There is s basic issue here about how our city works:

City staff are there to serve the citizens. If people have mobilized to express how they want their neighbourhood to be, then staff should make it happen, NOT make excuses why the status quo should remain.

BTW Loserville - Ward 1 has some of the highest property value increases in the city due to the improved quality of life that comes from a sustainable and livable neighbourhood. That's a pretty darn good ROI on the small increase to my property taxes.

Perhaps you are seeing your neighbourhood declining and wondering why you have to pay more and more tax. That's likely because you subscribe to that moronic "less tax, more service" logic that doesn't get the link between investment and growth.
