A second community consultation was held on July 10, 2023, to discuss a new proposal for the property, which aims to permit a 20-storey building, including 384 new purpose-built rental units. The application is currently under review by City Divisions, and the Planning staff will work with the applicant to address any issues and reflect on the feedback received from the community. The final report will be presented to the City Council for review.

Fred Johnson Park
Residents have contacted my office to inform us about the presence of garbage in the treed area of Fred Johnson Park, as well as a city stop sign. I have reached out to the Parks Supervisor to address this issue. I have received confirmation that the stop sign has been removed, and Parks staff will take care of the garbage.

Scarborough Village Park Splash Pad Project Update
Due to unexpectedly high bid submissions, the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Scarborough Village Park Splash Pad and Playground resulted in the design services contract not being awarded.

A project webpage request has been submitted, and staff will share this information as soon as possible. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact my office.
