422-436 Roncesvalles Avenue and 76 Howard Park Ave Community Meeting Reminder

Posted on October 12, 2016

Just a friendly reminder about this upcoming public meeting, please share with your neighbours:

Community Meeting on October 19th, 7-9 PM
St Casimir’s Parish Hall, 156 Roncesvalles Avenue


I have been advised by City Legal and City Planning that the developers of 422-436 Roncesvalles Avenue and 76 Howard Park Avenue have requested to participate in mediation at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) prior to their hearing date.

Earlier this year, my office was advised that the developer applied to the OMB for a hearing. A 4-day hearing was scheduled by the OMB beginning January 24, 2017. (This is a REVISED DATE set by the OMB.) There is no scheduled pre-hearing at this time.

City Planning will be bringing a Staff Report to the November Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) Meeting requesting City Council to authorize the City Solicitor and appropriate staff to attend the OMB hearing.

With the request for mediation from the developer, the OMB will now decide if a pre-hearing needs to be scheduled, at which time interested party members can request status to participate in the mediation, or if the OMB will go directly to a mediation. This decision is still outstanding.

If a prehearing is scheduled, my office will advise the community once the date is set.

If it goes directly to a mediation, it would be heard by a member of the OMB and would include the developer and interested parties.

The City of Toronto is registered as an interested party and would request that community representatives have an opportunity to participate in the mediation process.

I am holding a Community Meeting to discuss the process for mediation at the OMB, to get feedback on community representation at the mediation and to answer any questions you may have about this development application through the City Planning and the OMB process.

The meeting will be held on October 19th from 7-9 PM at St Casimir’s Parish Hall, 156 Roncesvalles Avenue. City Planning Staff will also be in attendance.

Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions or require any further information.
