CORNWALL – To meet a bigger demand for semi-detached homes, the city’s planning committee will decide next week whether to change a nearly 20-year-old plan for an east-end development.

Developer Cartwave Realty is asking to change the lot configuration for the next phase of the East Ridge Subdivision – south of Second Street East near Boundary Road.

A report before the Cornwall Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) Tuesday says the changes to phase six of the subdivision are minor but would boost the number of lots from 41 to 48 in order to build demi-detached homes to meet market demand.

Right now the subdivision plan would not allow for any semis – just single family homes.

Phase six will also create two new streets – Tremblay Avenue and Burke Avenue – the latter connecting Glen Nora Drive and East Ridge Drive.

The developers want to extend East Ridge Drive but the Raisin Region Conservation Authority has concerns that will need to be addressed because the area is a wetland.

The planning advisory committee will meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. (Monday is Family Day) to discuss the next phase of the development.

If approved by PAC, the change still needs the approval of city council.
