The purpose of the study is to review the permitted land uses, density and development standards along the Sheppard Avenue West segment of the Sheppard Avenue Commercial Area Secondary Plan (SACASP).
The review of the Sheppard Avenue Commercial Area Secondary Plan (SACASP) was initiated by North York Community Council via a motion from the local ward councilor. Community Council directed City Planning to update the existing Secondary Plan to facilitate development, which provides for a mix of residential and retail uses and appropriate standards to protect adjacent neighbourhoods.
The statutory public meeting was held at the January 17, 2017 North York Community Council Meeting.
The City held a community consultation meeting on September 7, 2016 to provide more information on the study, answer questions and to engage residents in sharing feedback. At the meeting the proposed recommendations for an updated planning framework was presented.
The final report and supplementary report for the Sheppard Avenue Commercial Area Secondary Plan Review was adopted with amendments by North York Community Council on January 17, 2017 and considered by City Council on January 31, 2017.
