On Tuesday November 10th, the rezoning application for the John Street project will be considered at Etobicoke York Community Council.
After more than four years of proposals, community consultations, planning, and studies, the Executive of the Weston Village Association invites all community members to participate in the final consideration of the application. Please note that community members who wish to provide deputations at the meeting must notify the city clerk in advance; please see the attached PDF for details. Community Council also accepts written submissions. See the attachment for details on how to submit your thoughts in writing.
The Executive of WVRA has attended every meeting regarding this project from its inception. After having weighed all of the pros and cons of the proposal as well as other likely potential scenarios for the development of the lot, the Executive of the WVRA has expressed support for the application. The October 7th meeting at Weston Collegiate regarding this application received a broad, solid endorsement of the proposal from those present as well. Many community members also voiced their reservations and opposition to the project.
You are are encouraged to voice your opinion at the Council meeting. It is important that your voice be heard whether it be of support or opposition. The link to the 52-page report can be found below. Please do not assume that someone else will present a deputation that will speak for you. As is often the case with development proposals, voices in opposition will certainly speak at the meeting. It is important that those in support of the project also make their voice heard so that a truly representative sample and discussion is made clear to Community Council. Too often, silent majorities remain too silent.
