Public Meeting with Build Toronto -- Oct. 3, 2012

Hi everyone, 

As you know, there are two major parcels of land on the Quarry Lands. The eastern portion of the site is owned by The Conservatory Group (also known as Gerrard Clonmore Developments), while most of the land on the western half of the site is controlled by Build Toronto, the city’s arms-length real estate and development corporation. 

CCQLD’s mandate has always been to fight for a responsible development outcome across the full Quarry Lands site. Over the past year, as Build Toronto has become more engaged in articulating a vision for their portion of the site that does not include high rises, CCQLD frequently has requested that Build Toronto share their ideas with the full community for input and feedback. We are pleased that Build Toronto now has accepted our invitation. 

We are awaiting one small detail before Build Toronto will be able to make an official confirmation, but it is highly likely the meeting will be held the evening of Wednesday Oct. 3, with details below. 

Wednesday Oct. 3, 7 – 9:30 pm
Malvern Collegiate Institute
55 Malvern Ave.

Because this is already short notice, we wanted to let the community know so you can mark the date off on your calendar and plan to attend. We will send out another email as soon as we get official confirmation, likely early this week.

Build Toronto has let us know they are preparing an information sheet available for distribution to the community in advance of the meeting. We will pass it on to you as soon as we receive it. 

This meeting is an important opportunity to become informed and provide input on the future direction of our community. We look forward to seeing you there and will be in touch again soon. 

Warmest regards,

Board of Directors,
Concerned Citizens of Quarry Lands Development

I attended the meeting and was NOT impressed. I have no confidence in Build Toronto's ability to influence any developer once the property is sold. They will spend millions to clean up the site, then turn it over to the usual suspects and move on to their next project. We'll all be stuck with the mess.
