A part of municipal reserve Lot 1R, Block 1, Plan 782 3421, which is part of Heritage Grove Park, has certain encroachments into it from an abutting parcel. The park lands are currently fenced, sodded, and being maintained as part of an existing manufactured home park unit located in the Mobile City Estates manufactured home court. This manufactured home in question has its west wall more or less located on the park's property line, and its building extensions that include a significant deck, part of which is covered, and concrete pads front and back are located within Heritage Grove Park. The subject lands are bounded on the west by a ball-field within the parkland, to the north by a natural tree stand, and to the west and south by manufactured homes (see Attachment B).
As a proposed solution to this encroachment matter City administration proposes to redistrict, subdivide, and sell approximately 0.033 hectares of the reserve parcel to the abutting landowner. The removal of this small sliver of land on the park edge is not regarded as causing or having any detrimental effects on the overall park, and therefore its removal to correct the encroachment matter is supported by administration. This solution requires that the municipal reserve designation for the subject parkland must be removed by City Council prior to its sale. Additionally, a redistricting of the lands from P1- Parks and Recreation to RMHC District is also required, and that process is proceeding concurrently with this proposed municipal reserve designation removal process under Bylaw C-1059-18.
