Stateview Subdivision Agreement

On September 13 Council agenda there is a report with the proposed subdivision agreement to enable the development southeast of Keele and Dennison i.e.  Stateview Homes. This development was approved by Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) (formerly called OMB and then LPAT) June 2021.  This development has been very contentious and I have certainly posted a number of times as it has gone through the process. The details as to what the development will actually look like have yet to be finalized; this will occur in the site plan which will be brought to Council in the future for approval. The site plan is well underway; in the last week the developer, planning staff, interested public, Mayor and King City Councillors met to review and discuss a draft.

Sign Bylaw Variance Application

On September 13 Council agenda there is a report from Bylaw recommending that a variance request for a sign should NOT be approved. I fully endorse their recommendation. The requested variance is for placement erection of a sign on Weston Rd in king Township for a business which operates outside the Township.  I am curious to know if the sign has been in place while the variance application has been processed.

New Traffic Signals

York Region is making some very welcomed changes: traffic signals are being installed at the intersections of Davis drive and Dufferin and at the 17th Sideroad and Keele. To improve traffic flow. I am particularly pleased about 17th Sideroad/Keele as over the last few years I have heard from constituents that traversing this intersection safely was a concern. Work is in process and is scheduled to be completed by November 2021. The intersections will be opened duringconstruction but traffic may be limited to one lane only.
