I am writing this post in the hope you can copy the following message (and adapt it as you wish) and send it as an email to Tamoor Chaudary email@example.com at the Etobicoke York committee of adjustment.
Artist’s rendering: proposed construction at 290 Lake Promenade
Please send a letter as soon as feasible.
Please send it by Nov. 20th at the latest; the committee meeting is on Nov. 21st.
Here’s a template for a suggested text:
I am writing with regard to of an application for a new house at 290 Lake Promenade.
This is the historical section of Lake Promenade with the wraparound porches and where Thomas Wilke’s home still exists.
The proposed home is 3 times the permitted size, is 3 floors in height, and is of a design that does not reinforce the character of this particular block.
It is also located on the waterfront trail, right across from Len Ford Park, meaning that it would be the biggest and most dominating structure on that historical block in Long Branch.
We are in strongly in favour of development that is in keeping with the Long Branch Character Guidelines. We wish to underline that the proposed design is not in keeping with the guidelines.
