And at the meeting tonight, there were about three dozen residents out. Typical presentation from Planning to start with a confusing set of overlapping land use restrictions as set out in the Official Plan, a new Secondary Plan under appeal to the OMB, and the amendment applications for this development. Standards questions from the audience about why the developer is asking for certain things that don't follow the Secondary Plan that's been worked out, (essentially things that have it larger than the Secondary Plan foresees,), why they want to detour the Greenway planned for the area, what will be the shadowing effect of the development on properties across the rail corridor to the east (not well answered at the meeting), offsite park dedication, and traffic and parking issues naturally. The amount of parking space for Metrolinx's Mimico GO Station will be impacted somewhat by this development, so they should have been at the meeting, but of course they were not.
The community went through a public meeting recently for the larger Freed development to the east which differs more from the Secondary Plan, (I didn't make to to that meeting), so unsurprisingly locals are feeling rather tentative about the additional proposed density for their streets.
No changes to the proposal that I noted at this point, but we do have a couple of high quality renderings now.
