President's Update

Happy New Year!,

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. It’s hard to believe that we are into another year! It certainly feels like time is speeding up!

At least it does to me. Do others feel the same way? Time flies….so they say!

First of all, I would like to thank Martin Ross and all the volunteers who came to help with our Annual Christmas Caravan in December. It was a great event and once again we witnessed the generous spirit of the Markland Wood community. We thank you for your contributions and we truly appreciate your response to the needs of others.

The MWHA has several issues that we are constantly monitoring. We usually communicate these to the community through email blasts. Markland Watch does an incredible job of informing us about some of these issues such as coyote sightings, car thefts, break-ins, etc.

240 Markland Drive Condo-Townhouse Proposal

UPDATE: 240 Markland Drive Proposed Development

On June 6th, the Council Chambers at Etobicoke Civic Center was overflowing with Markland residents concerned about the status of the 240 Markland Drive rezoning proposal. Since 2011, four building proposal iterations were submitted by the developer. The City Planning department seemed to be satisfied that the latest revision was close to being compliant to the Official City Plan for Apartment Neighbourhoods. The Planning department crafted a positive report that they presented to City Council. They recommended the proposal be accepted for the property to be rezoned. Since the developer appealed the project to the Ontario Municipal Board in December 2017, this was a request for guidance from the City Planning Department to the City Council. The agenda was tabled for June 6th, where 11 Etobicoke/York City Councillors would accept or reject the Planning report to recommend a rezoning change.
