Greenwin Inc is appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board to overturn a decision by Hamilton’s Committee of Adjustment that their application to remove all but ten family units from the apartment buildings at 192 Hughson Street North and 181 John Street North was not minor.

The Committee of Adjustment voted to not approve the conversions, citing that the Committee does not have the power to amended site specific zoning amendments. (Full Video of the meeting)

Greenwin faced much community opposition to the plan to remove 40% of the family apartment unit stock from Hamilton’s Downtown and to convert the units into more profitable single bedroom units.

No hearing date as yet been set by the OMB.
