I read in the Mirror or something similar (Post) that this development was rejected by the city yesterday.
Can someone please confirm if this is correct. I am assuming this will go to the OMB to be appealed. Discuss.
Toronto City Council adopted the report from North York Community Council today, so yes, the City will be sending its lawyer to the OMB to oppose the application.Confirmed. Except it wasn't yesterday,... the "North York Community Council" meeting was on January 19th.
Interestingly, developer/owner realize how outrageous the original proposal was and chopped it themselves! Realizing they still didn't have a snowball in hell,... the developer/owner OMB it before the North York Community Council meeting,.... weird strategies.
Anyways,... the developer/owner basically got a good-old-fashion-back-of-the-barn ass-whipping from city planning for proposing this high-density mid-rise development OUTSIDE of the North York Secondary Plan.
The appeal is based on the City's failure to make a decision within the allotted 120 day time frame. That doesn't mean that the City and developer wouldn't try to negotiate something before the hearing.So they went OMB first and then the city? So this proposal is off the books permanently?
Community Council doesn't decide the fate of applications. Community Council recommends to City Council whether or not to approve, and then City Council decides at the following meeting.Proposal is still on the books,..... just that developer/owner went to OMB BEFORE North York Community Council could decide. Developer/owner went to apply for OMB appeal in early December to complain city taking too long making decision on this application and to complain about the land zoning for this site,..... mainly that it should be part of North York Secondary Plan when it's not within the borders of North York Secondary Plan! Very odd strategies,.... OMB appeal date likely in 6-9 months,....
BTW, Interchange42,.... you should know by now that if I say something,... I can always back it up! So trust me when I say the developer chopped it themselves.

Instead of blustering "you should know by now", why not be helpful and actually explain what you mean? Your tone is not appreciated.
