View Full Version : "The City of Vaughan Considers Every Proposed Change Carefully"

Shefman emphasized that the City of Vaughan considers the original plans as well as every change proposed very carefully. He explained that staff and members of Council take consider a variety of issues such as concerns of local residents, original zoning and official plan for the area, capacity (water, sewer, transportation), the impact on the surrounding areas, and quality of the proposal among others.

In regards to the concern that the high density is being concentrated all in one neighbourhood, Shefman explained that the high density is not limited to this specific area but that rather it is becoming the most common form of residential development. Areas such as Yonge and Steeles, Jane and Rutherford, and Highway 7 and Weston Road are all being developed in this way. Under the Ontario Government Places to Grow requirements, the City (and other GTA municipalities) must develop in the future at much higher densities. “Our new Official Plan which we will be starting consultations on the draft next month will reflect our new approach to development,” added Shefman.
