there is no need for the development of the greenspace in the Glenway subdivision. The developer has purchased greenspace within an established set of homes and asked the town to rezone the land for building. This will double the current population and cause traffic problems etc.

  3. 3. Agenda Who is the Glenway Preservation Association The Proposal Why it should not be accepted
  4. 4. Agenda Who we are The Proposal Why it should not be accepted
  5. 5. Who We Are The Glenway Preservation Association is incorporated and is the only registered association with the town of Newmarket. We have over 50 active volunteers and a petition of 1,500 signatures from residents opposing the development proposal. Through our regular communication we reach 700 households and had more than 300 residents at our recent public meeting in November.
  6. 6. Mission Statement “To preserve and protect the existing open green- space and neighbourhood values associated with the Glenway community”
  7. 7. The values we want to protect Protecting the green space that has been, and remains, a key objective within the Town’s Official Plan Preserving quality of lifestyle that brought us to Glenway - and to Newmarket Protecting the investment in our homes Safeguard the neighbourhood environment Prevent negative impact to the quality and cost of existing and planned infrastructure that this proposal would bring about

  10. 10. Residents’ view of the Proposal!! Put a picture of the proposal here?October 24, 2011 10
  11. 11. Agenda Who we are The Proposal Why it should not be accepted
  12. 12. Why it should not be acceptedWe are not here tonight to talk about: how many houses should be built how tall should the condos be how tall the fencing and berms should be and where the trees should be replanted what the obvious negative traffic impacts will be
  13. 13. Why it should not be acceptedWe are not here tonight to talk about: unavoidable issues with storm water management limited sewage allocation significant disruption to a stable, planned neighbourhood strain on existing infrastructure and resources increased TAXES on all Newmarket residents sufficient schooling enrolment
  14. 14. Why it should not be acceptedSo here’s what we are going to talk about: The rationale for this proposal is highly questionable The real objectives of the Places to Grow Act There is more than enough development to meet future growth targets The Developers approach in our community Glenway was green before green was a colour
  15. 15. A Highly Questionable Rationale Contrary to Official Plan Not located within Secondary Growth Plan area Does not adequately incorporate the planned growth in this area Eliminates valuable green space for current and future residents’ use Unrealistic assessment of infrastructure ‘stress’
  16. 16. The objective of the Places to Grow Act We support the Town’s plan to preserve our green space & our stable, long-standing community Objective is NOT to dictate HOW the Towns grow, but to provide guidance & targets According to the Developer, their proposal “helps fulfill the direction of the Growth Plan. It provides for significant growth within part of the existing built-up area of Newmarket. It will assist in meeting the Provincial targets for intensification” WE DON’T NEED THIS KIND OF ASSISTANCE!!
  17. 17. More than enough Development Town to grow from 85,000 Properties zoned to 98,000 by 2026 residential that follow OP: Properties in the North  McGregor Farm (Davis West and South East and Bathurst) account for approximately  Toth Farm (west of the 7,000 more residents Upper Canada Mall) Properties on Yonge and  Slessor Square Davis account for approximately 3,000 more  Davis and George residents  Yonge and Millard
  18. 18. The Developers and their approach Proposal is vague Manipulating interaction and consultation with residents No commitment to golf course. Hinges on Phase 1 approval Relying on positive OMB hearing decision
  19. 19. Glenway was green before green was a colour
  20. 20. In Summary The rationale for this proposal is deeply flawed Growth inside of this stable neighborhood is unnecessary AND not required in order for us to meet the Places to Grow Act requirements Glenway development is contrary to the Official Plan The open green space of this community will serve as a recreational area for the 10,000 new residents planned for this part of town
