Development Application for Stack Townshomes in KC

On Council agenda for June 29 there is the public meeting for an application for a development on King Road just west of the King City library.  The application is for a development consisting of 20 stacked townhomes; plan is for two blocks, each containing 10 units and measuring 4 stories.  There was a developer hosted open house March 3rd.  This meeting is the statutory public meeting where Staff presents its report, the developer makes a presentation and Council is able to ask questions; no decision is made at this meeting. In addition, very importantly this is when the  public can ask questions and/or make deputations.  This meeting will be a virtual one and it will live streamed. Details how to provide information is outlined in paragraph further below. Given information in the Staff report I have a very positive response to this application.  Being on King Road, in vicinity of 2 public schools and on a existant York Region Transit route I cannot imagine a site being more appropriate for medium density.  The aesthetics of the development are very attractive and fitting for King City.  Given its location I am comfortable with the proposed 4 storeys; per our new Official Plan (One King) which is not yet in force, 4-6 stories are identified as being feasible in the “right” circumstances. This location is “right:  a school behind, an arterial road in front, a library on one side and a comparable new development proposed on the other side.
