|The OMB has set January 27, 2020 as the start date for the hearing that pits the City and the HPCA against the two massive development proposals by GreatWest Life (35 High Park Ave) and Minto (111 Pacific Ave).
We are now faced with a more expensive process than expected.
That’s the result of an OMB decision to combine the two applications together for one long hearing of 15 to 20 days duration. Hearings will begin in January 2020, with a follow up session in March.
Given this news, and the fast approaching and costly hearing, HPCA volunteers are pushing forward with our fundraising efforts. We need to pay legal counsel to represent us, and pay for urban designer as an expert witness to help the community argue for the preservation of the integrity of the High Park North Apartment Neighbourhood.
