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 and copy my office as well – I need your voice to push this matter forward.  View the item:
