Here is proof that community engagement can make a difference!
Canada Lands Company had initially planned to submit a zoning change application to the city this summer based on the plan they unveiled in June. However, as a result of the significant feedback received, including from residents from the Glebe Annex and Dow’s Lake, as well as from Councillor Menard, they are now planning to go back to their consultant and architect to assess the proposed plan.
They expect to revise the plans and meet back with the community this fall on the changes. We’re not sure how significant the amendments will be – Canada Lands has cautioned us that the changes probably won’t be massive – but they have heard our concerns about height and light, and we remain hopeful to see some positive changes.
Thanks to those who provided input and feedback!
