Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update


Hi everyone!

Well another winter is almost gone. The beautiful flowers, green lawns and the glorious Markland trees are just around the corner. Over the past month, we have been working to arrange a suitable evening to host a MWHA sponsored community meeting on the proposed 240 Markland Dr. condominium. With residents being away, including our outside planning consultant and unavailable meeting spaces, it has been difficult. The arrangements have now been finalized for Wednesday, March 29 at St. Clement RC Church parish hall, starting at 7:30 p.m. Entrance is off the parking lot. I encourage all to attend. It is very important that you are informed about the latest design concept submitted to the City by the developer for approval, as well as the views of your MWHA Board & our own planning consultant. I also mentioned last month a second community meeting on the 240 Markland proposal. This one is required of the developer through the office of our City councillor Stephen Holyday. The date is worked out with the City Planning Department, and we have been waiting for them to decide. It is now expected in April. More information will follow.

World's Largest Garage Sale!

See a few photos from past Garage Sales held within the Markland Wood community. People come from great distances to shop at this event. "It's like a Garage Sale, Super Store." said one visitor to this annual event.

We were pleased to announce that UsedToronto.com (partners with Metroland Media) were our media sponsor in May 2014. This meant we had a quarter page ad in two issues of the Etobicoke Guardian and social media exposure through Twitter and Facebook. We had more foot traffic in May 2014 than in years prior! Each resident who set up for the Garage Sale that day received balloons from UsedToronto.com and they also had a booth set up.
