Blue Goose Redevelopment

We’ve been hearing rumours about redevelopment of the Blue Goose for some time. Here are the details!

The proposal is to retain and restore this building to 4-storeys in height which would include a new micro-brewery (basement level), a renovated restaurant (ground level), and a total of 18 new rental dwelling units (second to fourth level). In addition, the proposal includes an infill development of 2 single detached dwellings, a pair of semi-detached dwellings, and 9 townhouse units (4-storeys in height). On November 15, 2016 Etobicoke York Community Council adopted the request to include The Blue Goose Tavern on the City of Toronto’s Heritage Register.

Letter from Mayor Tory Re: Road Tolls

We’ve posted Mayor Tory’s response to Councillor Grimes regarding Road Tolls on our blog: www.mimicoresidents.ca/letter-from-mayor-tory-re-road-tolls/
Excerpt: “As you highlight in your letter, investment in infrastructure is critical. Years of underinvestment in transit, in particular, have created mounting challenges associated with traffic and congestion, and we simply cannot go on this way. As we work together to identify efficiencies and opportunities to modernize City Hall, we must also honestly recognize that, in order to build the transit that we require to address the City’s traffic and congestion challenges, we need new revenue sources.”
