Councillors concerned over future Tewin development but hesitate to reconsider

Full story

It's a concern echoed by Johnson.  

"We've got an asset management plan that shows a $3 billion problem we need to solve. We have a transit problem that's going to be $6.6 billion to solve. We have development charges that are serving more debt than ever before. We have a landfill problem," she said.

Survey: Potential Park Project on St. Claire Ave

Survey: Potential Park Project on St. Claire Ave

Fill out the survey

Since elected, I have heard from City View residents and the local community association about limited access to City parks close to home. 

Given the neighbourhood, a new park or green space can only be created if we reclaim land. The dead ends along the back of Merivale's commercial strip have long been considered a natural place to convert into useable green space.

The eastern segment of St. Claire Ave between 14 St. Claire Ave and Starwood Rd has been screened in by city staff as a potential location for conversation to a greenspace that can be used for passive recreation. Please note, that there are no residential properties fronting onto this segment. 

While we are in the earliest phases of investigating this possibility, should we proceed, formal approval from key City stakeholders (emergency response, public works, utilities, etc) and an Environmental Assessment would also be required. Costs are yet to be determined. But my office is prepared to do what it can to understand if this idea can become a reality! 

Please complete this survey to share your thoughts. Responses will be collected until August 30, 2024. My team will create a summary of the findings which will be shared in a report in September.
