).  These facilities together with the Algonquin College Pembroke Waterfront Campus in the adjacent City of Pembroke, make the Township an attractive location for firms supporting advanced manufacturing and the nuclear industry to locate, as well as niche manufacturing and business supporting the creative economy.  Easy access through the Township to outside markets is available through the Highway 17 and Highway 41 corridors.  Laurentian Valley also is home to many persons employed at CNL and Garrison Petawawa due to its close proximity, providing further opportunities for residential growth.

    In addition to the information found under the Economic Development section of this website, there are other sections of the Township website which provide some related information:

    The former Townships of Stafford-Pembroke and the Township of Alice and Fraser amalgamated on January 1, 2000 to create the Township of Laurentian Valley. The Township of Laurentian Valley surrounds the City of Pembroke and is south of the Town of Petawawa.  According to 2011 Census Statistics, the Township has a population of 9,647.

    Land uses range from rural residential and farming properties on private water and sewer services to suburban and residential and highway commercial on municipal water and sewer. There are several blocks of industrial properties in the municipality and regionally significant mineral aggregate resources.

    Community Policing "Partnerships"

    A partnership in community policing involves the police and the community working together to resolve mutual issues, which contribute to or maintain social order.

    NOTICE OF ADOPTION
        OF AN OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT BY
        THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY 

    TAKE NOTICE that Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-law No. 2016-06-032, thereby adopting Official Plan Amendment No.11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley on the 21st day of June, 2016, in accordance with Sections 17 and 21 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.

    PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT  NO. 11 (OPA NO. 11) -  File No. O-2016-01
    The purpose of proposed OPA  No. 11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley is to redesignate lands in order to allow one additional new lot occupied by an existing single detached dwelling to be created by severance. Three (3) existing commercial lots were previously created from the original holding and the policies of the Official Plan currently limit the maximum number of new lots by severance to 3 from the original holding as of January 18, 1979. The new lot to be created is known municipally as 1112 Pembroke Street East (Highway 148).  The existing commercial lots were subject to site plan control as part of their approval and are fully developed. The proposed severance is also to aid in the consolidation of lands for potential future development of the retained lands.  Please note, no specific development of the retained lands are proposed at this time.

    Due to the site specific situation, a site specific exception to the Official Plan policy is proposed.  An associated application for consent to sever the lot will subsequently be filed with the County of Renfrew Land Division Committee.  The effect of this amendment is to redesignate lands from “Residential” to “Residential-Exception One” and from “Commercial” to “Commercial-Exception Three” on Schedule ‘A-3’ (Pembroke) to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley and to establish a special provision to allow the severance of a fourth lot from the original holding.

    LOCATION OF AMENDMENT 
    The lands affected by OPA No. 11 (File No. O-2016-01), are known municipally as 1112 Pembroke Street East (Provincial Highway 148) and are located in Part of Lots 22 and 23, Concession 2, FAL, in the geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

    A COPY of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and any additional related information is available for inspection during regular office hours at the Township Office or at the County of Renfrew Planning Department.

    ANY PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY will be entitled to receive notice of the proposed decision of the Approval Authority which is the County of Renfrew, if a written request to be notified of the decision is made to the County of Renfrew, Department of Property and Development, Attention: Mr. Bruce Howarth, MCIP, RPP, Senior Planner, 9 International Drive, Pembroke, Ontario, K8A 6W5; Fax No. 613-735-2492; E-mail: bhowarth@countyofrenfrew.on.ca 

    PLEASE NOTE that one of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efficient. Accordingly, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Township to such persons as the Township deems appropriate, including anyone requesting such information. Accordingly, in providing any such information, you shall be deemed to have consented to its use and disclosure as part of the planning process.

     

    A FULL COPY OF THE NOTICE IS AVAILABLE FROM THE TOWNSHIP OFFICE OR BY DOWNLOAD FROM THIS WEBSITE. 

    AS THE COUNTY OF RENFREW HAS NOW APPROVED OPA NO. 11, A COPY OF THEIR DECISION AND LETTER ADVISING OF NOW APPEALS IS ALSO ATTACHED.

Effective October 1st, for Municipalities serviced by the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre, this material must be placed in regular garbage, not recycling bins.

