(1.7 ac.) of the southerly portion of the lands by rezoned from the R.1 – Residential District to the OS.1 – Open Space District 1, in accordance with Exhibit ‘D‘ to Report IPSPL21-011; and
c) That the ‘H’ Holding Symbol be removed at such time as:
I. that portion of the lands zoned OS.1 is dedicated to the City for hazard land and parkland, and any purchase of excess lands is completed, or at such time as the Developer has entered into an agreement with the City with respect to the dedication of that portion of the lands and any additional requirement for payment, or combination thereof, in accordance with the provisions of the Planning Act, R.S.O 1990 c.P.13 and the City’s Parkland Dedication By-law; and
II. that Site Plan Approval is granted to facilitate the development of the northerly portion of the lands, and that the associated Site Plan Agreement include the following provisions:

ii. that a flashing light beacon be installed on the signage on the hidden driveway sign on Parkhill Road East, to address the constrained sight distance subject to the relocation of the sign to the west side of the bridge (in the north boulevard near the Guard House) and that the flashing light only be activated when a vehicle is pulling out from the driveway entrance to the subject lands, with a detection device.

iv. that further information on anticipated vibration levels associated with demolition and construction of the development be provided to Parks Canada given the proximity of the development to the canal’s earthen dams.
