Dear Ms. Le,
I am writing to you on behalf of (Giampaolo Investments Limited) owners of the lands located at 13921 Airport Road within the Town of Caldedon ON.
The subject lands are designated “General Agricultural Area” under the Town of Caldeon’s Current Official Plan and A1 – Agricultural under the Town’s zoning by-law.
The new proposed Region of Peel Official Plan 2051 contemplates the lands as Future Strategic Employment Area under Schedule ‘E-4’ – Employment Areas. Schedules ‘F-1’ & ‘F-2’ Rapid Transit Cooridors & Major Road Network and identify our lands outside of the GTA West Transportation Corridor (Hwy 413) location & alignment area. Given the lands location along Airport Road and the proximity to the new proposed Hwy 413 future goods movement transportation corridor, the lands are ideally located within an area that warrants consideration for future employment uses.
We are therefore seeking a request to have our subject lands designated as Employment.
Caledon is part of Ontario's largest logistics network due to its proximity to Canada's commercial airport – Toronto Pearson International – and multimodal railway networks combined with easy access to major road networks and its location at the centre of the GTA. Companies such as Amazon, Canadian Tire and UPS have recently located massive distribution warehouse facilities in Caledon. As a result of these businesses choosing Caledon, a number of new businesses have started to emerge such as trucking depots, support activities for transportation and warehousing and storage.
We have prepared a concept plan attached with this letter, which shows conceptually how these lands could be developed for industrial purposes. The proposal contemplates a 120,000SF industrial building fronting onto Airport Road, with approximately 400-500 truck and trailer parking located at the rear of the property. (Included within the supporting document section).
I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and review of this request.
