Triple Crown Line Developments is hosting an open house to discuss a proposed high-density development in Caledon East.

The developers have submitted a revised proposal to the Town to accommodate more housing, according to a memo published by the Town of Caledon. A meeting is scheduled on Monday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the banquet hall in the Caledon East Community Centre.

“We are holding an open house to present our revised draft plan of subdivision to the residents of Caledon, said Trevor Hall, project manager of planning for DG Group. During the statutory public meeting on April 3rd, 2018 we committed to hosting an open house presenting the revised plan. This open house provides the opportunity for the public to voice any questions or concerns with the plan. It also allows our team to provide additional information on various elements of the plan in a more personal setting.” 

DG Group wants to create about 554 single detached lots, 10 blocks to accommodate 67 townhouse units with one block to accommodate 20 single detached resident condominium units, one high density block to accommodate 17 to 30 resident units, park blocks, an open space block and a network of public roads. Development is planned for 15717 and 15505 Airport Rd. 

They also want to make an amendment to the Offical Plan to relocate the conceptual neighbour park to a more central location, introduce a high-density residential designation to permit 49 to 85 units per net resident hectare and amend the low-density resident policies among other changes. Further, they would also like to make an amendment to the zoning by law to change agricultural designate areas to residential.

Hall said residents can expect a brief presentation by the team, highlighting the key elements of their plan.

“After the presentation is complete, the remaining time is dedicated to the public asking our team any questions they have about the plan, said Hall. We will have various panels set up around the room highlighting different elements of the plan to be used as illustrative tools.”

The company has been building in the Region of Peel for over 50 years, according to Hall.

“The Region of Peel and the Town of Caledon are great communities to live in, and to be a part of, said Hall. The Town of Caledon designated these lands to become a residential neighbourhood no earlier than 2016 and we are pleased to be supporting the already thriving community of Caledon East.”

Hall said the goal is to have the draft approved by May 2019. The changes were made after comments were received on their first submission from representatives of the Town, residents of Caledon and commenting agencies. 

DG Group has built housing located at Emil Kolb Parkway and King Street in Bolton.
