Below is a message from the South Forest Hill Residents Association (SFHRA):
Dear Concerned Citizen:
The Developers of 390-398 Spadina Road continue to show complete disregard for the local community. The lawyer representing the Armel Group and their Associates,at the OMB pre-hearing on March 1st committed to provide a modified plan prior to the August 8th OMB pre-hearing. To date, none of the four groups with Party Status (including SFHRA) have received any revisions to the original plan.
With the exception of the Heritage building at 404 Spadina Road, the Developers own the city block from Lonsdale to Montclair Avenue. This development would set an unwelcome and dangerous precedent that would destroy the character and quality of Forest Hill Village.
What can you do?
We are pleased to report that we reached our April goal and have now raised $15,000 to support the fight! We do not have sufficient funds to hire the expertise we need. Going forward, our goal is to raise $10,000 before the next OMB pre-hearing on August 8th. We can win this fight if we have the necessary resources!! Please give what you can and encourage your friends and neighbours to contribute to the South Forest Hill Residents Association.
Here is how you can do your part in Saving our Village!
- Drop off your cheque made out to South Forest Hill Residents Association at 350 Lonsdale Rd (24 hour concierge). Please write attention: Mona Kornberg.

After awaiting the results from the engineering assessment carried out this past summer for the Glen Cedar Bridge, it is nice to see that my request for a temporary measure to provide a clear view of the ravine was approved and carried out this Fall. Viewing windows have been created on both sides of the bridge since the sidewalk platforms were able to be re-enforced and stabilized to meet safety standards. Thanks to the residents passing by who provided their opinion to help decide the window locations! The full remediation work for the bridge should begin at the end of summer 2017 with final completion expected in Spring 2018. I will be meeting with city staff in the New Year to go over the full scope of work for the bridge. A community consultation will be scheduled for residents to learn more and provide feedback sometime in late winter. For further details see the previous post from July 2016.
