The hearing is November 20 at 1 PM.  Details are in the notice re: meeting times and where to send letters.

We will write a letter and make a 5 minute presentation at the hearing.  We will provide you with a copy when it is written.

We encourage the neighbours to participate.

How you can participate:

  1. Write a letter to the Committee of Adjustment to indicate your position. Letters are due 5 days before the hearing. We would appreciate it if you could e-mail a copy of your letter to us.
  2. Attend the hearing.  It’s important to have some neighbours there to respond to questions from the panel members and also to indicate that there is interest in the community. We would appreciate it if you could let us know if you plan to attend.

Description from the architect (Jacques Hamel):

We are proposing a semi-detached building on a 47′ (14.30 m) wide lot.  One of the units will have a garage,  whereas the other one will have at grade parking in the front yard.  Both are quite different from each other and will each have their own identity.  They are two stories at the front with rooftop decks facing the park.  Behind the deck is a third floor (comprising approximately one third of the 2nd floor area.)

Unit 1 lot area is 231 sm.  and Unit 2 is 204 sm.  Unit 1 is 2535 gsf (235.5 gsm),  and Unit 2 is 2345 gsf (218 gsm). The proposal is to subdivide into unequal parcels (one is narrower than the other).


  • Architect Jacques Hamel will present the proposal.
  • Champlain Park Community Association executive members will then facilitate a discussion with the neighbours (after the architect leaves).

Our membership list now has voluntary e-mail addresses. We are sending this to the surrounding neighbours in a blind cc.

Your participation is important. Please reserve this date.
