From City Hall: Protecting Neighbourhoods from Tall Buildings

City Council recently adopted a set of Tall Building guidelines.  On the positive side, the guidelines should do a better job of requiring developers to think more about how their buildings relate to sidewalks, open spaces and other tall buildings.  But what about how they affect people living in the much smaller homes nearby?

My motion to ask Planning staff to strengthen the protection for residents passed. Unanimously.  Certainly a rarity at Council meetings in recent years.
