The South Forest Hill Residents Association (SFHRA) has asked that I share the following message with you regarding this inappropriate development proposal:
Forest Hill Village is Under Attack!
More than 60 local residents attended the pre-OMB hearing on March 1st forcing the OMB to move the proceedings to their largest room. South Forest Hill Residents Association (SFHRA) was well represented by lawyer, Peter Carey, who was successful in securing our “party” status at the OMB.
No date has been set for the OMB hearing itself. Instead, a second pre-hearing date has been set for August 8th to review any revisions to the developer’s plan and determine next steps. In order to prepare for this meeting, SFHRA needs to hire their own experts to counter the aggressive and well-financed attack by the Armel Corporation and their partners.
We have our work cut out for us! Did you know the OMB rules 64% of the time against communities and only 36% in favour of communities? The community can only win this with the support of each member of the community.
Fundraising has begun with a goal to raise $65,000 to prevent the destruction of the Village. You can help by donating generously:
