Avenue Road & Lawrence – Community Consultation Meeting

The Preliminary Staff Report regarding First Capital’s proposal for the development of the northeast corner of Avenue Road and Lawrence was adopted by the North York Community Council at their meeting, September 10, 2020.

The next step is the Community Consultation Meeting which has now been scheduled for the evening of Thursday October 22, 2020.  The meeting will be organized and led by the city, virtually, with the developer, our Councillor Mike Colle, and all interested parties in attendance.

The public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input about the proposal.  BPRO Board members will be in attendance.  Our focus will be on four areas of concern:  pedestrian safety and traffic congestion at an already busy intersection, parkland/greenspace, building height and inadequate upper level setbacks and improvements to the Douglas Greenbelt ravine.

Together with our neighbouring resident organizations we will lobby hard to ensure this development is built to serve our community in the best possible way.

Specific details about the meeting, will be posted here as soon as they are known.
