President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

Spring is finally here and Markland Wood is in full bloom so get out and enjoy this lovely spring weather!

It is so wonderful to see our community come alive after a very long and cold winter. As everyone knows, the Markland spring rite includes our Annual Garage Sale. This year it takes place on Saturday, May 30th so start your spring cleaning now and get rid of that clutter that has been piling up all winter!

On April 26th, we held our first “Circle of Friends” Breakfast at the Markland Wood Golf Club. Our thanks to the community members who joined us. We enjoyed a lovely buffet breakfast while getting to know some of our neighbours. The next breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 24th between 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon at the Markland Wood Golf Club. We would love to have you and your family join us again. Invite your friends as well.

240 Markland Drive Condo-Townhouse Proposal

on Monday, 25 May 2015.

Monday May 25, 2015 - Special Community Meeting - New Condo Bldgs on Bloor-Markland

240 MARKLAND DRIVE DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL
IT’S NOT OVER!!!

A revised development proposal has been submitted to city planning.

Your MWHA believes that approval of the current high rise proposal is precedent setting due to its size and density. It’s of major concern for our community since an approved unprecedented high rise development at 240 Markland Drive could also allow three or more additional high rise towers next to the existing apartment buildings at 210 (Fairview Towers), 265 (Mikado Apartments) and 287 (The Coach House) Markland Drive.

SPECIAL COMMUNITY MEETING

MONDAY, MAY 25 at 7:00 p.m.

ST. CLEMENT CATHOLIC CHURCH (Parish Hall)

Please join us and our invited guest Councillor Stephen Holyday for a special community meeting to hear more about this revised proposal and to let your Markland Wood Homeowners Association know what you as a community think of this development and what you would like the Association to do on your behalf with respect to this development, going forward.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND THIS MEETING YOU CAN STILL LET US AND OUR COUNCILLOR KNOW YOUR VIEW BY CONTACTING US AT:

Christmas Caravan 2014

on Sunday, 14 December 2014.

Christmas Caravan 2014

Caravan 2014 was again a huge success and the residents of Markland should be very proud for being able to help so many. The day was beautiful and the donations plentiful.

Close to 18,000 lbs. of food, a truckload of clothes and almost $1,000.00 in cash. One of our biggest yet!

Our recipients were the Brothers of the Good Shepherd, The Scott Mission and the Daily Bread Food Bank. The clothing was donated to Goodwill of Toronto. Monies were distributed to The Toronto Star Santa Fund and house wares donated to the Furniture Bank.
