NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
WHEN: Tuesday, April 30th, 2013, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
WHERE: The York Junior School Gymnasium, 1639 Yonge Street
SUBJECT: The proposed redevelopment of 1331 Yonge Street
I would like to invite you and your neighbours to an important community information meeting, regarding a development application for 1331 Yonge Street – the former CHUM site. Keeping residents engaged and informed is a priority for me.
The original plan for this site was for a 13 storey condo building with 214 units. As a result of the hard work and advocacy from many in the community, including the strong showing at the two previous public meetings I held, the developer is now submitting a revised plan for an 11 storey condo building with 153 units. We have also pressed the developer into stepping back the development, such that the building is now a proposed 7 storeys at the corner of Jackes and Yonge. While the building is significantly improved, we will keep pushing to lower the height further.
The primary purpose of this meeting is to discuss traffic and safety concerns regarding the proposed development. I have heard from many in the neighbourhood that they are worried that emergency vehicles will not be able to access the buildings on Jackes Ave. That’s why I have asked representatives from City Fire, Ambulance and Transportation Services, along with our local planner, to discuss these important matters.
I encourage you and your neighbours to learn more about the proposal, especially in regards to the traffic and emergency services impacts. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to City staff and the applicants. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday April 30th at 7:00 pm.
