RE: Ontario Line – Maintenance Service Facility (MSF)
This joint communication from the Leaside Business Park Association and the Leaside Residents Association is to indicate our interest in the progress of the Ontario Line in the North Section through Thornclife Park, Flemingdon Park and Leaside Business Park. In particular, the October 6, 2020 blog upload has a map which denotes “Maintenance Service Facility Study Area”, to be located in the south end of the Leaside Business Park.
We are supportive in principle of such a Facility in the Park, but we expect that there would be several impacts, positive and negative, that need to be understood and assessed. We would appreciate an opportunity to understand what is being proposed, and discuss with Metrolinx planners.
