City Planning held a Community Consultation meeting on February 8th, 2017 to review the 57 Brock Avenue application for a rezoning and Official Plan amendment.
The community raised many of the same concerns that were raised at the pre-application in 2016: massing, height, privacy, impact on local traffic and parking, lack of green space, and the ability of this proposal to integrate with the surrounding neighbourhood visually and otherwise.
While City Planning review the amended application the applicant has filed for decision at the Ontario Municipal Board.
An OMB hearing date has not yet been scheduled.
City Planning will submit a Request for Direction to the February 22nd TEYCC meeting to request City staff attend the OMB hearing.
More information on 57 Brock Ave can be found on the Toronto Development Application website here and my office will send further information as it becomes available.
