We'll need to file this one in the 'sad but funny' file at RTH - Toronto City Council voted on Tuesday to name their newest North York street, 'OMB Folly'.
This after the OMB overruled city council and planning staff's recommendations to decline an out-of-bounds townhouse application.
"Councillor John Filion, who has frequently knocked heads with developers, said he was flabbergasted the OMB would allow rezoning for townhouses on a site that lies outside the designated North York Centre development area," reported the Star.
"This one really stands out as the most ludicrous decision that I know of," Filion said. "It takes the cake. I could cite a lot of terrible OMB decisions, but it's the one that's just obviously absurd and ridiculous."
The developer, Stephen Maizels of the Hallstone Group, wasn't too happy either: "Are they nuts?" he said. "Where is the adulthood? When do they grow up?"
Perhaps when the OMB starts being accountable for it's frequently curious actions?
