55 Port Street East

PDC MEETING:  Monday, March 18, 2019 @ 1:30 pm at City Hall (Council Chamber).  This advertised statutory public meeting of the Planning and Development Committee (PDC) will address the 55 Port Street East development proposal by simply receiving the Planning Dept.'s Information Report at this time.

The 40-page Planning Staff Information Report is posted within the PDC Agenda (Item 4.2) for March 18, 2019 (direct link), which starts on page 45 (to p84) of the PDF.  This Report records all public and other agency comments received to date, including at the Community Meeting on February 11, 2019 (see below).

AN EVENING PDC *PUBLIC MEETING* WILL BE SCHEDULED (DATE TBA). At that time, City staff will be listening to public comments and recording them for a Supplementary Report.  The *Evening PDC Meeting* date will be posted here.

The City issued a Notice of Public Meeting (2p PDF) to Residents about the daytime PDC Meeting on March 18, 2019  BEFORE  Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko directed that an *Evening PDC Meeting* (date TBA) should be held to enable the fullest public attendance and participation, in light of the PDC Time Change issue.  Image of the 1st page of the Notice is posted in the sidebar (with TOPCA update in red) -- click to enlarge.

Want to watch?  The 1:30 pm PDC meeting on March 18, 2019 will be live-streamed (and later archived) here.

NOTE: All Councillors + the Mayor comprise PDC and will hear first-hand what is said by the residents at the planned *Evening PDC Meeting* (date TBA).  The developer will make a presentation about the Application.  Planning staff may make a presentation as well.  NO DECISION is made at this step in the process, but Councillors can ask questions of Planning staff to enhance their understanding.

NEXT STEP: Public input at the Evening PDC Meeting will be noted for the Supplementary Report to be issued in a few months, which will contain the Planning staff recommendation to PDC regarding approval (or not) of the application.

COMMUNITY MEETING: Monday, February 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm at Clarke Hall in Port Credit (Notice, in sidebar).  Hosted by Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko re: the 10-storey condo building proposal (FRAM Building Group) at 55 Port Street East.  Planning and Transportation staff will attend. FRAM will present their plan.  ALL WELCOME.

NOTE: TOPCA reps attended an overview presentation by the FRAM development team on January 24, 2019 to learn details of their latest (revised) proposal, in preparation for the Port Credit Community Meeting on February 11, 2019.  Port Street residents from the adjacent condominium buildings and townhouses were also given four separate presentations in January 2019.  The Ward 1 Councillor and/or his staff were in attendance at these meetings.

NEXT STEP:  All public comments at the Community Meeting will be recorded for an Information Report (along with all e-mails, etc. received from anyone in the community) which will be formally presented at a statutory Public Meeting (under the Planning Act) before the Planning and Development Committee (PDC) of Council.
