From Vaughan Environmental Showdown Averted

Via A fight against a proposed extension of Pine Valley Road through the middle of Boyd Conservation Area has ended before it began, thanks to a land ownership agreement that stops development in its tracks.

From the article:

Red flags shot up a week ago when Vaughan environmental activists spotted a staff report on the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority website.

The report recommended, in part, the agency’s board oppose a proposal by the Region of York, as part of its Transportation Master Plan update, to look at extending Pine Valley Drive south from Rutherford Road down through Boyd Park to Clubhouse Road, to complete the missing link to Langstaff Road.

But at the time the TRCA report was tabled, regional staff had already abandoned the idea, in part after discovering just more than a month ago that the City Of Vaughan, back in 2009, transferred ownership of the entire portion of the park where the road could possibly go to the conservation authority.
