City Hearing for Two New Development Applications (Oct 7 @ 7pm)

The City of Vaughan has scheduled a Public Hearing to receive input on two small housing development applications that are being proposed for the land directly behind the Waldorf School (see attached infographic). We want to encourage all Thornhill Woods residents who are concerned about the intensification of the area surrounding the Waldorf School, Hesperus Village and Jaffari Village to attend this important meeting.

The Public Hearing will be held on October 7 at 7:00 pm within the main Council Chamber of Vaughan City Hall (2141 Major Mackenzie Drive, Vaughan).

All residents are encouraged to give a deputation to City Council. Residents should focus their comments on the issues of traffic, infrastructure, the environment and any other concern that you may have about uncontrolled development within Thornhill Woods. Don’t be shy about linking the impact of these two smaller developments to the combined impact of other projects like the Jaffari development application.

Our community cannot handle any more density. Our schools are already overcrowded, roads are very busy and rush hour is chaotic. If you live on Dewpoint, Fraserwood, Serene Way, Mosswood, Mintwood or Thornhill Woods Drive, you need to attend the council meeting next week and make your concerns heard.

These two developments actually meet the current zoning for this land, the number of houses is relatively small and we are supportive of this kind of low density development. The real issue here is that the connection of Bathurst Glen to Mintwood will create a bypass route for people seeking access in and out of the Jaffari Village complex via Rutherford Road. The intersection of Thornhill Woods Drive and Rutherford Road is already a mess and the city needs to explain how they will prevent Thornhill Woods Drive from turning into a parking lot.

This is the time to provide your input to City Council. Please attend this important meeting. PTWA will be there to present our deputations.
