Cornell Precinct Plan Open House Nov 10

The Town of Markham has initiated a study to ensure that recent development proposals submitted by various landowners in and around Cornell adhere to the original vision for the area. Some of the proposals on the table do not conform to the existing Secondary Plan (the zoning agreed upon by the Town and community in 2008). The Cornell Rate Payers Association wants to ensure that the principals and flow dictated by the Secondary Plan are upheld. The Town of Markham and the CRPA invite members of the Cornell community to drop into a public open house to view a display visualizing the proposed future development of lands bordered by Hwy 7, Donald Cousens Parkway, York Durham Town line, and Highway 407. This display will feature designs for retail, commercial, employment, residential, and open spaces. It will depict plans for transportation, roads, and traffic flow as well as suggestions for building heights and densities. Representatives from the Town will be on hand to answer questions, listen and take feedback.

Petition to name Cornell’s new Community Centre & Library

East Markham 'Cornell' Community CentreWith the construction of a new community centre and associated library at Bur Oak Avenue and Church Street now underway, it has since come to the attention of the Cornell Rate Payers Association that this structure is currently being referred to as the “East Markham Community Centre and Library”.

In keeping with the naming tradition of the Town’s other community centres such as the Angus Glen, Milliken Mills, Markham Village, Box Grove, and Mount Joy Community Centres, a proposal has been put forth to replace “East Markham” with “Cornell”, with the resulting name being the “Cornell Community Centre and Library”.

In addition, given the rate of growth the Town of Markham has experienced over the years, the phrase “East Markham” is a most ambiguous term for many residents. In contrast, Cornell is a well-known area of Markham, and as such, is a community that is very identifiable and easily located. Renaming the community centre and associated library would therefore ensure that its location is more accurately conveyed to residents of the Town of Markham.
