Site plan application submitted for 730 & 760 Brant St.

730 & 760 Brant 2Public Meeting #2: Tues., Sept. 22, 7 p.m., 760 Brant St.

Cherishome Living has submitted a formal site plan application for the redevelopment of 730 Brant St., and the southerly portion of 760 Brant St. (Site Plan – 730 & 760 Brant Street).

I will be hosting a second public meeting to give residents an opportunity to view the revised plans and provide feedback:

Date: Tues., Sept. 22, 2015
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: 760 Brant St.

The applicant will present their formal plans and city planner, Charles Mulay, will go over the planning process and timelines.

The application is similar to what residents were presented with at the April 15th public meeting:  a 4-storey building with 146 residential units and 7 commercial units along Brant Street. One significant change is the driveway location has moved to Brant Street, whereas the preliminary drawings showed the driveway on Hyde Road.

The application fits within the existing Official Plan. Some minor amendments to the zoning regulations may have to go before the Committee of Adjustment for approval. Residents within 60m will receive a letter in the mail from the Committee of Adjustment if minor variances are necessary. City planning and zoning staff are still reviewing the application to determine what, if any, minor variances will be necessary.

More than 75 residents attend public meeting on 730/760 Brant redevelopment

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
