SAVE FLEMINGDON PARK
Why this petition matters

Sign to demand:
- Rejection of the development proposal.
- An investigation and transparent consultation into the 25 St. Dennis Drive Subdivision Development.
Flemingdon Park is a beautiful, vibrant neighbourhood filled with immigrants from all across the world. At 22 000 residents, we are also one of the most densely packed and neglected neighbourhoods in the city. We have overcrowded schools, community centres given a failing grade by the City of Toronto themselves, and under-served transit lines. At 9000 residents per square kilometre, Flemingdon Park can literally NOT afford a 37 story development in the heart of the community.
This is about respect for our democratic processes.
The City of Toronto has not adequately consulted with the members of the community. In fact - there was absolutely no consultations held between May 2016 and October 2020. The one consultation held was sub-par - with late meeting notifications, hidden signs, broken links, and a repeated insistence that the “...substance of the application has already been approved” and application was “decided years ago”.
This is about respect for our community.
Recent comments made by councillors at the Nov. 4th North York Council Meeting, disrespected the speakers raising concerns and trying to speak for the community. By calling density “...a price to pay”, they are telling every single Flemingdon Park resident that they don’t matter, that they don’t deserve the same resources that every other resident of Toronto has, unless other people move in.
This is a matter of public health.
This poor planning will only cost the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario more down the line. We are only 8 months into a pandemic and already there have been many articles explaining the impact of high density, poorly-planned neighbourhoods. Becoming vectors for disease transmission only heightens the burden on our health-care system and will prevent our cities from bouncing back economically.
THE TORONTO CITY COUNCIL HAS DISRESPECTED FLEMINGDON PARK FOR TOO LONG. It’s time to speak up and show the Toronto City Council we will not be silent.
