The carbon copies cc’s on a letter to the city about rezoning employments, on the letter pasted below are as follows,


Lou Moretto, Manager – Etobicoke York District (via email)
Jeffrey Cantos, Senior Planner, Official Plan (via email)
Mr. Digs Dorfman & Ms. C.J. Chiddy, The Sweet Potato (via email)
Councillor Sarah Doucette – Ward 13 Parkdale-High Park (via email)

It would be prudent for the community  to be aware that they would probably be wanting and needing to use the lot next to the Vine Parkette for the major parking facility for the store. 

Looking at the numerous trucks that attend the no frills store on Pacific Ave residents should get involved may want to get involved in the decision process, if the want the store on Vine Ave or not to insure community what happens is what the near by residents want.
