Over the past week, I invited #CollegeWard residents to let me know their thoughts about Lansdowne 2.0 via an online survey. Over 450 people responded. Here’s what I asked, and what they told me.
About 15% of residents fully support the current proposal, while 37% are completely opposed. 44% “support some aspects of the proposal but not all”.
What do these people want to see change? Primarily, less debt from the City and greater contribution to affordable housing. (We’ll dig into “other changes” over the next few days and report back).
These results strengthen my own resolve that any final deal includes affordable housing and limited financial risk for taxpayers. This plan must work for everyone.
