Another hurdle cleared for Tim Hortons 0
Haliburton County's roads committee recommended approval of a site plan agreement for a Tim Hortons in Haliburton Village at their June 13 meeting.
The store, to be located at 5003 County Rd. 21, received the necessary zoning amendments from Dysart et al council on June 11.
The site plan agreement includes the construction of left- and right-hand turning lanes, a paved shoulder and the rebuilding of ditches to be done at the company's expense.
"The ditch will have to be moved back and new slopes put in," roads director Doug Ray told the four-councillor committee.
Algonquin Highlands Deputy-reeve Liz Danielsen wondered if there'd been any opposition to the recommendation from the company.
Ray said no and added the county would be providing Tim Hortons with design specifics by the end of the week.
Any objections the company may have would come back to county councillors.
Dysart et al Reeve Murray Fearrey said his council had reviewed the project extensively and supported it.
Some residents in the area of the proposed store have expressed safety concerns associated with increased traffic flows and this week a letter surfaced falsely suggesting two Dysart et al councillors had died as a result of Tim Hortons-related traffic.
County council almost always passes the recommendations of its committees.
