The Davisville apartment neighbourhood between Davisville and Merton, and Yonge to Mt. Pleasant was originally designed as a classic tower-in-the-park community. The high density slab buildings were buffered by generous green spaces. That vision is unfortunately now under threat.
Since the Provincial government ripped up the City’s Midtown in Focus plan and put in place their own developer-friendly regime, there has been an unprecedented number of applications for new apartments and condos in the Davisville apartment neighbourhood. Encouraged by Doug Ford’s new rules which allow taller buildings and less community benefits, there has been a high number of applications in our area in 2020. That’s why I started a campaign last year demanding the Province reverse the changes to our Midtown in Focus Plan https://joshmatlow.ca/local-planning-now-2/
To provide you with further information about how our community is being shaped and how we can work together to mitigate development impacts, I am holding a Town Hall focused specifically on planning in Davisville Village.
I have invited the Midtown Section City Planning staff who are responsible for reviewing development applications and working on strategic planning for the Davisville Apartment Neighbourhood. They will be there to explain the planning process and provincial changes in greater detail, answer your questions, and most importantly, it’s an opportunity for you to share your priorities directly to the City. The South Eglinton Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association, who undertake a tremendous amount of advocacy to support a strong quality of life for Midtown residents, will also be joining the panel discussion.
