Dear Community
Representatives:

York
Region is poised?to approve?an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) which
would greatly increase growth, traffic,?congestion and taxes in

increasing Markham's population by 50%(151,000 people) over the next 22
years;
?
2.-
sprawling onto 730 hectares (7 square kilometres) of prime farmland and
greenspace in?Markham, destroying Markham's
countryside.
?
Many?Markham Councillors are prepared to fight

in?Markham but they need your support.
?
Please
join us at the Markham Civic Centre (Council
Chambers) on Monday November 9th at 7 pm to?discuss your

countryside;

2009?meeting is important for the future of Markham.?
