High Park Community Alliance affairs On the cities failure to support residents on 35 High Park Ave and 111 Pacfic Ave.

Dear High Park North Residents:

Our apologies for the time it has taken for us to get this update out to you. We had been working on this, and then along came COVID-19. Like you, we’ve been adjusting to this new normal in our everyday lives, and it took a while to be able to come back to High Park Community Alliance affairs.

Thank you to those who contacted us after HPCA announced reaching settlements with the developers (GWL and Minto). A few expressed frustration with the process and outcome. Others acknowledged that community involvement achieved reduced and better designs/plans. We share both sentiments.

What’s become clear is that by settling we achieved more for the community than would have been the case if we had pressed on at the OMB/LPAT after the City dropped out.  Much needed support from the City was lost, and the process was conducted in a manner that was clearly unsympathetic to the views of local residents.
