Western Light Rail Transit Corridor: Update June 13, 2013

From Katherine Hobbs:

Dear Neighbours,

Today we announced a refined design for the western extension of the Confederation Line LRT which serves Kitchissippi. I have secured $80 million in design changes including burying the line near residences, enhancing access to the pathways, and a new green roof on Cleary Station. The changes go a long way toward a plan that works for Kitchissippi residents. Please be sure to watch this video to learn all about the design for this critical piece of city transit infrastructure for our community:

Information Session: Update on the Ontario Municipal Board Appeal Against the Infill Zoning By-law Amendment

Monday, June 17, 2013

7 to 8:30 p.m., Presentation at 7:30 p.m.

City Hall, Champlain Room

110 Laurier Avenue West


The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) appeal against the Infill Zoning By-law 2012-147 that was adopted by City Council on May 9, 2012, and subsequently amended by By-laws 2012-347 and 2012-348. The Infill Zoning By-law affects all residentially-zoned lands located within Wards 12, 14, 15, 17 and part of Ward 13.

The OMB issued an Interim Order directing City staff to document specific attributes that, in part, assist in the creation of neighbourhood character within those areas affected specifically by Infill By-law 2012-147, as amended.
