Just received this from Newmarket's senior planner, Marion Plaunt, who is responsible for the Slessor file.

Given the limited space at the venue for Monday evening at the Community Centre and the anticipated interest from the community, I am providing the following Update to advise that Dwight Slessor Holding’s Limited is proposing a reduction in height and that other opportunities will be provided for the residents to review and provide feedback on the revised plans.

Please feel free to share the following information with your group.

Please be advised that in response to community feedback, Dwight Slessor Holdings Ltd. has revised their proposal to reduce the height of their Yonge Street development to a maximum of 16 stories. The developer is currently in the process of finalizing the details of the proposal.

There will be numerous opportunities to review the details of the plan, including:

·        The revised plan and accompanying presentation will be available on the Town of Newmarket website at www.newmarket.ca early next week

·        A community engagement meeting on Monday evening

·        Additional meetings for public review and input will be scheduled.

As always, we need to see the small print. 

But this is an encouraging sign of movement.
