A bad development has been proposed at Yonge Street & Bloomington Road, which will have a negative impact on our community. In my opinion, this kind of development has no place in our area and is what you would expect to see in a Key Development Area, which this is not.
The proposed development includes 13 apartment buildings ranging in height from 8 to 12 storeys with a total of 1,527 apartment dwelling units plus 370 townhouse dwelling units. This is considerably beyond what is currently permitted for this site and to achieve his goal, the developer would need to amend the Official Plan.
I believe that this proposed development is inappropriate for the site as the existing community facilities, transportation network, and school infrastructure cannot accommodate the increased density. Also, the proposed heights of the high-rise buildings are not in keeping with the area and will only serve to destabilize the adjacent stable community.
I have always expressed a strong interest in growth and I firmly believe that the future success of Richmond Hill depends on it. However, such growth should not compromise the integrity of established local residential neighbourhoods and the character of the surrounding community. It must be well planned, appropriate and in keeping with the surrounding community - This is not.
The requested variances in this plan are unacceptable for the development of this site and therefore I will oppose the developer’s Application.
I plan to fight this Application. In order to succeed, I need your help. I need you to write letters of opposition.

Dear members of Richmond Hill Council,
I am a resident of Oak Ridges – Ward 1 and I have been advised that you will be dealing with a planning application at Yonge Street & Bloomington Road, which will have a negative impact on our community.
I believe that this development as proposed is inappropriate for the site. The requested variances in this plan and the relief sought from the Official Plan are unacceptable.
Any future growth should not compromise the integrity of established local residential neighbourhoods and the character of the surrounding community. It must be well planned, appropriate and in keeping with the surrounding community- This is not.
Therefore, I am requesting that you support Councillor Beros efforts to protect our community and put an end to this Application. Please Councillors; I want to know that tomorrow’s generation will benefit from your wise decision today.
