The Committee of Adjustment this afternoon deferred the application for a day-care facility at 105 Wells Hill Avenue.

The CLRA has been working closely with our residents and Councillor Josh Matlow and his team to obtain a deferral to allow for further study of safety and traffic congestion issues related to the location of the proposed day-nursery on a narrow and blind curve.

Twenty residents filed objections with the Committee of Adjustment for reasons of safety and traffic congestion. The CLRA has not seen this level of opposition before.

Our reason for the deferral was to ensure a big mistake wasn’t made where we would end up with a dangerous situation and extreme frustration for the whole community.

We congratulate Nick Saint-Martin and Robert Levy for their tenacious and effective leadership here and Councillor Josh Matlow and his team who embraced the concerns raised by the CLRA that more study was needed given the potential impact on the safety of our community.
