Mr. Obregon’s deputation, Committee of the Whole, Nov 26, 2013, 7 pm, Item #2 (File 26.3)

Committee of the Whole (Public Hearing)
Tuesday November 26th, 2013 at 7 pm
Item 2. Draft Concord GO Centre Secondary Plan (File 26.3)

Deputation by Mr. Jean François Obregon of Glen Shields:

My name is Jean François Obregon and I’m a citizen of the Glen Shields area and my concern is – and I actually like this gentleman’s [points to Dr. Correa] idea of putting more green space along the Bartley Smith Greenway area.  There’s a huge opportunity here to preserve biodiversity.  There’s an amount of biodiversity here that I don’t think we have in other parts of the region.  There’s actually deer and possums in this area.  And I would actually say that you have a huge opportunity to ensure that there are deer and possums there in the future and even more be producing native species and to really look into making that happen even with condo development.  If anything, it would probably make the condo development even more attractive over the long term if you can have those things maintained.  As well, and given that deer really need no disruptions, I would try to get rid of that horizontal street you’re proposing to make there for the new development.  That’s it.

Councillor Sandra Yeung Racco:
I’m sorry.  What horizontal street are you talking about?

Jean François Obregon:
The one just north of the condo development [as, for example, in the proposed Transit Network].  The grey.  Yes, because that would probably harm the deer and possums’ ability to move to and fro.

Councillor Sandra Yeung Racco:
OK.  Thank you
