Here is what the Townhouse Condo site (former clubhouse site) looks like

February 26, 2015 at 4:22 pm

Attending the Public Information Center Feb 24th a few thoughts come to mind…

  1. We want similar brick and stone housing that matches brick colours used in neighbouring houses
  2. We want mature trees preserved as they provide drainage, shade and transform CO2 into oxygen.  Saplings take up to 20 years to offer such benefits.
  3. We need to ensure residents fight not to have ugly concrete noise barriers along Eagle.  Prefer natural berm or hedge or if necessary wood.
  4. Residents need park space for recreation.  Let’s push for a maintained trail system.
  5. Bike trails help slow traffic as well as provide a safer lane for bicycles.  Let’s push for visible bike trails.

The Town wants your input!  You can send these thoughts and some of your own to Linda Traviss at the Town at ltraviss@newmarket.ca no later than March 6, 2015

Background information on Site Plan for Block 159 (area of former clubhouse)

February 2, 2015 at 9:46 am

To help residents who want more information on the happenings on January 19th in Council regarding Glenway we have navigated through the Town of Newmarket website and if you click on the link – http://newmarket.siretechnologies.com/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?meetid=326&doctype=AGENDA

Listen to Marianneville’s review of site plan along with Council’s comments and motions.

I think it is important to notes several comments that as a resident you may wish to review including:

  • Comments made by Marianneville about Block 159 (74 Townhouses) and the lands directly west of Eagle (40 homes) being part of the initial phase of housing:  fast forward to 24:00
  • Regional Councillor Taylor’s remarks on clarifying phasing to the overall context – more transpiracy to the remainder of development: fast forward to 40:08
  • Councillor Kerwin’s remarks on “the sooner we move forward…” “…we had the opportunity to purchase the land and didn’t…” and “the Town has spent over $1M to date:  fast forward to 54:47.
  • Councillor Bisanz’s remarks to share with residents a Public Information Centre:  fast forward to 59:54
  • Councillor Kerwin’s remarks “this has been very costly to this municipality – almost $1M…”: fast forward to 1:06:41

In the end the motion to proceed to a Public Information centre (PIC) by Councillor Bisanz was approved which will be February 24th in Council Chambers.

It should be very informative session and we hope you bring your questions.  The GPA may be posing questions as well as it relates to the community interface as previously discussed with the Town.
