The Nov. 5 LAPD hearing and a strategy meeting

Our community can directly influence the future of our neighbourhood. Capital Developments has appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board about supposed delays in approving their massive condo-project at Bloor/Dufferin.

A pre-hearing is being held Nov. 5 and we need to be there to make our views known:

Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (Toronto)

16th Floor,

655 Bay Street, 

Toronto ON

M5G 1E5

10 a.m.

Come out and see how our democracy works. We’ve heard from local planners that the bureaucracy actually pays attention to what the public says. And they have noted the extreme interest we have in proper re-development of our school lands on the south-west corner of Bloor and Dufferin.

If you can’t be there, contact Graham Frank. He’s the case co-ordinator for the pre-hearing. Tell him you are interested and would like to be updated on the hearing process:

Local Planning Appeal Tribunal

Graham Frank, Case Coordinator, Planner,

(416) 326-3047

Help us plan our strategy:

Build a Better Bloor Dufferin

Oct. 29

Working Women Community Centre

Bloor and Gladstone

6 p.m. 

(enter from the 533A Gladstone Ave. entrance)

If your have knowledge of the planning process or if you if you can attend the pre-hearing, come out and plan the best way to make our voices heard.
