Hey! What happened to the Notice Sign in front of the Velmar Plaza? Was there a decision made?

By September 29, 2019 September 2nd, 2022 City of Vaughan

Now you see it… And now you don’t.  There has been NO DECISION made for or against the proposed development at Velmar Plaza.  The Owner of the Plaza, also the developer of the proposed Condo Building, has removed the sign.  But he did this against the City Rules.

According to city rules (view able here), the sign was removed prematurely.  It can only be removed if a decision has been made.  The exact wording is as follows:

This is the exact text on page 4.

8.0 Removal of and Amendments to Notice Sign(s)

8.1 The Notice Sign(s) shall be removed within seven (7) days after any one of the following events:

8.1.1 the application(s) is/are approved or refused by Vaughan Council and there is no appeal; or lapses; or is withdrawn

8.1.2 the application(s) is/are approved or refused by the Region of York or the Ontario Municipal Board

Also, the Notice sign has to be clearly visible.  As most residents pointed out, the original sign was hidden behind trees and was not clearly visible.

The ratepayers association has asked for the sign to be returned.

Now its here....
