A previous post regarding 33 Forty First St. is entitled:
Wherever you live in Toronto, and especially if you live in South Etobicoke, if you object to the severance of the lot at 33 Forty Second Street, a property that faces directly on to Marie Curtis Park near the shoreline of Lake Ontario, and the building of two ‘soldier’ houses at the site, which are not in keeping with the character of the Long Branch neighbourhood, please email the following text (or a text of your own choosing) to the Committee of Adjustment.
The Committee of Adjustment meeting, regarding this severance application, takes place on Nov. 19, 2015 at the Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall, starting at 3:00 pm. If you can make it to the meeting, as a way to show your support, please do so.
Please send an email stating objection to the severance application by the morning of Nov. 19, 2015 at the latest; if you can do it earlier, please email it earlier.
The text (please feel free to copy it as it is, or to adapt or revise it as you see fit) reads:
Committee of Adjustment Chair and Members Etobicoke York Panel

Re File Number A259/l 5EYK Re File Number B30/l 5EYK 33 Forty Second Street
Plan 2172 Lot 327
Attention Brian Caradonn Application Technician Tel. No.: 416-394-8066 .
The proposed severance of this property into 2 residential lots and the requested development of two detached tall thin buildings will have a detrimental impact on the surrounding community. They will not fit into the community which currently has charming and older homes both bungalow and two story. The additional homes on the property add to vehicular traffic and there will be an increase in the density of population.
The lot is directly opposite Marie Curtis Park which is well used particularly on weekends and so there is a traffic consideration already. Those directly adjacent to the project will lose light and privacy and those in the community will have to live with homes that do not fit in. It is important to consider the problem of the water table. It is quite high in this area and this density can cause flooding.
Forty Second Street is the western entrance to the former Village of Long Branch and part of the “heritage” walk. The proposed variances do not compliment this aspect at all.
I do not support the recommendation for severance and requested variances and request that the application be denied.
I wish to receive a copy of the Committee of Adjustment Notification of Decision for this property.
Please contact me any time.
