So now it's recommended for approval... interesting: https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2018/ey/bgrd/backgroundfile-110146.pdf

At its meeting of November 14, 2017, Etobicoke York Community Council considered a report dated October 27, 2017 from the Director of Community Planning, Etobicoke York District, regarding Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment and Plan of Subdivision Applications, entitled “Refusal Report - 3002 - 3014 Islington Avenue”.

Etobicoke York Community Council recommended that:

1. City Council receive for information the report (October 27, 2017) from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District, titled "3002 – 3014 Islington Avenue – Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment and Plan of Subdivision Applications – Refusal Report".

2. City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to submit to the January 16, 2018 Etobicoke York Community Council meeting, a Final Report for the property municipally known as 3002 – 3014 Islington Avenue, which includes an implementing Official Plan Amendment and amendment to Zoning By-law No.'s 7625 and 569-2013, to permit and implement the development at 3002-3014 Islington Avenue as currently outlined in the report (October 27, 2017) from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District.

3. City Council authorize the City Clerk to provide notice of a statutory public meeting for the property municipally known as 3002 – 3014 Islington Avenue to be scheduled for the January 16, 2018 Etobicoke York Community Council meeting, in accordance with the requirements of the Planning Act.

On December 5, 6 and 7, 2017, City Council adopted the recommendations of Etobicoke York Community Council.

This report responds to the direction of City Council, which includes the required implementation instruments to permit the proposed development.

City staff recommended refusal but community council amended that on Nov 14. Looks like there was a petition to support the development and Mammoliti attempted and succeeded to push this development through. It was then adopted by city council with no changes.

From Nov 14:

It hasn't been approved yet. What has happened is that Planning has been directed to prepare a final report, draft bylaw, and changes to the OPA which would pave the way for its approval at the next City Council meeting. There will still be one more chance for the public to comment at the next Community Council meeting before that though.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Hard to ignore some of these City staff comments: "The development as proposed uses a private road that doesn’t have sidewalks, staff said, as well as driveways that are legally too short to park a car."
