Monarch is planning to add 11 single family homes on the 5th hole of the golf course located south of the tee boxes. Monarch did not originally plan to build at this location, and a commitment was made to homeowners in the vicinity that this green space would not be developed.
Stonebridge residents are strongly opposed to this infill development application for a variety of reasons including:
- Rezoning of Previously Reserved Green Space and Substantial Tree Clearing
- Traffic Safety Issues Resulting from Increased Residential and Commercial Construction Traffic (and speeding) at OC Transpo and School Bus Stops
- Inconsistency with the Surrounding Community from Higher Lot Density, No Overflow Parking, No Sidewalk, and Insufficient Distance Between Homes on the Golf Course
- Monarch’s Conflict of Interest Requiring Access for Commercial Activity at its Maintenance Facility Through the New Proposed Private Street (only 8.5m wide)
- Residents’ Loss of Privacy and Decrease in Property Values
- Design Changes to Hole #5 of the Golf Course
- Setting a Precedent for Future Infill Development in the Stonebridge Community
