Petition for Oakwood Village MLS district
We, the undersigned licensed realtors and members of OREA/TREB support the proposition to change the neighbourhood name of Oakwood-Vaughan that currently appears on MLS listings within this Toronto area to Oakwood Village. A majority of local residents support the name change, which more accurately describes the area, in keeping with area amenities such as the Oakwood Village Public Library, Oakwood Village Arts Festival, and Oakwood Village BIA to name a few. The change would also reflect the more broad, inclusive, and welcoming attitude towards residents and prospective buyers, as opposed to a narrowly defined area named for one intersection. As it welcomes new families and businesses into the neighbourhood, this area is appealing to the Toronto Real Estate Board to recognize the value that this small but important change would have for both residents and the resale of homes in and around Oakwood Village.
