This email comes from Anna O'Rourke who is the spokeswoman for the Slessor Square Residents' Group. You can find the Appeal letter and letter to Newmarket Mayor, Tony Van Bynen, in the documents section in the file marked developer.
I just want to let you know that the Slessor group has filed with the OMB. Please find attached their application as well as correspondence that explains the process as provided by Councillor Hempen. The Town has not taken a position on the appeal at this point.
This is obviously very disappointing as we have had numerous meetings with the Slessor group. They are aware of our concerns regarding height, density and traffic, but are still moving ahead with an appeal.
Councillor Hempen is aware that we hope that planning and council will realize our concerns regarding density and the amount of traffic this will cause on the Yonge/Davis corridor.
This is all the information I have at this time. I will keep you posted as information becomes available.
By separate email I will also send to Theresa Latchford at the Era Banner.
