Good news.  At last Thursday's MarketStreet Advisory Committee, the committee decided on an 11-1 vote to request National Development to submit a specific proposal, rather than have the committee develop a proposal.    The motion, by Anne Mitchell, was:

I move that the MSAC, before spending any further time and resources on evaluating a general theater concept for MarketStreet as suggested by National Development,

  • request National Development to provide a specific theater proposal (which shall include the actual proposed language to amend the zoning by-law) for this Committee’s review and evaluation, and
  • after receiving and reviewing the specific theater proposal, that this Committee decide on the process for (a) reviewing the specific theater proposal from National Development, (b) conducting discovery and fact-finding on all of the relevant issues, and (c) agreeing on an advisement/recommendation on the theater proposal.

Members and the public described many issues that they believe National should answer.   The issues included:

  1. Traffic
  2. Impact of Building 1350
  3. Location of future of garage
  4. Financial viability of Cineplex developer
  5. Is the theatre a pure lease or will ND be participating in profitability of the cineplex?


More details will be provided after minutes are approved.

The next steps are up to National Development.
