Meeting about severing 135 John

Nunziata’s office will be hosting a meeting to consider whether the owner of 135 John should be allowed to sever the lot and construct two new homes, with 8m wide lots.

The meeting will be at 7 pm on Monday, January 29 at Weston Memorial, . The owners will be there to present their case.

The OMB recently recently rejected a similar case just down the street at 96 John, in which the owners had asked to create two 7.5m lots. That appeal was denied on the grounds that the smaller lots would destabilize the character of the neighbourhood.

  1. It’s going to be interesting to see how many realtors and builders show up in support of this severance. The owner, himself, is both. They will talk about change and investment. Their interest is only valued with dollar signs, not actual community investment.

    I am all for change, but I don’t want to open up Pandora’s box in regards to lot severing. If allowed, I could see swarms of realtors/builders begin to knock on doors of anyone that owns a lot over 50 feet wide urging people to sell and displacing them. Weston has something really unique here that is not ‘cookie-cutter’. Preserving this is important. I don’t want to live in a future Mississauga, I want to live in Weston.

  2. i don’t understand what is wrong with building two new homes on 26 ft lots ..
    It will bring great change to the neighborhood and more value … it’s not like the neighborhood doesn’t have 25 foot lots …
    only difference is these new homes will be gorgeous.. go look at some other neighborhoods where it’s happening …
    or do you people want Weston to stay behind..

  3. Weston is already behind and will fall behind more because all these people care about is adding more crappy towers

  4. Exactly ,
    They are against building custom homes that will add value to the neighbourhood because they can stop them and they take it to the next level .
    But when it comes to these towers that will devalue the neighbourhood I don’t hear no meetings against them and nobody is making a big fuss about them .
    Get real people
