A number of developments in and around the Broadview Corridor have been appealed by developers to the Province's Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT).
Many of you have been following development applications that were made through the City's standard planning process. However once an appeal has been filed it leaves the City's process and is dealt with at the provincial level. It can be challenging to understand the impact an appeal has on a planning application, how appeals get handled and how final decisions are made. Some of these appeals are complicated and are related to the Broadview Planning Study which was passed in 2016.
I am hosting a virtual information session on January 27th where I will be joined by staff from City Legal who will provide an overview of the appeal process and speak to each of the following appeals:
- 954, 956, 958 Broadview Avenue and 72 Chester Hill Road (formerly Estonian House)
- 1132 Broadview Avenue (Salvation Army)
- 995-1001, 1003 & 1005 Broadview Ave, and 2-4 Mortimer Ave (formerly Whistler's)**
- 5-19 Cosburn Avenue and 8-40 Gowan Avenue
**An update will be provided on the settlement that was reached on the former Whistler's site as well as the recent Site Plan Application.
I have also asked City staff to tell you a little bit about the Major Transit Station Assessment work that will start soon for Broadview Station.
Please join me on January 27th by registering at the Zoom link above.
Following the updates there will be ample opportunity for you to ask questions. It is very important to understand this meeting is to discuss the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) appeal process and procedure, including what options are available to the City. It is not to discuss the position of City Planning or City Legal with respect to the mediation nor is it to discuss any of the positions taken by the applicants. All of that information is strictly confidential.
I hope you are able to join me for these important updates.
