Opposition rallying against proposal for stacked townhouse project on Island Road
Opposition appears to be rallying against a proposal for 56 stacked townhouse units in the West Rouge neighbourhood.
The West Rouge Community Association says a negative reaction to the application by Your Home Developers at previous community meetings “has been unanimous.”
A recent article in the community association’s magazine said such a development on the commercial property near Port Union Road will be in a busy area and “further strain an already impossible situation” for local traffic.
It also argued stacked town homes “do not fit” the community.
Scarborough East Councillor Ron Moeser said a public meeting at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, Jan. 26, in West Rouge Community Centre is a follow-up session to brief residents on their concerns.
He said most residents want to keep the vacant property, which is next to a grocery store near the western end of Island Road, zoned as commercial.
The ratepayer groups said the application, which requires a zoning amendment, may go to Scarborough Community Council next month or in March.
