Welcome to the web site of the
Mirvish Village Task Group (MVTG)
Our purpose is to provide accurate, accessible and up-to-date information on the proposed Honest Ed’s and Mirvish Village redevelopment and on Planning policies and studies impacting the 4 corners of Bathurst and Bloor and environs.
The MVTG is a committee of the Palmerston Area Residents’ Association (PARA) with additional members from the three adjacent residents’ associations – Seaton Village (SVRA), the Annex (ARA) and Harbord Village (HVRA). Our aim is to provide an informed critique of the proposals for the Mirvish Village site reflecting neighbourhood perspectives.
Here you will find the “public record” — that is, what has been published in a public forum, such as a submission to City Planning or Community Council as well as responses to City Planning, Heritage and Westbank without a vested interest in the development
We are very much in process. Westbank put forward its first proposal in the fall of 2015, and has received extensive feedback from City Planning and other sources. The Westbank redevelopment proposal is large and complex; it’s not easy to grasp all of the detail or to assess all the implications. We highly recommend that you read City Planning Comments about Westbank’s application as it raises most of the issues about which we too are concerned.
Early in 2016, Westbank will come back with a revised proposal. We will be involved in the process of assessment and public engagement again. It is essential to the health and ecology of our neighbourhood that we – all of us – use our influence to shape this development for the long-term public good.
