Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Greetings to Markland Wood!

I can’t believe it is the holiday season already and a new decade is fast approaching! I wonder what the next 10 years will bring for our community? I hope they will be good ones for everyone.

In the meantime, we have to get through this holiday season and as the song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. Markland Wood is already beginning to look like a winter wonderland! The lights are lit, the decorations are hung and the Christmas trees are beginning to appear in the windows! Take a drive or a walk in the evening and observe how beautiful our community looks! However, this time of year can be rather hectic so I do hope you can take the opportunity to appreciate the joys of this season.

240 Markland Drive Condo-Townhouse Proposal

on Wednesday, 06 June 2018.

UPDATE: 240 Markland Drive Proposed Development

On June 6th, the Council Chambers at Etobicoke Civic Center was overflowing with Markland residents concerned about the status of the 240 Markland Drive rezoning proposal. Since 2011, four building proposal iterations were submitted by the developer. The City Planning department seemed to be satisfied that the latest revision was close to being compliant to the Official City Plan for Apartment Neighbourhoods. The Planning department crafted a positive report that they presented to City Council. They recommended the proposal be accepted for the property to be rezoned. Since the developer appealed the project to the Ontario Municipal Board in December 2017, this was a request for guidance from the City Planning Department to the City Council. The agenda was tabled for June 6th, where 11 Etobicoke/York City Councillors would accept or reject the Planning report to recommend a rezoning change.

January 12 2017 UPDATE: Pearson International Airport

Good news! No weekend runway alternation (“noise sharing”) on our North-South runways!

Since our last Update, there has been an important development. The Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC) public meeting was held on December 6, 2017 at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel. Representatives of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), Navigation Canada (NavCan) and Transport Canada attended. At the CENAC meeting, the GTAA presented an update on their 2017-2037 Toronto-Pearson Draft Master Plan. The GTAA also presented their 2018-2022 Noise Management Plan. Lastly, NavCan presented a brief summary of the HELIOS Report that they commissioned in 2016, as well as NavCan’s formal Response to the HELIOS Report. We told you about the NavCan Response in our November Marklander. The following is a brief summary of the CENAC meeting. You can find the slides, speaking notes and video on the CENAC website.

The GTAA prefaced their remarks with a general statement that their planning is consistent with the east-west configuration of the airport.

Draft Master Plan (2017-2037): This Draft Plan is based on the need for Pearson to handle the significant growth anticipated in air travel over the next 20 years. Among several points, the GTAA advised that previous planning was based on the current size of aircraft but that new aircraft design will result in more passengers per flight and so fewer flights than originally anticipated to meet growth demands. The GTAA also discussed the proposed regional transit hub. The Draft Master Plan was submitted to the Minister of Transport on December 1, 2017. The Minister’s approval of the land-use portion is required.
