Leaside is a vibrant, caring, and family oriented community. However change is inevitable and we know that our neighbourhood must and will change.  Governments are investing in the LRT and the city is facing pressures to intensify by adding population density around transit nodes.  The City of Toronto is also facing an affordable housing shortage and every community needs to do its part to welcome thousands of new familiies that will enjoy existing and new neighbourhood amenities and evolve the character of the neighbourhood.  The City of Toronto has created development plans that leverage long established good planning guidelines to ensure that new develepments add population density while at the same time protect existing residents & neighbourhoods by ensuring that new delelopments transition into the 'local context'.  A precedent setting threat, the 1837-1845 Bayview Broadway Development Proposal completely ignores many critical good planning principles and seeks to maximize profits of the Gupta Group at the expense of local residents and the long term vision, character, & viability of the community.
