More community consultation for controversial High Park Condo
Standing room only community council meeting degenerates into shouting match
A highly contested High Park condo proposal likened by one west-end councillor to “putting a gorilla in a fishbowl” was referred back for more community consultation this week after a two-and-a-half hour meeting disintegrated into a shouting match.
The controversial development application – which proposes a 14-storey, 378-residential-unit, mixed-use building directly across from High Park on Bloor Street West – drew the ire of a standing-room-only crowd at Etobicoke York Community Council (EYCC) Tuesday night.
After an hour of similar deputations and visibly taken off guard by the long grocery list of complaints presented by her constituents, local Councillor Sarah Doucette admitted to having a change of heart – reversing her decision to approve the development in favour of seeking more time for consultation between the developer and the community.
