It is interesting, on one side of the Junction strip at the McBride's site, we have an application for a car wash and on the other side, there is one to change from a car wash to residential/retail. Second point is with regards to recommendation # 6 which requires the property to be occupied by person 65 years of age or older. It is a fact that there is a need for senior housing, but why should we put all the senior and elderly buildings in the same area. I'm referring to the long-term care building that is just being completed on Runneymede just south of Dundas, shouldn't the City be moving away from grouping and for a lack of a better word "ghettoizing" similar demographics together in the same general area? If we the city wants to promote diversity and cohesion, they should steer the zoning in that direction.
