City prepared to expropriate land along Wharncliffe, but staff hope they won’t have to

London’s Corporate Service Committee reaffirmed its commitment a project that would see the widening of Wharncliffe Road South, near Horton Street, by clearing the way for an expropriation with a vote on Tuesday night.

But that doesn’t mean expropriation is the only way forward. In fact, city staff members say they remain committed to a negotiated settlement, admitting the expropriation process could mean project delays.

The city is targeting 12 properties along Wharncliffe. There are five full buyouts, six partial acquisitions, and one easement.
