The results from the survey on the proposed redevelopment of the Villa Lucia property are in.
First, thank you for taking the time to answer our survey on the proposed Villa Lucia development. From our email distribution list of 850 addresses, we received 365 responses — a terrific 43 percent response rate. This shows we have an engaged community that is concerned about how our neighbourhood develops.
Here’s what we learned.
- 84 percent of respondents are opposed to nine-storey towers (the current design).
- Privacy and property values are concerns for those in proximity to the proposed towers.
- The community is generally not opposed to development, so long as it fits in with the existing Crystal Beach Lakeview environment.

What are the next steps? We have shared these results with Councillor Theresa Kavanagh and will reference the survey during future public consultations on this development. As for the status of the project, we have not received any updates but will keep the community informed.
Finally, we send a big thank-you to the Transportation, Transit, and Infrastructure Committee members for their hard work on this issue and our executive members for making the survey possible.
