Origin

(June 13, 2016) Report from the City Solicitor

Summary

St. Michael's Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children are concerned that potential development and associated construction could interfere with the flight paths for their respective heliports.  The Province has issued a Minister's Zoning Order that regulates development within these flight paths, but it will expire at the end of September 2017.  The City must contemplate the most effective approach towards regulating development within proximity to these hospitals.

 

The City Solicitor requires further directions.
