President's Update

Hello!

By the time you read this it will officially be spring, but that has certainly not brought with it the hopes and delights of that new season. This year has not been what I anticipated. I would have never imagined that we would be facing the challenges that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed on us and the entire world. They are calling this a global pandemic. This is causing our way of life to be dramatically changed for a period of time. The arrival of this virus is a huge challenge for us, our community, our country and beyond.

(Because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are making The Marklander March 2020 issue available in PDF format. If you would like to download a copy of The Marklander, follow this link: http://www.marklandwood.org/images/Marklander/PDF/Mar_2020.pdf)

240 Markland Drive Condo-Townhouse Proposal

on Wednesday, 06 June 2018.

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.
