You are cordially invited to attend a great series of talks about 13 Villa Road on Sept. 18, 2014 at the Committee of Adjustment at the Etobicoke Civic Centre. After 1:00 pm

Eight residents at Villa Road and Fortieth Street have prepared and rehearsed a great series of evidence-based, 5-minute talks, each addressing an entirely separate theme related to our objections to the proposed severance of 13 Villa Road.

The speakers will deliver solid evidence, related to the Official Plan, presented crisply and with passion.

Over 20 letters in opposition from the residents directly affected by the severance and variance proposals

We have submitted over 20 letters in opposition, from Villa Road, Fortieth Street, and James Street, to the proposed severance and variances.

If you wish to see the letters and accompanying documentation, please visit the Committee of Adjustment offices, next to the Etobicoke Civic Centre on the Fourth Floor, and request to see the three folders related to 13 Villa Road.

As residents of the City of Toronto, we have much to learn from each other. There is much value in comparing notes. All of us have to work together.

The fact we have social media is very helpful now, because we can compare notes and we can work very quickly.
