City staff are recommending approval of a Zoning By-law Amendment application by Rosedale Properties to permit three homes to be built at 2267 Lakeshore Road, in place of the single family dwelling that exists there now.

Yard abutting a rear building elevation                6.0 m

My Take:  This proposal is a significant improvement over the initial five-home plan, and subsequent four-home plan. I appreciate the developer listening to the concerns of residents and working with city staff to submit a project that is more in keeping with existing lot patterns in the area, reduces the lot coverage and increases setbacks from neighbouring homes.
