STOP THE SEVERANCE OF THE ANCASTER HIGH SCHOOL GROUNDS

November 24, 2018

PETITION TO ALEX JOHNSTONE, THE HAMILTON WENTWORTH DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEES AND THE PLANNING COMMITTEE COUNCILLORS FOR THE CITY OF HAMILTON                                                                                    

We the undersigned residents of Ancaster and surrounding areas wish to draw attention to the following list of concerns regarding the proposed severance of the Ancaster High School grounds: 

Severance will most probably lead to the sale of these lands to developers.

This in turn will lead to: 

An increase in traffic on Wilson street through Ancaster, Hwy 403 and in the  neighbourhoods around the high school. 

The loss of these grounds for activities such as football, safe children’s playgrounds, walking, running, cross-country skiing,  snowshoeing, picnicking, dog walking, Ancaster Heritage Days and fund raising events. 

The loss of trees, many of which have trunk circumferences in excess of 120 inches making them up to 180 years old. 

The loss of 10 soccer fields for the 2,100 members of the Ancaster Soccer Club.    

The loss of natural drainage of rainwater which would therefore put additional stress on the neighbourhood storm sewer infrastructure. 

The loss of the barriers on Taylor Road which would open up road access through the entire green space to Meadowbrook Drive thus adding traffic and noise. 

THEREFORE, the undersigned petitioners call upon Alex Johnstone, the Hamilton Wentworth District Board Trustees and the planning committee councillors for the City of Hamilton to:

 UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE PROPOSED SEVERANCE OF THE ANCASTER HIGH SCHOOL GROUNDS TO OCCUR AND THAT THESE GROUNDS IN THEIR ENTIRETY CONTINUE TO BE USED, AS INITIALLY INTENDED, FOR COMMUNITY ENJOYMENT.
