639 - 645 Lawrence Avenue West - Zoning By-Law

The area residents are looking to present a petition to registering our issues with the 639 - 645 Lawrence Avenue West - Zoning By-Law Amendment Application This application proposes a four storey stacked townhouse building with 40 residential units and one level of underground parking at 639 - 645 Lawrence Avenue West. The proposed building would have a height of 14 metres and a density of 1.73 times the area of the lot. A total of 40 parking spaces are proposed. Having spoken with several City employees, it was suggested that as a neighbourhood we submit a petition that represents those that feel the development will have a negative effect on the quality of living in the area. Traffic, shading of yards, increased flooding risk and parking are some of the issues. With this petition we hope that Josh Colle will work with the residents to maintain our quality of life.

As of August 4th, 2013 the development is still under review by City Planning. The traffic study appears to not have been done, or is not available.  If you have suggestions for other actions we can take please feel free to contact me through this petition.  If you would prefer to sign a copy of the petition as opposed to online, please send me an e-mail through this petition (contact sponsor). 


Please contact me if you have ideas or suggestions. I am a resident of our neighbourhood, and happy to discuss anything you can suggest.
