“A document to guide growth and change in historic Mimico-By-The-Lake over the next 20 years will come before community and Toronto councils next spring.”
Dec. 17, 2012 deadline for feedback
The article concludes:
“[Matthew] Premru stressed future Mimico-By-The-Lake’s revitalization can’t come only from redevelopment.
“’The (secondary) plan can’t rely on redevelopment because it may not be every owner’s objective,’ he said of existing apartment building owners. ‘We need to provide a range of options for revitalization to take place, including redevelopment, infill development and renewal through the city’s Tower Renewal project to improve existing facilities, make them more modern, more efficient, improve the aesthetics. The plan cannot solely rely on redevelopment.’
“Residents are encouraged to provide their feedback to the recent open house on the Mimico-By-The-Lake Secondary Plan by Dec. 17. Visit www.toronto.ca/planning/pdf/dec_6_2012_open_house_feedback_form.pdf to access the comment form online.”
