List of secondary suite addresses ready to fax on Jan. 1

Editor: We can finally reclaim our neighbourhood. Thank you, finally, and long overdue, to the newly adopted bylaw by the Township to impose licensing and utility fees for secondary suite owners.

I alone have 14 addresses ready to be faxed on Jan. 1, 2014, with the secondary suites I’m aware of in my own neighbourhood.

And since owners now have to provide off-road tenant parking, I’ve also included tenant licence plate numbers. Yes, I’ve had enough of my visitors being displaced by a tenant vehicle, in particular of those with illegal suites.

It’ll be interesting to see where this over-saturation of tenant vehicles park as of Jan. 1.

Our neighbourhood has been compared to a parking lot, so I am elated the Township is taking a firm approach in making our neighbourhoods safer and appealing to live in.
