Grenadier Square Redevelopment
OMB Pre-Hearing Conference

In the interest of protecting your neighbourhood from over-development, the 70 High Park Board of Directors request that all residents register as a Participant to the OMB hearing regarding the above matter, at the recommendation of the High Park Coalition (HPC).

How:  Attend the OMB Pre-Hearing OR submit an e-mail to the OMB
When: Friday March 21, 2014 at 10:00AM 
Where:  655 Bay Street,  16th Floor – Hearing Room 16-1A 
To demonstrate the strong opposition to the development application
To help yield a “No” result at the OMB for the proposed development

HPC is willing to help Registered Participants through the full process up to and including the OMB Hearing itself, which will likely take place in late 2014 or early 2015 (specific date TBA).

Please visit for more information.

The HPC has provided an essential service to our community. Results include:

  • Empowering over 2,200 residents via our petition which let their voices about the development be heard.
  • Garnering a UNANIMOUS victory at Etobicoke-York Community Council with all 11 councillors voting against the Grenadier Square Redevelopment Project.
  • Influencing the City Planning Final Report to deem the development proposal as over-development and not respecting the unique character of High Park.
  • Yielding a standing-room audience of concerned residents in the Council Chambers on February 25th.
