The online publication, Just Sayin Caledon, interviewed me recently about the Mayfield West MZO. I’m sharing a link to this interview to share the facts and provide clarity https://justsayincaledon.com/jsc-talks-to-caledon-mayor-allan-thompson-about-mayfield-west-mzo/?fbclid=IwAR3l5XHh9T4DV9mxkGwULakdU5C4OP20oUyEcikxMTP3WUT4fsn6Nl0CXSQ
A Ministerial Zoning Order was issued for the Mayfield West phase two/stage two development in Caledon. This is good news and will at long last complete this community in south/west Caledon
Getting shovels in the ground will help stimulate our economy during these unprecedented times. Once complete, this community will be home to 7600 residents and 550 jobs.
On behalf of Caledon Council, our communities and staff, I want to thank Minister Steve Clark, Dufferin/Caledon MPP Hon. Sylvia Jones and the entire Ford Government for listening, acting and by recognizing that this development fully complied with Provincial Policy.
It is important to note that this development went through a transparent and robust public consultation process with seven public meetings taking place since 2017. It’s also important to know that the experienced and professional planning staff at both the Town of Caledon and Region of Peel recommended, in detailed planning reports, the approval of this development. The decision to hold it back was inconsistent and confusing.
I’m extremely grateful that with the Province’s help Mayfield West will now become a complete community.
