From the Kitchissippi Ward Newsletter #57:

OMB reform

So long as the City, with its sophisticated planning capacity and holistic view of how the city should develop according to our well-considered Official Plan, isn't the final word on development, residents and I will continue to be frustrated at how ad hoc rezoning is proceeding (such as the McRae/Scott developments). 

Recently, the Province announced (with many thanks to our MPP Yasir Naqvi) a consultation on Ontario Municipal Board reform. I'll be spending some considerable time in the next weeks preparing a response to that, consulting with colleagues. This is a critical juncture for us, and I encourage everyone to participate.  I would be, of course, very happy to chat with anyone who wants to discuss their potential input before submitting it.
