be supported and that a letter be sent to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch advising that:

 

 

(1)

Council supports the application as the issuance will not pose a significant impact on the community;

 

 

(2)

Council comments on the prescribed considerations are as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

The potential for additional noise in the area if the application is approved was considered and determined that there will be little or no impact of additional noise in the area due to the location of the premises;

 

 

 

(b)

The impact on the community if the application is approved was considered and based on no responses being received from the public notices, the licence approval would have little impact;

 

 

 

(c)

The amendment to permit extended hours of liquor service under the Liquor Primary Licence should not change the establishment so that it is operated in a manner that is contrary to its primary purpose as there has been no history of non-compliance with this operation;

 

 

(3)

As the operation of the establishment as a licensed establishment might affect residents, the City gathered the views of the community as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

Signage was posted at the subject property and three public notices were published in a local newspaper.  The signage and notice provided information on the application and instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and

 

 

(4)

Council’s comments and recommendations respecting the views of the residents are as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

That based on the lack of response received from all public notifications, Council considers that the amendment is acceptable to the community.
