Subject: NYCC – Deferral Request

Dear Councillor Parker,

I have not heard back from you following my emails of February 14 and 15, 2013.

During our conversation on February 14, you indicated that you were prepared to support a request by Leaside Unite for a deferral of the February 26 NYCC meeting.

Attached is a draft letter that we propose to send to NYCC, requesting a deferral until the April 9 meeting. This deferral is needed so that we have sufficient time to consider the Staff Report that was just released, consult with the community, speak to the experts we have hired, and potentially meet with the Developer to determine if an amicable resolution may be possible.

I would appreciate hearing back from you as to whether you are prepared to endorse the attached request, and equally importantly, whether you are prepared to lobby other NYCC members to ensure that the deferral is granted.

Given the tight deadline, I must ask for a reply by no later than 5pm on Wednesday, February 20.

Finally, I had hoped to discuss with you Leaside Unite’s initial thoughts with respect to the settlement options you and I discussed on February 14. If you are interested in continuing that discussion, please let me know when you are available to speak.
