Toronto City Council began their July, 2022 meeting on the 19th, the last normal Council meeting before the 2018-2022 term ends. The meeting is packed with development applications so that new development is not held up entirely until after the election.

In this article, we will go over the fate of applications from the Toronto-East York section of the city that were dealt with quickly, with no debate, following their recommendation for approval at a recent Community Council meeting. Development applications from other sections of the city have been covered in their own articles, and we will follow up on the proposals that were held back in a subsequent story.
