Community Meeting March 18th

Hello CCQLD Members,

I hope you can make this meeting at Malvern Collegiate.  It is being hosted by Build Toronto and the purpose is to solicit feedback from the community on Build’s plans for the Quarry Lands, specifically, how best to utilize the generous park lands  to make this development a truly special place. I’ve included their invitation in case you didn’t get one. (see the link below)

The head of Planning for the city of Toronto, Jennifer Keesmat, met last month with the CCQLD Board and we were very encouraged by her support and insight. She promised to do her very best to encourage GCD, which owns the rights to build condominium towers on the eastern portion of the lands to join us in coming up with a better alternative for our community.  Even though GCD’s rights have been upheld by the OMB, we have not run out of options, not by a long shot, and it’s nice to have the Chief Planner behind us as we continue our fight.

In the meantime, let’s turn our focus to the Western portion and the Build Plan and help them make this the best it can be.

Hope to see you on the 18th.

Tim Weber

President CCQLD
