Councillor Wong-Tam has struck a community-based Working Group which will meet regarding Graywood Development's proposal for a 15-storey midrise at 506-516 Church Street (home to Boutique Bar, Crews & Tangos, and a parking lot that is used for the Central Stage at the Pride Festival).
According to the councillor's office, the Working Group will meet before any Zoning By-law and Official Plan Amendments can be brought to City Council for approval. The group, of which CWNA is a member, will discuss the development proposal and site plan from the economic and cultural perspective of the Church Wellesley Village, with the aim of preserving and protecting the historical significance, character and culture of the Village.
The Working Group meetings are separate and apart from broader community consultations, which will be held in 2021. The first Working Group meeting was held on Dec. 1; we'll have details soon.
