Shannon Avenue and the Convent
Why does the city's portion of the widened Shannon Avenue have to come away from Byron Park, but the private lane portion on Ashcroft's property go further out? One idea to limit the impact on Shannon residents is to have the city's portion of the road match the alignment of Ashcroft's driveway. Perhaps that's the idea, but Ashcroft's site plan doesn't reflect the city's actual plans for their part of the road.
UPDATE: news from the councillor's office is that the sidewalk isn't part of the city's plans and there is also an intention to narrow the city's portion. So that's good.
