Our group (Chedoke Browlands Community) was formed as a result of a community. Planning and Economic Development public meeting on June 10th 2010. In the absence of a formal neighborhood association, a group of people have come together with a common interest and passion to protect and preserve as much of the Browlands as possible. We are not so naive as to believe that we would be successful if we pursued a “no development” agenda – rather, we strive to protect the Browlands and minimize the development impact on our community now and for future generations.
We are a small group of ten who bring to the table a variety of professional backgrounds, talents and resources. The group is not incorporated but have appointed a President, and a Treasurer and assigned roles to members eg Communication, Fund Raising, Site Planning etc. These functions are critical to our success.
Protecting our Browlands is a difficult, complex and expensive process to undertake for a small group of volunteers. We care deeply about our community, the escarpment, watershed, and protecting our green space. What do you envision for our community? Your support will make a difference.
We were successful and raised $5000 to commission a land use planner to review the Browlands development proposal on our behalf. This is just the beginning; it is likely we will require the services of a lawyer as well.
Recently, Deanlee (the land owner) filed an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board with the intent of having the Board approve the high density land development proposal.
It is critical for our community to convince City Council that the Deanlee proposal is not the best interest for our community, that a comprehensive land use plan that will preserve and protect our Browlands and green space is warranted.
