Help Us Open The Theatre Centre Green Roof/Terrace!
Would you like to enjoy our outdoor space at The Theatre Centre?
To date, we have been unable to open our Green Roof/Terrace to the community due to some technical zoning regulations. In preparation for our Committee of Adjustment hearing on May 27, 2015 we need to show that we have our community’s support for a change in designation for this outdoor space, from ‘terrace’ to ‘patio'.
PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT BY SIGNING THIS PETITION!
To the Toronto City Council and the Committee of Adjustment:
The Theatre Centre and supporting community are seeking a change in designation for The Theatre Centre’s Green Roof/Terrace at our Committee of Adjustment hearing on May 27, 2015. We are seeking minor variances to the current zoning regulations to change this area’s designation from ‘terrace’ to ‘patio’. We understand that by-laws 438-86 Section 12(2)345(e)(i) & (ii), state that patios should be at the front of the building and the proposed patio is located at the rear of the building facing the rear lot line.
This outdoor area presents a tremendous opportunity to share our own small green space. It is a place for plants to live, for quiet reflection, and to extend the artistic practice that takes place inside the building.
For over 25 years The Theatre Centre has been an anchoring cultural institution in the West Queen West neighbourhood. We have asked our community to demonstrate their support of this change in designation by signing this online petition.
