On Thursday, June 2nd, the Toronto District School Board hosted a public meeting to update the community on the revised development application for 411 Church Street. Jeff Latto of the TDSB presented the revised application, and sought community input for an Impact Statement to be presented to the City for inclusion in the Final Planning Report. Just over 30 members of the community gathered at Church Street Junior Public School to ask questions and share their concerns about the impact this development will have on the school and its students.
Some key changes to the application since it was last presented to the community included:

Here's some of the feedback we heard:
Public consultation on the design of James Canning Gardens will be held on Tuesday, April 19, from 6:30-8:00pm at the 519 Community Centre, room 106.

"Area residents and community members are invited to a public consultation for design changes and improvements to James Canning Park. This meeting will focus on the use and need for improvements of the larger linear park system north of Dundonald Street, but will primarily discuss the specific improvements budgeted for James Canning over the next year.
What improvements do you want to see? What should be considered in the design process? This is your chance to let us know."
