We are coming to your door with a Lawn Sign! – August 7th OMB hearing at town offices and What Losing Lifestyle Value Really Means
We are coming to your door with a Lawn Sign!
Join other Glenway residents in the lawn sign distribution campaign starting in July and extending into August. Dates and times TBD.
Email Deb Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in details and want to participate.
Just let us know with an email to email@example.com and we will get one to you promptly. Everyone who wants to show their support will receive a lawn sign. There is no cost, but we are asking for a donation to support our legal defence fund.
What losing lifestyle value really means – a new Glenway Resident’s experience!
We just moved in to this beautiful neighbourhood and still unpacking. We came from Tehran, once a stunning green and garden-full city laying in the down skirts of towering Alborz Mountains. Eventually, the gardens vanished and were replaced by steels and bricks. Lovely large houses with gorgeous gardens with old plane trees and fruit trees were demolished and destructed and instead, 4-5 story apartment buildings were constructed to settle new residents, more cars, less blue sky. Now Tehran is well known for its pollution, a city that my family were banned to live in due to serious health issues.
What happened there was simple to identify: mismanagement by officials and abuse by constructors. I would never want to believe what happened in the past 70 years in a developing country (yet to be developed) would ever happen now, here in Canada.
Please send us a lawn sign to show our sympathy with the rest of our neighbours.
ed. note: All around town I see signs that say Newmarket was voted into the top 10 Canadian places to live. Newmarket has always prided itself on its greenspace (a key factor in determining livability of a city) and has always counted Glenway Golf Course as part of that green space and recreational land. This developer is taking away beauty, charm, livability and recreation from all Newmarket residents.
Reminder: OMB pre hearing at town offices on August 7th! set that aside and plan to attend
also: fundraiser and golf day: August 17th, all proceeds going towards keeping Glenway green!
