Virtual information meetings for Adolphus Reach Resort, apartment building in Picton

Virtual public information meeting are set for June 14 and 16 for a tourist commercial resort development and a 12-unit rental apartment building.

On June 14, a zoning bylaw amendment for the Adolphus Reach Resort, is being presented for tourist commercial development at 1315, 1329, and 1357 County Road 7.

The proposed development for the site includes 56 villas, including 20 pod villas and 36 tree top houses, along with a main common villa, a vineyard with five accompanying winery buildings, two accompanying tent winery buildings, a tea house and an art gallery. Additionally, a pump house, a water treatment plant, and a waste management plant are proposed to facilitate sewage and water servicing on the property.

Zoning currently is rural residential types one and two and environmental protection. The amendment sought is tourist commercial with site-specific environmental protection to allow private utilities required for water servicing near the waterfront, and allowing pod villas and the main villa within the EP zone.

Fotenn Planning + Design was retained by 2522082 Ontario Inc. to prepare a planning justification report to develop the approximate 10 hectare property.

During a 2020 public open house at the property, four owners, Del Terrelonge, Ron Angelotti, Robert Valenzano and Andrew Iacobelli, were all present to answer questions. Then, the owners were looking at resort-style, but individual ownership under condominium management with price points ranging from $899,000 to $1.2 million. Each of the owners had planned to purchase a condo, but would not live there full-time. The plan was to build a permanent home for an individual regardless of how many months per year it is used.

The original number of units proposed for the site was reduced for this submission following comprehensive study and public feedback from 113 units to 56 units. The tree top houses and pod villas are intended for seasonal use.

It is not the purpose of this development to provide permanent housing for residents.

Materials for the Adolphus Reach Resort application can be viewed on The County’s website.

Members of the public who wish to attend the virtual public meeting must register by contacting Matt Coffey, Planning Coordinator, Approvals, at by noon the day before each meeting. The meetings will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams.

On June 16, an application for a zoning bylaw amendment and site plan control will be discussed for Keros Corporation’s three-storey, 12-unit rental apartment building at 13 Lake Street in Picton.

ZanderPlan, retained to assist with the amendment application, notes the need for zoning change to urban residential – apartment building. A site plan control application details site engineering.

A single detached dwelling is currently located on the subject property. Residential single-family dwelling units are located on north, south and east side of the property which is approximately 90 metres away from the intersection of Lake and West Mary streets, and 200 metres away from intersection of Lake and Picton Main streets.

Members of the public who wish to attend the virtual public meeting must register by contacting James Griffin, Intermediate Planner, at by noon on Wednesday, June 15. The meeting will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams. Materials for the application can be viewed on the County’s website.

    Yes, the image belongs to the Adolphus Reach project. (There is no lake near Lake Street in Picton.)

    Thank you for the information. The first image in the article is not captioned. Might I impose: does that imagine relate to one or both of the two proposals? Which one?
