Town Owned Land Not Part of McLeod Farm Development Plan
At the Triple Crown Development prehearing to the OMB (Ontario Municipal Board) on September 21st, 2018 I received a copy of the new development plan that does not include the Town Owned Land that the developer originally wanted to purchase.
First, I would like to thank the people that heard us, but most of all I would like to thank each and every person that filled out the survey with respect to the sale of this land and giving their comments and ideas on what they would like to see it used for. Our voices were heard.
For now the developer is not including that land in their plans and is not asking for rezoning of these lands from open green space/agricultural to residential at the hearing, they did however raise the units to 23 per hectare from the original 16.6. and from 22.2 per hectare that was in the original plan amendments. The total units in the new plan are now 658-671 units. In the Official Plan this area is designated low density and the 23 units per hectare would make it medium density.
Our next step is to present all the ideas to the new council and maybe have this land be a park and 3/4 of an acre a dog park as those were the two most popular things from the survey. We also need to make sure that all that land is connected to the Caledon Trailway “The Great Trail” and the trail running along the boundary of the development.
There also was a second prehearing set for May 1st, 2019 10am. Ones that were not able to attend today and would like to be a participant in the hearing can attend the May 1st prehearing and put their name on the list. If you are not able to attend you can have a friend attend on your behalf to sign you up.