    Ottawa Valley Waste Management Board Chairman, Laurentian Valley Mayor Steve Bennett, explained the importance of ensuring the Centre is utilizing tax payer’s dollars in the most effective way. “In reality, this material doesn’t save significant landfill space. It has limited end markets, causes significant maintenance issues at the Centre and the revenue received from the sale of Styrofoam™ and Film Plastic is far less than the cost to manage it. We could be investing that money and staff time into other waste diversion projects that would save much more landfill space.”

    At their May meeting, the Board heard from Centre staff about the problems caused by processing material such as Styrofoam™ and Film Plastics. Mike Birett, Managing Director of the Continuous Improvement Fund, a Provincial organization mandated to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Ontario’s Blue Box Program, was invited to speak to the Board at their June 29th meeting and provide detailed information on the issues.

    “It’s costly to divert problematic, low value materials such as Polystyrene and Film Plastic from the landfill. Those few programs that manage these materials tend to have higher operating costs and receive less Waste Diversion Ontario funding as a result.” Mr. Birett explained to the Board.

    Waste Recovery Centre Communication Staff are in the process of developing messaging on this change which will be distributed via local media over the next three months, prior to the October 1st date.

    “We will be working hard to clearly convey the message on why the difficult decision to no longer recycle Styrofoam™ and Film Plastic was made.” Explains Sue McCrae, Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre General Manager. “There were many factors that were considered by the Board. Even the fact that accepting plastic bags for recycling means you also get many non-recyclable plastic bags including sandwich bags, potting soil bags and plastic wrap. These have to be hand sorted by staff so other recyclables are not missed on our conveyor sorting line.”

    Fraudsters impersonate the real Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by telephone or by email. Fraudsters are either phishing for your identification or asking that outstanding taxes be paid by a money service business or by pre-paid debit/credit cards. There are two variations:

    1. There is notification by phone or email from the "CRA" claiming there is a refund pending. In order for the recipient to receive the refund they must provide personal information.

    2. Consumers and businesses receive a notification by phone or email that they owe "back taxes" as the result of an audit. The payment must be made immediately to avoid a fine or the recipient is told there is an outstanding warrant that can be avoided if the payment is made promptly. In many cases, individuals are told they will be deported or arrested if the taxes are not paid right away.

    Protect yourself
    •Do not take immediate action. Verify that what you are being told is the truth.
    •Ask yourself why the CRA would be asking for personal information over the phone or email that they likely already have on file for you as a taxpayer.
    •Contact the CRA to confirm that you in fact owe back taxes, or are entitled to a refund, before providing any personal or banking information.” (www.antifraudcentre.ca)

The annual calendar, distributed by the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre on behalf of the Municipalities, outlines collection days for waste, recycling and green carts as well as special collections such as leaf and yard waste and Spring and Fall bulky item.

    The Collection Schedules begin April 1st. The layout and design of the schedules is the same as previous years and there are no program changes to note. Residents are encouraged to review the calendar to ensure they are meeting all the requirements when setting material at the curb or roadside for collection.

    Proper set-out of materials ensures items are not left behind. Dave Unrau, Director of Public Works for the Town of Petawawa explains one example of this. “Residential recycling is accepted loose in the yellow bin, blue box or other reusable container. If recyclables are placed out in plastic bags they will not be collected. The contractor will leave a sticker behind explaining why material was left behind.”

    Other requirements such as clearance around the green cart, proper distance from the road and how to properly sort recycling are all outlined in the collection schedule. “It’s a good idea for residents review this calendar every year – it’s a good refresher, sometimes we forget that milk cartons go in the yellow bin!” Comments Mr. Unrau.

    While residents in Pembroke and Laurentian Valley will see no collection day changes there are minor changes to collection days in Petawawa. Residents can refer to the map on the schedule to verify their collection day.
    Copies of the schedules will be delivered by March 11th. Copies are also available at Municipal Offices or the Centre’s website at www.ovwrc.com.

Materials placed on top of snowbanks can present a safety hazard for collection contractors working in Petawawa, Pembroke and Laurentian Valley and improper set-out can result in damage to containers by snowplows.
    Here are the set-out requirements for recycling and garbage containers as well as green carts.

    • Items must be placed 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m) from curb or roadside (in driveway, not on sidewalk or snow bank). Material placed behind or on top of snowbanks may not be collected.
    • Green cart must have 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 m) clearance around it to allow for proper collection.
    • Green cart wheels must be facing away from the road. Lids must be closed.

