To all Highwood Community Residents:
Are you concerned about the growing number of infills in our community?
We, as a community, can maintain control of this development and others in our neighbourhood and there are many ways to do it. But we must engage ourselves and have our voices heard. You may think “it’s in a different part of the neighbourhood, it doesn’t affect me’. However, if we let this one proceed it could, very well, happen right next door to you! Developments like these, left unchecked, run the risk of blocking views, blocking sunlight and encroaching on privacy by having windows overlooking into neighbouring property.
Many of our neighbouring communities have their controls in place to have their say and control future developments, however, Highwood has none, yet.
Please feel free to contact the city planning department, sign the following letter, or better yet, write your own!
