The Carleton Tavern and the Hintonburg Economic Development
Committee are hosting the 12th annual Christmas Day Dinner at
the Carleton Tavern, 223 Armstrong at Parkdale. Each year the day
gets bigger and bigger and it has become a tradition for many in
the community. Last year about 650 meals were served, either in the
Tavern, or delivered to people who could not come, thanks to our
amazing volunteers. At the end of the day any remaining food is taken
to various rooming houses and a family shelter in the neighbourhood.
It is an important day to not be alone, but to spend together with other
people. Musicians donate their time to bring the joyous sounds of carols and music to all those in attendance.
Donations of turkeys, baked goods and gifts are needed to make this a day to remember (especially new warm
items for men such as socks, gloves and scarves). Items can be dropped at the Carleton Tavern anytime during
the week before Christmas. For more information, call Cheryl at 728-7582 or e-mail [email protected]

foulards). Ces articles peuvent être déposés à la Carleton Tavern n’importe quand durant la semaine avant Noël.

Welcome to our new
Board members!
Bienvenue aux nouveaux
membres du conseil !
Appealing to the
Ontario Municipal Board
— A risky business
As readers have probably heard, the HCA settled its
Ontario Municipal Board appeal of the City’s
decision to permit Claridge to construct
a mixed-use 23-storey building at 1050
Somerset Avenue on October 17, 2012.
The Minutes of Settlement are posted in
full on our website at www.hintonburg.
The HCA held its latest Annual
General Meeting on September 27th
with approximately 85 people in
attendance. There were reports from
the HCA President, as well as from
Committee Chairs. The AGM was
followed by an “Open Forum”
discussion. An election was held
for the Board of Directors. The
2012-2013 Board members
are: Jay Baltz, Anthony Bruni,
Dickson Davidson, Paulette Dozois,
Sharon Fernandez, Eddie Fu, Linda
Hoad, Jeff Leiper, Barbara Long, Robert
McLean, Stefan Matiation, Kerry Millican,
Pat O’Brien, Nicholas Olmstead, Cheryl Parrott,
Wayne Rodney, James Valcke, Thomas Williams and
Matt Whitehead.
The Board of Directors struggled with a choice
between accepting the risks of pursuing the
appeal or negotiating a settlement to ensure
that some of the community concerns would be
Regrettably, the settlement does not affect the
height that was approved for the development by
City Council. A reduction in height was our first
negotiating position but this was rejected by Claridge
and the City. We then requested benefits which had
been identified in discussions with the community,
including space for a daycare, parking space for
Devonshire teachers, control of traffic in the lane, a
wind study, and more bicycle and car-share parking.
With our lawyer’s help, we worked through the course
of two days to make the minutes of settlement as
advantageous and air-tight as possible.
A big thank you goes to outgoing board members
Gemma Boag and Valerie Stam, as well as to
Nicholas Olmstead, outgoing Treasurer, and
Carol Paschal who stepped down as Chair of the
Communications Committee.
The executive was acclaimed at the first meeting of
the new board of directors and includes Jeff Leiper
(President), Matt Whitehead (Vice-President), James
Valcke (Secretary) and Eddie Fu (Treasurer).
The HCA was prepared for the hearing: our
lawyer and planner had assembled the “Book of
Documents” which each party at a hearing has to
share with all the other parties; we had photographs
taken to illustrate the character of the community;
we made photocopies and assembled five copies of
the 220 page book.
Le comité de direction de cette année a été élu lors de la
première réunion du nouveau conseil d’administration.
Il se compose de Jeff Leiper (président), Matt Whitehead
(vice-président), James Valcke (secrétaire) et Eddie Fu
In presenting the Minutes of Settlement to the Board,
the City’s planner indicated that the By-law under
appeal represented good planning. However, our
lawyer and planner did not concede that the zoning
By-law represents good planning. Instead, our
planner stated that the settlement does not address
HCA concerns about height and compatibility, but
does represent an acceptable outcome in the public
interest. The HCA thanks members and residents for
the financial and moral support you have offered.
