Important Information regarding 4189 and 4195 King Street East

Hi there,
Irv Burke at 80 wagon St. (corner of Grand Hill Dr.) I am a former director of the SGCA Association and wanted to bring the Association members up to date on the empty lot at the corner. It seems that Canuck Properties (that owned the small sliver of a lot at the very corner (where the car wash was going to go) is now the full owner of the whole lot. They bought the large section of land from Kings Buffet (next to Century 21) recently.
Take a look at the plan for the lot. They are putting up quite a few buildings that include a bar with patio, a drive thru, a gas station, and many parking spots at the back next to the homes on Grand Hill and Wagon Street.  All this being kept in by a 5 foot fence??
Gord and Daphne Nicholls and Doug Brunton from the Grand Hill Association are active in following up with the Scott Patterson the local architect, as well as with city councillor John Gazzola. They're concerned with pollutants leeching into the water table as they are on wells in the Grand Hill  neighbourhood- a very real concern.
As neighbours bordering the site (Including the folks on Baden Crt.) we should also be concerned with the pollution aspect  as well as the noise that a bar, drive thru and gas station will give off at all hours of the day. Also, lighting is a big factor from both the parking lot and the cars that will use the back spots. Furthermore,  the whole of Deer Ridge should be concerned with the traffic making a quick  right into the plaza from Deer Ridge Drive. There's a potential for rear end accidents for sure.
There will be a meeting in a week or 2 for all concerned neighbours with the architect to get informed and voice their opinions. We  will update the date and time when we have firm plans.
KINDLY FEEL FREE TO CONTACT IRV BURKE @ interspanauto@rogers.com.
