OMB decision pending

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

After three full days of hearings in Hamilton, an OMB (Ontario Municipal Board) chairman reserved decision on an application to build a new water-bottling plant behind the existing Flamboro Springs operation on 6th Concession Road East. The plan also includes storage of dismantled construction cranes on the same site.

After hearing from both sides of the contentious application, the OMB chair announced he would review the evidence and advise both parties of his decision by mail. He gave no timeline for release of his decision.

Flamborough businessman, Charlie Cetinski, presented plans for expansion of his water-bottling business last spring. His proposal met with stiff opposition from some area residents and Flamborough councillor Margaret McCarthy.

The application for rezoning and an Official Plan Amendment went before two planning and economic development committee meetings and two Hamilton council meetings before city councillors eventually approved the new 24,000-square-foot water-bottling plant, but nixed the crane storage proposal.

Kevin King, who lives across the road from the existing plant, opposes the plan. He filed an appeal to council's decision in June.

Cetinski filed a counter appeal shortly afterward.
