When the City reached this agreement with a group of Holmwood residents opposed to aspects of the Lansdowne Partnership Plan back in April, the news was greeted with a great sense of relief at City Hall. We had, it seemed, avoided a costly trip to the Ontario Municipal Board, not to mention more delays. Well it seems those Holmwood residents aren't too pleased with the way things have unfolded since then. Here's a letter from their lawyer, received by the City's legal department last night and shared with councillors today.
It should be noted that when a couple councillors brought the letter up at today's council meeting, city lawyers seemed unruffled by the latest legal threat.
