1.4. The solution to the continuing refusal to provide the Concord West community with its lawful access to greenspaces
The simple solution to the problems of access to the surrounding greenspaces, currently denied to Concord West residents, and to the current threat posed to the ecological niche in the land adjoining to the east the Concord West community would be:
1) To request that the Province of Ontario transfer the land in question, presently owned by the Ontario Realty Corporation, to the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (i) for purposes of its amalgamation with the Bartley Smith Greenway/Langstaff Ecopark AND (ii) in order to restore presently denied and rightful direct access of the Concord West residents to the Bartley Smith Greenway/Langstaff Ecopark and the Glen Shields community
2) To provide the residents of the Concord West community safe access to the ORC land in question as the community’s greenspace, and direct access to the Bartley Smith Greenway/Langstaff Ecopark and the Glen Shields community, by building an underground passageway located at the end of Rockview Gardens, that would run beneath the existing CN rail line. This should be accompanied by the proper fencing in of the CN railway line for the safety of Concord West residents, in particular children.
