Report impacting UHN lands at the Planning and Housing Committee

PH 17.4 Creating New Supportive Housing Opportunities in Parkdale in Partnership with the University Health Network and United Way of Greater Toronto.

The October 20th, 2020, Planning and Housing Committee will be reviewing a report impacting UHN lands at 150 Dunn Avenue (Including 74, 82, 130, 160, and 162 Dunn Avenue, 1-17 Close Avenue, and 74 and 78 Springhurst Avenue) .

The Report, prepared by the Executive Director, Housing Secretariat, outlines a framework to begin a housing partnership and create new permanent supportive housing on the UHN site by the City of Toronto, United Way and UHN. The proposal commits to a community inclusive process.

The Staff Report is available for your review at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2020.PH17.4 

I will be reviewing the Staff Report in detail and will take into consideration comments from Housing and Planning staff, and the community. The community has been very concerned about current housing issues on this site and I will be paying close attention to those issues.

I ask that you review the details of the report and share your questions and comments with my office: councillor_perks@toronto.ca , 416-392-7919.

Due to the pandemic, civic buildings are closed to the public and meetings of the Toronto and East York Community Council are currently being conducted by electronic means.
