The Town of Souris has received an application from LANDFEST Company Ltd. to purchase and rezone/amend property PID#103390 at 3 Belle Ave.   It is currently zoned (R1) residential and they have submitted a formal request to have it re-zoned (C1) commercial.  They currently own the adjacent property PID#101600 at 128 Main Street which is zoned commercial.  (where Robin’s Donuts is located)  The applicant is proposing to construct a new 6,000 sq/ft commercial space on PID#101600 for a Robin’s kiosk, drive through and space for a retail establishment.  The additional parcel of land is primarily needed to meet parking requirements.  A map of the area showing the property (with cross lines) to be rezoned is included.

As per Section #21 Amendments of Town of Souris Zoning and Subdivision Control Bylaw #2010-02 we are required to notify property owners that live within a five hundred foot (500’) radius of the subject property in addition to an advertisement for a public hearing at least 7 clear days prior to the date fixed for the public meeting.  This gives the Council the opportunity to hear and consider any concerns from the public prior to making their decision.  The applicant will also be at the meeting to answer questions.

You can either attend in person (you must register to attend in person) or you can submit your concerns or questions in writing.  Any written concerns or questions must be received by February 8, 2021 at 4:00pm.  These can be mailed to Town of Souris, PO Box 628, Souris, PEI, C0A 2B0 or dropped off to Town Hall at 75 Main Street, or by email [email protected]Please address to CAO Shelley LaVie, RE: LANDFEST Rezoning Application
