Statement: Community Consultation for 2313-2323 Lake Shore Boulevard West

Dear Neighbour,

Yesterday evening the City held a community consultation to discuss the development application for 2313 and 2323 Lake Shore Boulevard West (Shoreline Towers). I would like to thank everyone who attended and took the time to ask questions and share your concerns with both the applicant and City Planning staff.

I would like to reiterate what I said last night: I do not support this application in any way, shape or form. Long-time residents of Mimico can appreciate the time and effort that had been spent on creating the Mimico 20/20 Secondary Plan. We have all worked tirelessly on building a revitalization strategy that speaks to the needs of current and future residents of Mimico and in no way does this application reflect the fundamentals of the plan we worked so hard on.

I will continue to support my community and will hold as many public consultations as necessary to deal with this application. We will not let developers plan our community, we will plan our community.

If you would like to comment, receive notifications or ask questions regarding this application, please feel free to email my office at councillor_grimes@toronto.ca. I will forward your feedback to the Planning Department to be a part of the public record.

Thank you,

Mark
