346, 350, 352 and 356 Eglinton Ave. West Direction Report and OMB Hearing

A direction report has been placed on the agenda for the September 12th meeting of North York Community Council- Direction Report for 346, 350, 352 and 356 Eglinton Ave. West

Planning staff are recommending that the City oppose the proposal for a 15 storey mixed use development which has been appealed to the OMB. I will be directing City Legal and City Planning staff to oppose this proposal at the Ontario Municipal Board pre-hearing scheduled for October 12, 2016 and the full hearing scheduled between November 21st and December 9th, 2016.

For the past year, I have stated numerous times that the proposal needs to comply with the midrise form that would be permitted on the site. I am speaking on behalf of my residents when I say that this 15 storey proposal is simply too high and too dense, it is NOT APPROPRIATE for this site.

If you wish to get involved, please contact my office or the planner on file, Vanessa Covello at 416-395-7104 or vcovell@toronto.ca.
