701-713 Soudan Ave. Public Meeting – May 16, 2016

WHEN:        Monday, May 16 at 7pm
WHERE:      Hodgson Senior P.S. Gymnasium, 282 Davisville Ave
SUBJECT:    Revised Development Proposal for 701-713 Soudan Avenue, 1674-1684 Bayview Avenue and 720 Hillsdale Avenue East

Dear Resident,

As your local councillor*, keeping residents informed and engaged is a priority for me. I have heard from many residents who are interested in receiving more information regarding the re-zoning application for 701-713 Soudan Avenue, 1674-1684 Bayview Avenue and 720 Hillsdale Avenue East. Like myself, many of you were opposed to the development plan for this site that was presented at the statutory community meeting in 2015. As a result, the developer has made revisions to their original proposal. I would like to invite you and your neighbours to an important meeting to discuss this revised plan.

This revised proposal has yet to be submitted to City of Toronto staff for review.

I have asked the applicant to meet with local residents directly to discuss their revised plans in detail, and they have agreed to attend this public meeting. City Planning staff will also be in attendance to answer technical questions pertaining to the revised development plan.

I look forward to meeting you and your neighbours on Monday, May 16 at 7pm to discuss this proposal in greater detail.

Sincerely,

Josh Matlow
Toronto City Councillor
Ward 22 – St. Paul’s

*Please note: this notice is from Josh Matlow, Ward 22’s councillor and concerns the development on the west side of Bayview at Soudan. Bayview is the boundary between Wards 22 and Ward 26, and as this development could set a precedent for all of Bayview, we (LPOA and Leaside residents) have been participating in meetings and following the progress of the development proposal. We urge you to attend the meeting and voice your concerns.
