Movie night debrief:
It was a crisp but clear night on August 23- perfect backdrop for the 4th edition of the Movie in the Park. There was popcorn, not one but two firefighter trucks, mini donuts, animals balloons, cotton candy, Lionel the mascot… all capped off by Lego Movie 2 and lots of laughs!
Your Association would like to thank: Marie-France Lalonde, MPP, Matt Luloff, Councillor, and Andrew Leslie, MP, for their support. Thank you as well to our partners: Cinestarz, Boston Pizza, Allstate, SpinSugar Candy, Donutrainonmyparade, and KidsLoveFun.
See you next year!

Update on 3030 St-Joseph Blvd, corner of Dufort and St-Joseph from our President, Emilie-Anne Duval:
I, along with Councillor Luloff and fellow residents attended a meeting of the Design Committee at City Hall this afternoon. The builder has come back with a rectangular building with a smaller footprint, with a higher rise of 17 stories. The first few floors are wider, with the upper floors more narrow. The bottom corner is a terrasse area, and the footpath to cut through the hill is gone. The committee members asked them to look at further slendering the building, to provide pedestrian views ( the ones provided were from a higher vista), and to explore options to keep a path to cut through. There will likely be a meeting for the community with the building sometime in November at Ray Friel (which we will make sure to advertise in this group). There are no current plans for a further meeting with the city- also to note that the design committee meetings occur before any formal proposal can be made to the planning committee.
Our meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm.
Hope to see you there!
