Please note the Community Council meeting is April 9 not April 6 as previously indicated.
The following March 26, 2013 message is from Michael Harrison:
I am pleased to let you know that the city staff report to declare the
city’s intent to designate the Ormsby/Franceschini (Mimico Estates) estate
under the Ontario Heritage Act, is returning to Etobicoke York Community
Council on April 9, 2013 for consideration.
As you will recall, the report was originally adopted by the Toronto
Preservation Board on April 1, 2011 but then referred back to planning
staff by Etobicoke York Community Council on April 21, 2011 pending
completion of the Mimico By The Lake Secondary Plan.
Now, two years later the Mimico By The Lake Secondary Plan is complete and
both it, and the report declaring the intent of the city to designate the
Ormsby/Franceschini estate under the Ontario Heritage Act is set for
discussion at the Etobicoke York Community Council meeting of April 6,
Many of you were kind enough to send comments to the Committee indicating
your support of the intent to designate these important buildings. If
you could do so again that would be most appreciated.
The report can be found here:

It contains important heritage policies including those that deal
specifically with the Ormsby/Franceschini estate.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support.
