City of Toronto Staff Report on the Future of Yorkville
This report was a result of SYHA's pressure & lobbying at City Hall in April 2003 to persuade council to defer the 100 Yorkville Development Project - for further Study
City Council approved the project by passing the By-Law and Official Plan amendments to allow the Development as submitted, but as a concession passed a Motion (J33) April 14, 15 & 16th 2003 for the Commissioner of Urban Development Services to report on the "Planning and Future Development of the Village of Yorkville"
This positive step is the direct result of SYHA efforts
