We suggest to remove the greenbelt portion of the land at 5172 Major Mackenzie Drive East for the following reasons:
1. The greenbelt portion at our land is a narrow strip ending at the main road Major Mac. Dr.
2. The greenbelt portion is at the southern side of our land creating a land-lock situation.
3. Our land was acquired in 2007 with a vision of building a worship place and community facilities. The land is included into the urban boundary in the 2022 York Region Official Plan approved by the Provincial Government. The greenbelt portion is restricting the development plan.
4. Bill 23 is about swapping greenbelt land to build more houses, however community facilities will also be needed when more houses are built.
