  1. So 8 Oak St goes? Hard to decipher the wording but “without beautification” as well? And no speed bumps, in spite of the hiccup of 18 ballots returned undelivered??

    1. I have updated the article – there were no details of the amendments as of last night but the Oak building will be checked for heritage value before any demolition can take place.

  2. I’m going through the Community Council meeting agenda here For Rosemount it reads:

    EY19.21 Traffic Calming Poll Results – Rosemount Avenue (Ward 11) Amended

    The motion was to NOT proceed with speed humps, and so if it was Adopted that would have been a no (there are a few other speed hump motions like this). Since it was Amended I can only hope that means we’re getting speed humps.

    1. You’re right Chris, as soon as the minutes reflect the amendment, I’ll post details. I would be surprised if speed bumps weren’t installed. They were on Hickory tree with a far smaller response rate.

  3. Oh and 8 Oak St…”heritage value”? What’s so special about a giant square block of bricks!? Tear it down and build housing for Syrians! 🙂

    1. Take a look at the detail in the brick work, decorative, delightful, like the careful joy in craft my great uncle took as a brick layer who worked on Maple Leaf Gardens. And keeping the shell would allow that to be preserved and enjoyed.
