NE King City Developments: Public Meeting

At May 7 Council there is the statutory public meeting for the development applications for subdivisions in the north east quadrant of King City  (south of 15th SDRD/west of Dufferin.) This is important project for King as current plans include 1,100 units (124 townhouses, remainder single detached.) As the new LPAT regulations are now in force it is important that anyone with concerns identify them at this public meeting as it is difficult, at best, to introduce new issues later.  You can register your concerns by either making a deputation at the public meeting or emailing your concerns to the Clerk ([email protected])

  • I continue to challenge the low number of townhouses.  We need a greater variety of housing stock in King City. The project does have a variety of size of single lots (12.8-21.3 m  (42-70 ft)frontages) but they are still single family lots.  A welcomed non standard offering is 77 of the 124 townhouses are described as being “lifestyle condominium.”
  • At earlier meetings about this project the rich natural heritage (particularly the wetlands and watercourses) of this site has been talked about. The recent report (March 16,2018) from TRCA (beginning page 40 of 78 in the Staff report) demonstrates that the project is not getting a “rubber stamp of approval” from the conservation authority.  As indicated there are important issues still to be resolved.
  • The Staff report indicates that there are issues still to be addressed re: some of the lot configurations and roads.

As I said earlier, its important to register concerns at this public meeting.  You can do so by either making a deputation at the public meeting or emailing your concerns to the Clerk ([email protected]).
