Guild Inn Update - April, 2015 - Click Here


Dear Friends,

Spring is bringing many enhancements to Ward 43. There will be a new splash pad, street furniture, road resurfacing and constructions projects. I hope you take the time to enjoy them as I strive to have our tax dollars spent in your community for their best value.

The largest project will be the redevelopment of the Guild Inn.  With the lease agreement/operations agreement now signed, plans for the banquet hall/restaurant are becoming a reality. You many read the details in Section 7 of this report along with the links to the Guild Inn redevelopment and the Guild Inn and Gardens Master Plan.

City Council has been active with many reports coming forward, I have put forward a number of items that affect Ward 43 and the City as a whole. A recent list may be found in Section 2 of this report. 
Driveway widths in Scarborough are effecting a number of residents across Scarborough, the zoning bylaw is not serving our residents well.  Residents are finding themselves in a situation when they try to repave their current driveway, to be told by the City that their current driveway has been illegally widened.  In most cases the residence have a one car garage door opening on a large lot and are surprised when asked to reduce their driveway to the size of the garage door; not taking into consideration the size of their private lot.  Other jurisdictions in the City have measures to protect their residents.  I am trying to have the same courtesy extended to Scarborough Residents.   To have your opinion heard on this matter send in your comments to the Planning and Growth Committee pgmc@toronto.ca and copy my office as well – I need your voice to push this matter forward.  View the item: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2015.PG1.6
Sincerely,
Paul
