WVRA addresses Greenland Farms development

In a letter to WVRA members, the chair of the organization, Dave Bennett, has made clear the group’s stance on the Greenland Farms development.

Bennett says:

Our hope is that the team presenting this development continues to work with our many local community groups to improve their design so that we can also support the development of 1956 Weston Road.

I read this is as a rejection of the development as it currently is proposed—a rejection in line with those at the community meeting and by the city planner.

In the email to residents, Bennett says, “both owners and renters [are] welcome to join and be represented. And we welcome new Steering Committee members regularly who express an interest in making Weston Village a better place to live, work and play.​”
