The City of Oshawa is undertaking a public consultation to obtain input on whether the City should pass by-laws under the Municipal Act, 2001 to control nuisance dust and dirt on roads and properties in Oshawa due to construction and development projects.
At its June 25, 2018, City Council considered report DS-18-127 “Dust Control Related to New Development” which identified a potential need to further control dust and mud primarily caused by site alteration in new development areas, beginning with the stripping or filling of the development site. Accordingly, City Council directed staff to undertake a public and industry consultation process to obtain feedback on whether the City should approve by-laws to control dust and mud associated with construction and development on roads and properties adjacent to the development.
Examples of such by-laws are appended in the following attachments in report DS-18-127 “Dust Control Related to New Development”:
- · Attachment 3 – Road Fouling By-law
- · Attachment 5 – Nuisance Dust Control By-law
Feedback will be considered in a report at a future meeting of City Council.
You can provide your feedback directly to Michelle Whitbread (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ken Man (email@example.com).
You can also provide feedback to Stacey (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration for DRHBA's feedback letter.
