Local Update: 633 Coronation Drive

I want to thank all the engaged community members, local community associations, as well as Mayor Tory, for your continued advocacy related to the proposed development at 633 Coronation Drive.

Last week, my office was notified that the Environmental Compliance Application (ECA), seeking to build an Organics Processing Centre and Anaerobic Digester at the site, was withdrawn. This proposal, submitted to the provincial government, would have brought more than 100 commercial trucks into our community each day, driving to and from the facility. While the applicant has not confirmed if they plan to submit another application to the provincial government, I am committed to advocating to the province to request a transparent public consultation process in the future. For more information on this application and the withdrawal, you can read Mike Adler's article in The Scarborough Mirror by clicking here. 
In November, I worked with my City Council colleagues to pass a motion requesting a review of the existing and potential future impacts that trucking to and from the Coronation Employment area will have on our local streets. In the second quarter of this year, staff will report back on recommendations to minimize trucking impacts on our neighbourhood. You can read my full motion by clicking here.
