What: Public meeting to discuss site plan proposals for 129 St. Clair Avenue W.

In February of this year I co-hosted a meeting with City Planning on development proposals at 111 and 129 St. Clair Avenue West. At that meeting, local residents requested that I strike a working group to have in-depth discussions on the proposals and to see if we could convince the developers to better reflect the community’s needs in what they will eventually submit. Since then, I have been working closely with representatives from the residents’ associations of Foxbar, Deer Park, Granite Place, South Hill, Forest Hill and the Bradgate Arms in a Working Group regarding the developers’ proposals for 111 and 129 St. Clair Avenue West. This Group, which I chaired, included City Staff, ratepayers and residents groups and the development applicants.
The residents of the working group still have serious concerns regarding the proposal for 111 St. Clair Ave West but have agreed on a plan for 129 St. Clair West that helps protect some of the heritage elements of the current church site and improves the public realm while protecting our neighbourhoods. However, it is important for me to hear your feedback before this agreement comes to city council.
I invite you to a meeting that will provide an opportunity to learn about and comment on the Working Group’s proposal for 129 St. Clair West and an update on 111 St. Clair Avenue West.
