On June 13th, 2017, Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) voted to approve a staff report based on our recommendations for laneway suites. Shortly after, TEYCC’s vote was ratified by City Council. With nearly 200 letters, and 18 deputations, the outpouring of support was undeniable.
On May 2nd, 2018, TEYCC heard the competed staff report and proposed by-laws. They deferred voting on the subject for 1 month to seek additional input from City Staff. Yet again, there were nearly 200 letters, and 14 deputations, the vast majority of which were in support.
On June 6th, TEYCC will vote to adopt the proposed report and by-laws, possibly with amendments. If that goes through, the decision will still need to be ratified by City Council at the end of June.
