I'm inclined to agree with him.He’s not very complementary on the planners’ attitude towards the report. And in fact, the summary doesn’t make strong recommendations for change: it asks for more studies around options for increasing the missing middle:
There are somethings that require some measure of planning/phasing (for instance, if one wanted missing middle on major roads where subdivisions currently turn their back on the main road, lot depth often precludes viable redevelopment.
So there is a need for a larger re-think.
That said, Council could at least waive minimum parking requirements for smaller buildings city-wide; and all buildings in the old City of Toronto effective immediately.
Even one, up-front, grand gesture would be useful and welcome.
The report is too vague/wishy-washy..
