Neighbourhood Update and Reminder

Sherwood Forest School Site Update

The city staff recommendation for the rezoning passed unanimously at the City Council’s Planning and Environment Committee last night. I anticipate it will pass next week at City Council. We will keep you up to date as the process moves forward. The next step will be the City declaring the “non-park” portion surplus and preparing a Request for Proposals for the sale and development of the “housing” portion of the site.

The staff report can be found here.

Public Information Meeting on the Sherwood Forest School site – Sept 3

The City of London will be hosting a Public Information Meeting to introduce, and seek the public’s comment on a draft land use option for the redevelopment of the former Sherwood Forest Public School site and associated playfields.

Location: City Hall 2nd Fl Committee Room #1 & 2
300 Dufferin Avenue, City Hall
Date: Wednesday, September 03, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Unfortunately, the City was unable to find a venue in the area for this meeting. They wanted an early September meeting in order to make a public participation meeting at the City Council Planning Committee on October 7, so that a decision would be in front of City Council at its last meeting (October 14) before the municipal election.

Please contact Brian Turcotte at 519-661-2500 ext. 4651, or email bturcott@london.ca for further details about the Public Information Meeting. Residents in Orchard Park/Sherwood Forest will be getting a letter in mail as well.
