CLC Rebecca Development (formerly DND)

Latest Status:

- On January 16th, 2012, at the Oakville Planning and Development Council Meeting, SCORA presented an alternative plan for the CLC, council and town staff to consider.

"SCORA is very flexible, but believe our plan is more in line with parameters of Livable Oakville than the CLC’s (Canada Lands Corporation) development application"

The 3 main points of alternative plan:

1. Maintain the like-to-like lot sizes, which protects and enhances the character of the existing residential areas of Mary Street and Weybourne Drive.
2. Maximize the overall amount of green space and parkland on the property.
3. Focus the increased density on the hard edges of Dorval and Rebecca with a condo-style building that offers one-level living versus the traditional townhouse format.

 With the public’s comments received, Town staff will put together a recommendation regarding the development, which will be brought before the Town’s Planning and Development Council for approval at a later date.

 The entire meeting was recorded and can be found online at; http://www.towntv.ca/120116.htm. from 17:08 - 1:03:00.

 Additionally, the Oakville Beaver wrote an article summarizing the meeting found online at;

 This is the biggest development in the area – over 16 hectares - that will affects traffic and the tone of future development

See their application details at:http://www.oakville.ca/townhall/ppn-12jun25.html

See the CLC proposal presented May 31st 2011 at a public meeting at St. James Public School.   It is the opinion of SCORA that this proposal has too much density and too many townhouses that are not in keeping with Oakville’s new official plan.

 

This 16 acre site is a “tip-factor” for our neighbourhood - in appearance, home values and traffic. We encourage you to be active in attending meetings regarding its development.
