Davisville Apartment Neighbourhood Survey

WHAT DO WE NEED TO KEEP THIS A GREAT COMMUNITY?
WE NEED YOUR INPUT!

As you are likely aware, the neighbourhood is currently facing 8 new developments at 265 Balliol, 155 Balliol, 22 Balliol, 30 Merton, 140 Merton, 274 Merton, 141 Davisville and 1951 Yonge. Those projects might not all proceed as currently proposed, but it is very likely that something tall will be built at each of those locations, especially with the response of the province to the Midtown in Focus Plan (allowing much higher towers and at more locations). If and when those 8 developments were to be completed, we forecast the neighbourhood to grow to 15,000 residents (2016 Canada Census was 9.000 residents).

In addition we have identified another 16 locations in that neighbourhood, where tall buildings could be proposed and we are aware that a number of those locations will see applications in the near future.

SERRA has opposed most of these developments as currently proposed and has registered as a “party” at the OMB appeals for 5 applications (along with the TDSB). Our strategy has been to 1) request that the OMB review the cumulative impact of the concurrent applications in the neighbourhood (vs only the “site specific impacts”) and 2) to request that additional community services and facilities be provided directly by the developer, via Section 37 and 42 provisions or as part of the City capital budget.

We would like to make sure that we receive input from the residents in the community about what they perceive as the community “needs” and for that purpose have developed a short survey:
