To Vaughan Council Re Centre/Bathurst Development
As residents of the City of Vaughan we are concerned with the rezoning plans for the north side of Centre St, Thornhill between Dufferin and New Westminster and ask Vaughan City Council to consider the quality of life for area residents in regards to blocked sunshine, traffic, parking, green space and community safety. While we understand that the Province of Ontario has called for increased high density in our city, wehave already experienced an explosion of condominium development around Disera and the Promenade Mall with plans for more development in these areas, on Bathurst north of Center, as well as at Dufferin and Center. We believe that additional high density should focus elsewhere in the city with zoning remaining as it is for the north side of Centre St.
There are also plans to run a Rapidway through this neighbourhood - if the Rapidway will result in the City, Region and OMB demanding higher density on Centre (which is a quaint country road on the east side of Bathurst) please support adjusting the route of the Rapidway.
We believe that change is needed on Centre St. We support change that maintains the atmosphere of the neighbourhood and treats this as a minor regional road- unlikeSteeles or Dufferin - with an emphasis on the family friendly heritage nature of Thornhill.
