McGregor Farm Proposal
At the South East corner of Bathurst and Davis there is a large former farm that measures approximately 11.7 hectares in area. The farm was recently purchased by a developer for a proposed residential development.
There will be a series of public meetings associated with this piece of land. The owner did meet with adjacent neighbours on Wednesday March 28th - I facilitated that meeting. It was an opportunity for neighbours to share preliminary thoughts and opinions prior to the submission of a plan. Below I have a .pdf that you can download to view the concept plan presented at the meeting. I have also articulated some of the preliminary comments from neighbours and have also outlined some questions in which I will be providing answers for shortly.
I invite you to check back to this page for updates, also, I will be emailing the community on an ongoing basis as timelines, public meetings, or changes with respect to the application occur.
Initial Comments/Themes from residents:
-Does not reflect 'like to like' concept as articulated in the official plan
-Questions/concerns around traffic movement/infiltration
-Preservation of trees (both during development and post development)
-Placement of park (many wanted moved away from corner)
-Impact on Oak Ridges Moraine (justification or how can it be done?)
-Population impact on local schools
-Will Region of York allow for signalization of intersection?
-Will there be sidewalks proposed for North of Sykes?
-Pie shaped lots on Mathews Court that back onto multiple homes
-Can residents build fences larger than 6' tall? If so how?
The above is only a snapshot of comments/themes that emerged. There will be ample opportunity to express comments/thoughts/ideas throughout the application process.
Thank you to the residents that came out to the meeting, I believe we had over 75. Also, appreciate Paul Bailey and his team in making themselves available to listen to the public outside of a statutory public meeting.
I will update this page as more information becomes available. Please feel free to share your comments with me at email@example.com
At our recent neighbourhood meeting the proponent of the development proposal presented a revised plan that better reflected a 'like to like' scenario with 50' lots along the fenceline. There were many questions that arose regarding tree removals.
Since our last meeting at the Ray Twinney Complex the proponent has provided maps indicating which trees may be affected with the plan. I have the attached aerials provided below for the Oct 29th public meeting at 7pm in the Council Chambers at 395 Mulock Dr.
Also, the proponent has placed yellow ribbons ont he trees that are slated for removal. This way we can better discuss the proposal at the meeting.
