An outdoor banquet facility and children’s camp do not belong on environmentally protected lands. That was the decision King council reached at a council meeting Monday. In a recorded vote, councillors voted unanimously to oppose the development, proposed to be located on the Oak Ridges Moraine in King. The official plan amendment and zoning bylaw amendment applications were submitted by the applicant, Peter Eliopoulos. The applicant was looking to house an outdoor banquet facility and children’s camp on a 49-hectare (121-acre) parcel of land located at 3550 18th Sideroad. The property is located on the west side of Highway 400 between the 18th Sideroad and Lloydtown-Aurora Road.
