2265-79 Bloor St. W. Development Proposal Hosted by your 4 local Residents Associations Tuesday, December 16, 2014 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm) at RUNNYMEDE UNITED CHURCH (Runnymede north of Bloor)
See attached notice for more information:
The development proposed for the southwest corner of Bloor & Durie will set the precedent for all future developments in the Village and could be approved as early as January by the Ontario Municipal Board.
If you love this neighbourhood and want to see community input into this development, then act now!
• PLEASE DONATE to Save Our Village (www.saveourvillage.ca) to help raise $30,000 to pay for legal and planning professionals to represent residents’ interests at the January OMB hearing for this development
• Spread the word about this development and fundraising effort.
Facts about the Bloor/Durie Development Proposal:
• When a developer goes to the OMB, the OMB will frequently approve a development – even in a case such as this where both the City and residents oppose the development and argue against it at the OMB hearing.
• This development will set a precedent for future developments in Bloor West Village. It could also set a precedent for developers believing that the way to conduct business in Bloor West Village is to simply ignore residents and take their proposals straight to the OMB.
• The City and local residents’ associations have opposed this proposal, and will argue against it at the January OMB hearing, citing that the proposed building:
o is 9-‐stories tall + mechanical in a location that is currently zoned for up to 4-‐stories
o has no set-‐back to provide relief from the shadowing of the sidewalks on both sides of Bloor St. o encroaches on the neighbourhood to the South, calling for demolition of a house in Swansea o offers a design that does not respect the character of the neighbourhood
• Additional concerns:
o crowding in local public schools
o increased traffic, and
o increased pressure on transit
• Local residents’ associations have had past success at the OMB and we have solid legal and planning arguments to put before the OMB that we believe will improve this development.
