This blog was set up by neighbours concerned about development on this site. There is currently a proposal to build seven four storey units (six semis and one single) that would greatly reduce public views of the lake, is partially on green space and lakeside "hazardous lands" and is totally out of character with the neighbourhood. This would require a huge amendment to Toronto's Official Plan and zoning by-laws.

CITY REFUSES TO OBJECT TO PARKLAND GRAB

The City Solicitor informed the community on July 5th, 2010, just hours before the deadline for submitting objections to Dunpar's application for absolute title, that the City "has no legal grounds to object".


In spite of the City having put parkland zoning on the southern portion of the property and the evidence from many City planning maps that shows that there is a continuous swath of parkland running from Prince of Wales Park along the shore, the City is saying that they can't find the paperwork!!!


Not only that, but the Mayor's own Community Liaison Officer has refused an invitation to come out to the community and explain just why the City shows waterfront land on this and adjacent properties as parkland yet seems willing to hand it over to this developer without a fight.  The City recently paid $4 million to expropriate a similar size shoreline piece to complete the linear park in Mimico.  The people already have a claim on this piece.  Go figure!

WE ONLY GET ONE CHANCE TO GET THE WATERFRONT RIGHT AND THE CITY SEEMS TO BLOW IT ALMOST EVERY TIME!
