It should be a slam dunk, so it will probably get fought tooth & nail. I mean, is the density "sensitive" enough?

Oh, there will be quite a bit of talk about 5 displaced affordable-rent households.  I imagine the political pressure will be on to give them some type of extra compensation.

I appreciate that a few people will need to find new homes in the short term, but in the end 10 additional residences will exist. How else does the region address the "housing shortage" if more homes can't be added without a huge brouhaha ensuing?

This design would be perfect to replace the aging housing stock in the CSV.

looks good to me. I had to look twice to see the parking entrance, which is a good thing.

The parking entrance is off Bank Street - correct?

 I used to live on Bank and remember when the Radnor was built in the late 40's or early 50's.

The parking entrance has always been on Bank Street and would make no sense to have it on the Avenue.

In Bingo's day it was a big development controversy when they built Bank St. school.

Because 16 units would result in full scale riots.

This project is finally going to CotW on Thursday July 25.

 

The most recent revision is from April 2019:

Staff are supporting the application; note that the project appears to have morphed into a strata (rather than rental) proposal, if I read the staff report correctly:

Council is discussing this application right now. Staff are having to reiterate that this is not a rezoning application, so Council is only being asked to consider the design and landscaping of the proposal, not the tenure.

It’s been eight months and the bare minimum of governing comprehension continues to allude this council. Only one election prior to the last these councillors would be nearing 1/3rd of their three year term. Staff should not be reiterating such basic, fundamental points.

I will note that Loveday was the one asking the questions. Whether it was for his own understanding or the benefit of other Councillors, I do not know.
