The changing appearance of older neighbourhoods in Oakville is at the heart of the Ward 2 by-election, as residents grow concerned about the number of larger infill developments replacing older single-family homes.
The infill issue has emerged as a hot topic among the 11 candidates vying to replace former councillor Pam Damoff, who was elected as the Oakville-North Burlington MP in last fall’s federal election. In interviews with NRU, candidates also raised Oakville’s housing affordability, transit and economic development as issues in the by-election set for April 11.
On infill development projects, several candidates said some neighbourhoods are in transition and the town needs to change how it deals with applications for minor variances. “You’re seeing a lot of teardowns and much, much bigger homes being built [in Ward 2],” said candidate Hart Jansson, contending that local residents do not have enough say about the type of changes that come with infill development.
