For nine days in June, Councillor Partridge and residents attended the Ontario Municipal Board hearings to oppose this development. The city solicitor did an excellent job of presenting reasons for opposing the site and cross examination of the developer’s witnesses. Special recognition to residents Michael Hawkrigg, Cindy Mayor and Jim Duschl for outstanding research and presentation to the hearing judge. General themes from residents included too high density for the site, traffic concerns, lack of green space and site elevation grading concerns with existing residential properties. The OMB Case file is No. PL160498: 383 Dundas Street, East, Hamilton. For any updates and further information, please email the neighbourhood group at firstname.lastname@example.org. The hearing judge ruling is expected in approximately six to eight weeks.
