I don't think you're missing anything. Part of the problem is that this project appears to have gone through an initial "informal" or "pre-consultation" process and then to have been sped through the "formal" process. This was especially the case because, as you rightly mention, rezoning wasn't necessary. In that case, as I understand it, the Planning Act does not require notification. This doesn't mean, however, that the City or our councillor couldn't have notified us anyway, and that's been an issue for many in our neighbourhood (some still don't know about the development).

The Planning Act doesn't stop the City from doing more/something to notify residents when there will be a significant change within a few metres of the neighbourhood.
