Petition for the opposition regarding the proposal to amend the South Newton Neighbourhood Concept plan as proposed by Development Application 7911-0
We, the signees, oppose Development Application 7911-0044-00, at 59th Ave and 144 Street not as a whole but for the following reasons: • We would like the city to honour the original NCP at 15 upa and not up to 25 upa which equals 144 townhomes. Our schools and infrastructure can’t handle any more density. There are numerous townhome developments around 60th Ave between 148th Street and 152nd Street already. Our NCP has constantly changed from RF lots, to RF12, to RF9 and then to RF 9 with coach homes. Cambridge Elementary is busting at the seams as is Sullivan Secondary. Sullivan Secondary's high enrollment was already a concern in 2004. The rate of development will not support the current infrastructure in place. • Even so approved by the DFO, we would like the setback around the stream running through the development application to remain at 30 meters and not 22 meters. This stream is the main water source for a resident coyote, racoons, skunks, deer, frogs, owls and countless hummingbirds. Most parks around this area are recreational and provide no natural shelter as does this little refuge. Please keep this watershed as buffered as possible.
IMPORTANT! When signing please give your address and phone number in the text or this petition will be void. Thank you so much for your time.
