Politicians, Developers, & Residents Together…Walking Queen St E – Episode #80

City Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, developers, and the residents of the Beaches met at the Fire Hall on Queen St E to embark on a walk between Woodbine Ave & Lee Ave.

The purpose of this walk was to inform residents about ‘potential’ attractive development sites in this area. Developers openly discussed which areas they felt were great development projects and why.

The developers discussed 5 areas of interest:

1. Woodbine Ave – Shell Gas Station
2. Ends & Bin Store
3. Licks Restaurant
4. Beach Mall
5. TD Bank

This walk definitely sparked anger and frustration with the residents of the Beach. Some are against future development as they feel it takes away from the current character of the beach whereas others welcome future development as they feel it will revitalize the beach in a positive way.

I will keep you posted on any developments related to this story. I am sure there will be much more to come.
