Rob Browning started this petition to Homeowners

To the residents of Dundas Ontario 


You may not be aware of the proposal by Columbia College, the new owners of 574 Northcliffe Ave, and
what it will mean for the entire area, not just the 37 houses on Maryvale, Zellens, Northcliffe and
Atkinson. The proposal is to convert the former convent, which was built as a residence for 200, to a
1000 student international high school. The high school will also employ over 100 staff, including
teachers, custodians and security to name a few. There will be tremendous impact to the environment,
health and safety.
Pleasant View is a corridor for wildlife and they need to be able to travel up and down the escarpment
without the added stress of more humans, more traffic and more pollution.
There is only one way in and out of this beautiful area. The roads leading to Northcliffe were not
designed for 20-40 busses 4 times a day. York road is already backed up to highway 6 every day. Imagine
trying to get up and down York with this extra traffic. It isn’t safe, for us or the wildlife.
The Niagara Escarpment Commission (NEC) is the governing body that will decide if the proposal,
introduced by Columbia College, will be accepted or denied. The NEC is the first step in the process, and
hopefully, the last.
We ask that you do your part to ensure the area is protected for all, now and for many years in the
future. A few in the community have banded together to go door to door to create awareness and get
signatures so we can present to the NEC either electronically or in person before the September
deadline. We know many voices would help make a difference. If you feel so inclined, please mail or
email:
