Sunnyside Neighbourhood Parkland Petition

This petition had 232 supporters

Whereas a park and recreation analysis of 2011 indicates that Sunnyside is one of the most deficient neighbourhoods in terms of parkland per capita, and

Whereas the population of the area has increased significantly since then, and

Whereas the Provincial Policy Statement calls for a full range and equitable distribution of publicly-accessible parklands, and

Whereas there are no other sites for increasing parkland in this neighbourhood and

Whereas the City purchased the St. Joseph’s/St. Mary’s school site primarily for parkland, and

Whereas 75% of the site is currently open recreational space, and

Whereas this site has been extensively used by the community during summer vacation and non-school hours

Now therefore City Council be requested that any future use of this site provide for the same amount of public open space as has been enjoyed by the community for almost 70 years.
