WHEREAS pursuant to City of Timmins By-law No. 2019-8360 which sets out policies and procedures for the sale and disposition of municipal land.

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. The purpose of such notice is to secure any comments from the public respecting this proposed land sale to be considered by Council so that Council may consider, and if applicable, incorporate into an implementing by-law.

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: Kamiskotia Road
Part of Roll No. 5627-010-130-06400
Plan 6R-9260, Part 1, Part of Robb MCP 6811, Plan 6R-9097, Part 5, Part of Pcl 18711 SEC
Robb Township
City of Timmins
District of Cochrane, Ontario

Property location on Kamiskotia Road

Frontage: 188.46 metres (618.31 feet)
Depth: 168.955 metres (554.31 feet) on average
Area: 3.182 hectares (7.862 acres)
Appraised Value: $78,600.00

There shall be no minimum amount required for any proposed offer; however, this property has an appraised value of $78,600.00 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 Area. City of Timmins Zoning By-law 2011-7100 zones the subject property as Rural (RD-RU). A single detached dwelling is a permitted use in this zone.

The City of Timmins does acknowledge that there is a rock outcrop on the subject lands, which may impact development. This rock outcrop is noted in the appraisal report. Further, a report prepared by Rivard Engineering stated that “it is believed that the properties are suitable for building but there will be challenges for builders with the current property slopes and bedrock outcrops”. The report noted “access and development of the properties is possible, but will have significant issues and associated costs.” The subject property is being sold “as is, where is”. Any site development is the responsibility of the purchaser. The property is not serviced and would require a private well and septic system.

City Council approved Resolution 18-233 (July 10, 2018) which declared the subject property surplus to the needs of the municipality.
