AND WHEREAS Section 6.0 – Accountability, Transparency and Public Notice Requirements, requires that in considering a sale of City owned land, the land must be declared surplus to the needs and requirements of the municipality and prior to the land sale, notice of the disposition of the surplus lands posted on the City’s website and advertised in the local newspaper for two (2) consecutive weeks.

AND WHEREAS the Council for the Corporation of the City of Timmins considers it desirable and expedient that the described lands be declared surplus to the Corporation’s municipal requirements so as to advertise the sale of these lands through a public tender.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Council of the Corporation of the City of Timmins does hereby declare the following described land as being surplus to the Corporation’s requirements and offer these lands for public sale:

Subject Land: Highway 101 East
Roll No. 5627-040-170-10500
Matheson Con 2 South Part of Lot 6, Parcel 18851 SEC

City of Timmins
District of Cochrane, Ontario

Highway 101 East Property Location Map

Frontage: 76.20 metres (250 feet)
Depth: 263.71 metres (865.20 feet)
Area: 20,094.70 square metres (4.96 acres)
Appraised Value: $25,000.00

There shall be no minimum amount required for any proposed offer; however, this property has an appraised value of $25,000.00 and this value shall be used as a key factor in evaluating public offers. The City reserves the right not to accept, without explanation, any proposed offer submitted.

City of Timmins Official Plan designates this property as Resource Development. City of Timmins Zoning By-law 2011-7100 zones the subject property as Rural (RD-RU).

The subject land is vacant, and no sanitary or municipal water services are available. As the property is located on Highway 101 East, property access approval is required through the Ministry of Transportation. The MTO have provided the following comments regarding the subject lands:

A field entrance already exists to the property and has been there for quite some time, therefore MTO grandfathers the entrance as an existing non-compliant access. Any future access to the property will have to be from said entrance. The proposed new owners will have to apply for a change of ownership permit, there is no fee for the permit. Also, MTO will allow the entrance to be upgraded to residential standards.

Furthermore, please advise your client that if they will be constructing any buildings, structures, well, septic system, etc. within 45 metres of the limits of the highway, a ministry building and land use permit may be required.

City Council approved Resolution 21-024 on February 9, 2021 which declared the subject property surplus to the needs of the municipality in accordance with By-law No. 2019-8360 respecting the City of Timmins Land sale procedures.
