This is to confirm our telephone conversation of 2:15 p.m. Mr. Khan wishes his letter of
June 8, 1998 to be included as an official objection and he will also be at the September 16,
1998 meeting at 10:00 a.m.
Wajid Khan, President, Dufferin Mazda
(June 8, 1998)
Further to our telephone conversation, please consider this an objection to the parkette
planned to block off Roselawn Avenue at Anastasia Court on the following grounds:
1)It would cause complete chaos with the residents of over forty new homes trying to get
onto a very busy Dufferin Street at anytime, especially during the morning and afternoon
rush hours. At present traffic can go either way towards Marlee Avenue via Castlefield
Avenue or Dufferin Street via Roselawn Avenue. Closing one artery would be absolutely
counterproductive and will cause traffic jams.
2)It would block off the entry to our property which is not acceptable.
3)It will also cause residents of the forty homes to access Castlefield Avenue only via
Dufferin Mazda property which is once again unacceptable.
It is imperative that an alternate acceptable plan be worked out rather than the present one.
1.Personally, I do not think any change is necessary.
2.It is suggested that two traffic signals be placed, one on Castlefield Avenue and one on
Roselawn Avenue. The one on Castlefield Avenue coordinated with the Dufferin Street and
Castlefield Avenue signal and the one on Roselawn Avenue, jest west of Anastasia Court
with a short green of 15 to 20 seconds. Since Roselawn Avenue is already a one-way street,
therefore, there will be no on-coming traffic and there will be no merging required as the
Castlefield Avenue traffic would be stopped on the red light while the Roselawn Avenue
traffic is exiting and vice versa.
