CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I am not opposed to dense neighbourhoods. The physical infrastructure in this neighbourhood makes the addition of an apartment building desirable. I do think about parking and how this will be incorporated into the development planning. I would also like to know what something like this will add to our community in terms of beautification and social infrastructure. Small commercial spaces for local businesses such as coffee shops, art hives, bicycle repair shops have the ability to transform a neighbourhood. Commercial use on the ground level can also add to the overall safety of the neighbourhood. The condo building at the end of 136 street and Woodcroft ave is well maintained and adds to the street.

We are opposed to this change. Parking in this area is already very busy difficult for people that live in the single family dwellings around there and since the requirement for developers to ensure there is space for parking has been removed, that will just exacerbate the problem. Also when there is a bus coming one way on 115 ave, a car going the other way has to find a place to move over. The area is already high enough density and there is sufficient commercial space available in nearby areas that are appropriate for it. The zoning should remain at the current RF3.

We oppose the idea. No need for more infill housing or buildings in the neighbourhood - there area lot of those in the neighbourhood already. However the thought of a single story small coffee shop would be appealing, provided that off-street parking was available.

We already have more then enough row housing in our neighbourhood! No thank you.

There is already many multi unit buildings in the immediate vicinity, but I think a 4 story building would have little impact on the sunlight in the area as the large condo complexes nearby have already cast their shadows. I would appreciate a commercial space for a small coffee shop or something similar for the neighbourhood. While there is a lot of commercial space in Westmount, there isn’t a lot of walkable amenities right in woodcroft. However a parking plan should be considered (ie underground parking for residents) as the street parking around the area is busy already and the lot may not be large enough to accommodate a sufficient parking lot for residents and commercial traffic

I am opposed to this rezoning. The zoning sought is too broad and the neighbourhood will not be bettered by another apartment building. We already have diverse housing options in our area nothing about this proposal is meant to appeal to current members of the community. It ONLY serves this interest of the developer!

As a home owner in the Woodcroft community, the last thing I want is an apartment style building. I feel and apartment building in that location would be so out of place in the neighborhood. An infill duplex or something along those lines would make a lot more sense. Throwing up an apartment style building in thst area would ruin the esthetic of Woodcroft neighborhood. I am also concerned about the apartment style building breeding more crime in our neighborhood as these types of buildings have shown bring more crime to to area they're located.

I am opposed to the proposed rezoning re: low rise apartment development with concerns over traffic congestion and the negative impact on the neighbourhood.
I would approve of quality side by side duplex units/home owners with designated parking stalls within the property site.

We already have 2 massive buildings to the south of us with the Christenson Developments and the Matheson Building which has made parking on the streets around it near impossible for household residents. This development will likely add to the parking problem.
In addition the shadow cast by the aforementioned properties and now a building to the west will impact the amount of sunlight in the surrounding neighbourhood.
115 ave is already starting to show increased car, bus, truck and bike traffic which is unsafe for children playing in the area. Another multi-storey building would increase the traffic and thus decrease the safety for pedestrian and bike traffic.
A single family detached home would be more desirable in the proposed properties.

There is a lot of commercial land around this area particularly near and around Westmount mall. Having this directly in the neighbourhood when there is already a large building/senior centre will cause for impacts on shadowing/sun/ wind. I personally am opposed to this development because of the location within the neighbourhood.

I oppose this development, if I wanted to live around more tall buildings I would have moved downtown.
The community would be better served with detached homes.

Density increase is not in the best interest of the area.

Harry 3 months ago

I don't think this location is appropriate for the proposed rezoning. The neighbourhood does not lack commercial space, and there are already high-density housing developments in the area and adjacent neighbourhoods. The increased traffic poses a safety risk as well as potential congestion, noise, and pollution. The community would ve much better served by smaller, detached or semi-detached single-family homes or a park/green space for everyone to enjoy.

Dr D 3 months ago

I don't believe this location is best for multi unit housing. 115 ave is used by cars, bikes and buses. There are already cars parked on the one side of the street where the apartments are. I think with this rezoning there will be too much congestion on that road.

Marty 3 months ago

This is already a very busy area in Woodcroft. In my opinion, a duplex is the largest housing option that should be considered, as parking is already becoming an issue.

Kari 3 months ago

I am opposed to this re-zoning. Woodcroft is already a very busy area, with parking becoming an issue, especially near this area. An apartment with multiple families/people/vehicles is not something that will help these issues. There shouldn't be anything bigger than a duplex in that area.
