Humber Bay Parks Master Plan and “The Pavilion”: Message from Brian Bailey of CCFEW

The following message is from Brian Bailey of CCFEW:

The process of reviewing the Humber Bay Parks Master Plan was initiated at a public meeting on February 16th.  There are many important things to consider in the master plan, but discussion at the meeting was dominated by the pavilion: a 12,000 square foot, $7 million dollar facility planned for Humber Bay Park East.

An online petition has been created opposing the pavilion: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/823/779/107/stop-the-pavilion-project-at-humber-bay-park-east/

Councillor Grimes has apparently heard a lot of negative reaction to the pavilion, and has stated, “If the community does not want a new facility built in Humber Bay Park East, I will cancel the project.” So, it’s not dead yet, but it’s not a done deal either.

You can find out more about the Humber Bay Parks Master Plan, including presentation materials and comment forms at www.toronto.ca/humberbayparks.

The comment period ends on March 8th.

There is also much information and discussion on the Facebook page of the recently formed Friends of Humber Bay Park.

CCFEW has not yet submitted a formal set of comments and recommendations.
