President's Update

Summertime and the living is easy...

I am so looking forward to those lazy, hazy days of summer! I just love summer! I hope you do too! It is a time to relax and enjoy family and friends by the pool, at the cottage, or barbecuing in the backyard. Perhaps travel is on your agenda this summer. Whatever your plans are, I hope you enjoy this wonderful season.

The MWHA has had a very busy schedule this year and especially this past month. In May we held several events: the All-Candidates Meeting for the provincial election, our Annual Garage Sale, a Community Safety evening, and the meeting of the Etobicoke York Community Council for the rezoning application for 240 Markland Drive. For all those members of the community who came out to these events, our sincerest thanks. I would especially like to thank those residents who came to support the MWHA at the Etobicoke York Community Council meeting on June 6th. What a tremendous turnout!

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.
