Excessive Development Will Negatively Impact our Neighbourhood
In 2021, AWRA initiated an alliance with two other resident associations (WOSTRI and Landmark of Thornhill Community) over our shared concern about how current developments in the John & Bayview area will impact the future livability of our community.
