Council approves height increase

Council approves height increase


The Town has granted a new company a development variance permit to increase the maximum height of a structure in the Industrial Transition Zone.
Structurlam recently leased 14,000 square feet of space in the old General Coach building on Co-op Avenue. The company manufactures laminated wood products and has hired approximately 40 workers to produce a specialized product.
The shavings from its planer must be vented through a dust collection system into a cyclone and stored into a chip bin. The height of this combined structure is 17.1 metres, which exceeds the 15-metre maximum height in the current zoning.
Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said the variance is likely to be negligible in terms of impact on the amenity of adjoining uses or streetscape characteristics.
Hart Buckendahl, who owns the adjacent lot to the north, said he has no objections to the variance.
“It is indeed great to see that something is happening in Oliver that will create jobs.”
