Heart Lake Troubles…Again

  • City staff are recommending that council reject a proposal to build 124 townhouse units at Conestoga and Sandalwood Parkway
  • This issue has been in and out of Brampton City Hall since 2007
  • Staff are recommending a rejection due to the “town centre” zoning, which calls for a more dense, mixed-use style development
  • Other reasons for rejection are: not enough pedestrian connections, new in-out road too close to existing intersection, driveways too close to intersection, units are too skinny
  • Report on page 180

Issues in Brief

  • 5 new single detached houses proposed for 11205 Goreway Drive (page 21)
  • 15 townhouses and 24 stacked townhouse recommended for approval at Hurontario and Highwood; this development has raised ire in residents  (page 133)
