To determine the need for staff and legal representation at the Ontario Municipal Board for the appeal regarding 42 Sunnydale Drive.

There would be no financial impact in that legal representation is not being recommended.
It is recommended that this report be received by Toronto City Council and that staff and legal representation not be provided for the appeal regarding 42 Sunnydale Drive.
