It is Section-37 funding, so it will be spent to "benefit the community in the vicinity of the lands" (ie. within the same ward).I hope this affordable housing will be built on the outskirts to build as many self contained units as possible for the cheapest price.
Also, building affordable-housing "on the outskirts to build as many self contained units as possible for the cheapest price" is a pretty terrible policy.
Sure the land is cheap in a Transit-Desert in Malvern, but it is CHEAP for a reason... because the access to jobs and services is pretty terrible if you can't afford to own and operate a car.
The goal should be to create new Affordable-Housing units in mixed-income neighbourhoods where people can access Schools, Jobs and Services mostly within their "15-minute neighbourhoods".
Our data analysis confirms: this suburb’s average access to transit is three times worse than the City of Toronto.
