A phased-in subdivision development on the airport hill in North Bay received final approval from city councillors after being held up for a decade.
Councillors adopted staff recommendations that further studies are not needed for the first 13 lots of the 151-lot development proposed by Laurentian Heights Ltd. Soil. Storm water management and traffic studies are finished, but a diamond-drill bore hole study is needed to test rock stability and underground water flow.
The Ontario Municipal Board decision in 2000 suggested the studies be done.
