Development News

January 21, 2017 - On January 20, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) made its final decision on the application at 2700 Aquitaine.  The board has approved development of  3 apartment buildings of 12, 9 and 7 storeys comprised of 393 new units.  With removal of 112 of the garden home units, the final number will be 616 units.   In all of the proposals and the final approved plan, the towers are joined by 4 or 5 storey podium buildings.   I am not happy with the decision nor with the development as it will set a precedent for further applications to ignore our Intensification Policies and our Official Plan.  The OMB decision shows again that the province of Ontario has taken the planning of our cities out of the hands of the elected officials and put it into the hands of an appointed body that has no connection to the community.  Click here to see the final site plan.

I already have meetings scheduled with other landowners who are bringing us proposals that far exceed what is in the City policies.  I will be opposing them also and will hold public information sessions in the coming months.   There are several other development applications in the works in our ward.  Please click on the tab "City Info" above and then "Development" for details and to view the various site plans.
