Slessor Square's lawyer, Ira Kagan, last night told the Ontario Municipal Board that the project is "on hold".
The OMB was expecting a status update on 24 March on the conditions of draft plan approval. This date had been agreed between the Parties.
Kagan told the Board:
"I have not obtained instructions from my client with respect to your enquiry below. (ie OMB request for update)
I am advised that the redevelopment project is on hold at this time. Accordingly, and for the time being, my client will not be finalising the conditions of draft plan approval nor seeking that the Board issue its Order (on the draft plan) at this time. My client appreciates the Board's understanding in this respect. Thank you."
We wait to hear from the Town.
