A bylaw that council had already approved was rejected by the Land Title Survey Authority (LTSA) and came back to council for consideration.

A bylaw that council had already approved was rejected by the Land Title Survey Authority (LTSA) and came back to council for consideration.

The St. Paul Street road closure (bylaw 2536) was adopted on Aug. 13 by city council and was subsequently submitted to the LTSA for registration with the corresponding subdivision, but it was rejected because the area represented in the bylaw was slightly different (smaller) than the subdivision plan.

However, the landowner had already paid the city for the purchase of the portion of land.

On Sept. 9 council passed first, second and third reading of a bylaw (bylaw 2557) repealing the original bylaw and containing drawings that accurately represented the road closure.

On Sept. 23 council set up a public representation opportunity to deal with the matter. The fourth reading and adoption of the bylaw passed on that date after the public meeting registered no neighbours against the move.

The owner (Tim Manke) of the property at 2213 Fourth Ave. proposed to purchase a strip of the city boulevard along St. Paul Street, the western boundary of the lot, for $3,497.84.

The existing lot measured just under the minimum area for subdivision, so a small addition of land added to the lot allowed it to meet the minimum size for LTSA.

The land proposed for purchase would measure roughly 16 inches wide and run 100 feet along the western edge (St. Paul side) of the lot.

In return, the city would receive a three-metre wide snow storage statutory right-of-way along the St. Paul side of the lot.
