Public Supports Supermarket Rezoning

By: admin | Tags: News

Cobourg Council heard public submissions Monday evening concerning rezoning of land where the Foodland supermarket now sits. Oz Kemal of MHBC Landscape Consultants explained that the existing store and a restaurant at the north end of the lot will eventually be demolished so that Sobey’s can construct a new store with twice the floor space of the existing building. Once the new building is erected at the north end of the property, the present supermarket will also be demolished to expand parking for 208 cars. The current store will remain open while construction is underway. Public comment was invited and no one spoke in opposition to the proposal. Residents were concerned that the existing entrance off  Division Street next to the Tim Horton’s driveway poses a problem. Planning Director Glenn McGlashon said that the street entrance is presently being reviewed by the consultants and will be dealt with as part of the site plan agreement. Council instructed staff to prepare a by-law leading to rezoning. Construction on the new facility is expected to begin in the spring of 2018.
