March 25 letter from GHG to Mayor and Council

The photo at the top of this website was taken in about 1920 by Edward Faraday Odlum from the top of the very tall flag pole in Victoria Park. The fire hall at Salsbury and Charles is gone, but pretty well all the original houses you can see in the photo are still here today.

Attached is a PDF letter our group sent to Mayor Robertson and Councillors about the Terms of Reference (TOR) for the Grandview Community Plan process. The TOR were scheduled to be presented to Council March 28. In our letter, we ask that the report be deferred in order for the TOR to be revised and expanded with regard to heritage and the neighbourhood context. We request that information in the TOR includes maps, zoning bylaws, design guidelines, and existing zoned capacity. We also request that the GHG be recognized as an official Working Group with standing in the Community Plan process.
