Supporting Eglinton

As your local Councillor and TTC Chair, I have advocated for transit improvements and investments for our community.  Our efforts have been successful and have resulted in an historic transit investment on Eglinton Avenue and a station at Oakwood Avenue.  The transformation of Eglinton is long overdue but has understandably been challenging for our local businesses and residents.

Columbus Centre updates

Over the past year, I have been standing with our community in opposing the demolition of the Columbus Centre.  In an effort to preserve this cherished institution, we have had City Council:

  • Oppose Villa Charities' redevelopment application at the OMB
  • Request Villa Charities to preserve a swimming pool, running track, Centro Scuola, Art Gallery, and the Italian Fallen Soldiers Memorial in any redevelopment plans
  • Conduct a Heritage Review of the Columbus Centre buildings
  • Request Villa Charities to conduct community consultation to hear our community's voice

Baycrest Park Improvements Public Meeting

Update on 36 & 37 Jane Osler Boulevard and 42 & 44 Cartwright Avenue development application

Dear Neighbours,

As you may know, the two-part Zoning By-law Amendments and Draft Plan of Subdivision application for 36 & 37 Jane Osler Boulevard and 42 & 44 Cartwright Avenue has been in review for the last few years.

Over the years, we have used community input to drastically reduce the size and impact of this proposal.  The current proposal looks to build eight detached homes on Jane Osler Boulevard.  On January 16th 2018, the North York Community Council (NYCC) discussed this application, deferring the final decision to City Council at the end of January 2018.
