The LPC is working on a new map-based portal for learning about heritage structures and features in Alderwood, Long Branch, New Toronto and Mimico.
On April 1, 2011 Armstrong Hunter and Associates, land use planners for Longo Properties, submitted a private planning application for a proposed Official Plan amendment to the Toronto Official Plan to the Etobicoke-York District Community Planning department. The application raises the prospect of removing or demolishing heritage features during redevelopment of the Amadeo Garden Court apartments.
You can learn more about the proposed development as it currently stands at the 2521 - 2543 Lake Shore Boulevard West Overview page. A flyer which explains what has taken place and the heritage of the site is attached.
Long Branch, in the southwest corner of Etobicoke, was once known as ‘cottage country’ for Toronto’s elite, starting in the 1880s. A military’s rifle range — Long Branch Rifle Range — just west of Long Branch in Mississauga was named after it. Canada’s first Aerodrome was also just west of Long Branch. A community of houses that used to be located alongide Etobicoke Creek, in what is now Marie Curtis Park, was devastated by Hurricane Hazel in 1954. A major psychiatric hospital was located just east of it in New Toronto.
On June 2, Jaan Pill, President of the Long Branch Historical Society, and former area resident Mike James will lead this very first of several Heritage Rides to debut across the city during Bike Month 2012, supported by members of Etobicoke South Cycling Committee. Thomas Hasan, cycling advocate and initiator of the Heritage Rides, will open the event.
To learn more about this and the other rides happening through the Summer, please visit the Heritage Rides home page.
The ESCC wishes to thank the Lakeshore Planning Council for its support.
We look forward to seeing YOU there!
