Community Consultation VIRTUAL Meeting Re: Community Centre at the old Newtonbrook Plaza Site

October 26, 2020


BACKGROUND:

In 2011 the owner of Newtonbrook Plaza (5799-5915 Yonge Street) made Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment applications to permit the redevelopment of .the site to a mixed-use project. The owner appealed Council’s failure to make a decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. The City and the owner settled the appeals at the City Council meeting of July 7, 2015.

One of the terms of the settlement was that the owner would construct a community centre, including a daycare, having an area of 3,232 square metres. Since the settlement, it has been determined that the size of the community centre is not large enough to make optimal use of the City’s programs and functions. Staff have had some discussion with the owner and they are amenable to entertaining an expansion of the facility.

On October 7, 2020, North York Community Council authorized staff to enter into discussions with the owner to explore the possibility of increasing the size of the proposed community centre and to report back to North York Community Council no later than December 3, 2020 with possible mechanisms of implementation.
