For ease of reading, I have copied the text of my meeting notice below:
NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
WHEN: Wednesday, May 1st, 2013, from 7:30 to 9:30 pm
WHERE: The First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto, 175 St. Clair West
SUBJECT: The proposed redevelopment of 282 St. Clair West
I would like to invite you and your neighbours to an important community information meeting, regarding a development application for 282 St. Clair Ave. West. Keeping residents engaged and informed is a priority for me.
The original plan for this site was for an 11 storey condo building with 136 units. As a result of the hard work and advocacy from many in the community, including the strong showing at the previous public meeting I held, the developer is now submitting a revised plan for a 9 storey condo building with a maximum of 118 units. We have also pressed the developer into providing a more appropriate transition to the neighbourhood to the east and north of the site, additional set-backs and terracing off St. Clair, increased sidewalk width, retention of mature trees on Parkwood and improved landscaping.
There is still more work to be done. For example, I am working with City Planning toward a further reduction in units.
I encourage you and your neighbours to learn more about the proposal. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to City staff and the applicants. I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday May 1st at 7:30 pm.
Toronto City Councillor
Ward 22 – St. Paul’s
