215 Main Street Schomberg Development

On Council September 23 agenda there is a report for a site plan development application in Schomberg at 215 Main St.  From my reading there are some very positive aspects to this application:  4 purpose built apartments of which 2 are intended to meet the York Region threshold of being affordable; and the report indicates that there will be adequate parking for both the residential and the commercial.  In addition it sounds like this application will set the stage for resolving the ambiguity of the Lions Park boundaries which will then allow for the park to be properly developed.  The proposed architecture indicates that this project will be a valuable addition to the historic Main Street but I do wonder about the height; I think it could be improved if something was done creatively with the glazing e.g.  transom windows to break up the wall of glass at street level.  I will be asking questions about the process that this application has gone through to date; for example I don’t understand how the development has already been granted a couple minor variances.

    Curious – 4 apartments ? For 4 families?

      Don’t really understand your question….are you asking if the apartments are for families i.e 2 adults and 1 or 2 kids? If that is your question I don’t know the answer. Suggest you call the Planner.
