June 22 (NEW DATE) – Save Byron Place Garage Sale
Developers are asking for the corner of Churchill and Byron to be rezoned so they can build a 6-storey, 76-unit building. This 6-storey mixed-use building will extend deep into the low-rise residential area in a way that is incompatible with the existing community in terms of mass and scale. Neighbours are working hard to ensure this proposal is revisited and a more compatible development. Neighbours are holding a garage sale on Byron Place on Saturday, June 15 from 8 a.m. to noon to help raise awareness. Funds raised from the Garage Sale will go towards to the “Coalition for Highcroft Ave.”’ to help pay for our legal team. If you have something we can sell contact Naomi to donate items for sale. Please join us on Saturday, June 22 from 8 am to noon on Byron Place!