    “It’s not safe to have our snow plow operators maneuver around containers that are set-out too close to the road.” States Mark. Behm, Public Works Manager at the Township of Laurentian Valley. “Containers can be blown over or struck when the snow plow passes. The requirement to have material set-off the roadside 5 to 6 feet and in your driveway helps prevent containers from being hit.”
    And setting material on top of snowbanks presents some safety hazards for the collection contractor explains Mr. Behm. “When material is placed on top of or in a snowbank it may not be collected. It’s a safety hazard for collection crews to retrieve items and lift them down off the snowbank. And items cannot be removed at all if they become frozen in the snow.”
    Here are some more winter collection tips:

    • Clear out a place for your containers when you shovel snow.
    • If the storm is occurring in the overnight hours, wait until the morning to place your material curbside.
    • To help prevent material from freezing to your green cart:
      • Line the bottom of your green cart with crumpled up newspaper or pizza boxes.
      • Wrap food waste in newspaper or boxes (i.e. cereal box).
      • Strain excess liquid from soups and sauces and only place the solid pieces in the cart.
      • Layer wet organics (food waste, leaves) with dry organics (newspaper, pizza boxes).
    • Nets are available for purchase at your Municipal office or Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre. Nets cover the bins to prevent wind-blown litter.

    For more information on your local recycling programs, please refer to your Municipality’s collection calendar or visit www.ovwrc.com.

The Municipality is upgrading its streetlight system to light-emitting diode (LED) streetlights because LEDs will use 63% less electricity than the current, outdated system. That decreased energy use is also expected to result in a 63% savings on electricity costs to power the streetlights. LED streetlights also reduce maintenance costs by 80% because they last four times longer than traditional streetlights.

    Laurentian Valley’s Municipal Council authorized Local Authority Services (LAS) and its partner RealTerm Energy to assess the existing street light network, create an energy efficient and cost-effective lighting design, and then coordinate the purchase of the new LED lights from CREE Canada, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers. “The Township of Laurentian Valley is pleased to announce the LED Retrofit project with RealTerm Energy. This project brings many benefits for the Township and its residents including cost savings and an increase in safety for the community,” said Mayor Steve Bennett.

    While consuming less energy, LEDs produce a clear, white light that improves night visibility and community safety. The beams of LEDs are more targeted than traditional streetlights to light only the streets and roadways, which helps reduce light pollution. LEDs will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Township by an estimated 10 metric tonnes per year, the equivalent of the carbon removed by 256 tree seedlings grown for ten years.

    The Township of Laurentian Valley is one of more than 130 Ontario municipalities that have chosen RealTerm Energy and Local Authority Services (LAS) to upgrade to LED street lighting, including Laurentian Hills, Arnprior and Barrie.

    Project Overview

    Total number of fixtures:    240
    Annual electricity cost savings:    63%
    Annual electricity consumption reduction:    63%
    Estimated annual greenhouse gas reduction:     10 metric tons – the equivalent of the carbon removed by 256 tree seedlings grown for ten years.


    RealTerm Energy Corp., a Realterm Global company, is redefining the municipal street lighting market with intelligent LED lighting systems and services that deliver unmatched energy and maintenance savings. We create and foster long-term partnerships with forward-thinking private, public and government market leaders to deliver innovative and cost-effective lighting solutions.

    Local Authority Services (LAS) is a preferred provider of competitively priced and sustainable co-operative business services for Ontario municipalities and the broader public sector. As the not-for-profit service arm of AMO, LAS helps its customers “save money, make money, and build capacity.”

Booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4- 8 when compared to seatbelt use alone.    Parents and caregivers must follow the manufacturer’s weight and height requirements for child car seats and booster seats. The law in Ontario allows a child to start using a seatbelt alone once any one of the following criteria is met:
    •    child turns eight years old 
    •    child weighs 36 kg (80 lbs.) 
    •    child is 145 cm (4 feet 9 inches) tall

    The overall layout of the proposed subdivision has changed to keep Lloyd Drive as a cul-de-sac and have access connect to Pembroke Street West and TV Tower Road, and also to relocate the proposed location of the sewage pumping/lift station block.  To accommodate the new layout, the overall number of lots proposed has been reduced by 8 units and is now as follows: 151 lots for single detached residential lots, 46 freehold semi-detached dwellings on 23 lots and 108 freehold townhouse dwelling units on 17 blocks, for a total of 305 residential units proposed. The subdivision will include the creation of several interior roads, with access to the development proposed to be from TV Tower Road and Pembroke Street West, along with a parkland block and a stormwater management block. The lots are to be serviced by piped municipal sewer and water services.
