Rezoning request for Oak Ridges Moraine lands will not be approved!

According to an article in today's Globe and Mail, the Member Motion made on May 13th by Regional & Local Councillor Perrelli requesting a Minister's Zoning Order (MZO) to transition of Part Lots 1, 2, 3 and 5, Concession 3, Town of Richmond Hill (the "Lands") from the Oak Ridges Moraine will not be considered or approved.

The Globe and Mail article "Ontario issues special orders to approve developers’ plans and quash opposition"written by reporter Jeff Gray states:

"Earlier this month, Richmond Hill council, north of Toronto, passed a motion asking for an MZO to rezone Greenbelt land near the Gormley GO commuter rail station to allow for industrial uses.
But Ms. O’Driscoll, Mr. Clark’s spokeswoman, said the Greenbelt remains off limits.
“We have been clear as a government that we will not touch the Greenbelt, so any MZO request for development that falls within the Greenbelt will not be considered or approved,” she said in an e-mail."
