Roncesvalles Renewed

Posted on May 19, 2011

Roncesvalles Renewed has begun planting! After two years of construction, new trees were planted on Roncesvalles on Saturday May 14th.

Every new tree on Roncesvalles is being planted in conditions where it will thrive and flourish for generations to come. Together with the existing trees, new trees will form a beautiful shade canopy.

On the west side, where most of the properties are privately owned by individuals or institutions, the City contributed free trees where conditions are suitable and owner willing to accept one.

On the east side, the planting beds are being readied. Planting will take place from May to June 2011.

Roncesvalles Renewed is a group of residents, business owners and community stakeholders

working together to optimize efforts for the planned reconstruction of Roncesvalles Avenue.

For More Trees

If you would like a tree planted in your own front yard or you see a spot that could support a tree, please contact:

Bill Montague of the RMRA Greening Committee at (416) 534-8772

The City of Toronto. Call 311 and ask for a tree from Urban Forestry.

Every tree in our neighbourhood helps green the whole community.

Hydro One Environmental Class Assessment

Posted on May 19, 2011

Hydro One is initiating a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to replace parts of the existing high-voltage electricity infrastructure serving the western Lakeshore area of the City of Toronto, a distance of 5.6 kilometers. In order to ensure that Toronto Hydro customers continue to receive a safe and reliable supply of electricity, Hydro One proposes to replace two of the existing 115 kilovolt (kV) underground transmission cables in their existing location with 230 kV cables.

The cables connect Strachan Transformer Station (TS) located on the CNE grounds at Strachan Avenue and Manitoba Drive, and  Riverside Junction (Jct) located at the Queensway and Windermere Ave. and were originally installed in the late 1950s.  The cables are nearing their end of life and require replacement as identified in Hydro One’s regular asset sustainment program. Pending all the necessary approvals and permits, construction is expected to begin in early 2011 with the new facilities in service by December 2012.

As part of the Class EA process, they will be consulting local residents, businesses and other stakeholders to identify and address any issues related to the project. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held on Wednesday, June 2, 2011 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, 1926 Lake Shore Boulevard West to provide the community with an opportunity to learn more about the project.

At the PIC residents and business owners will have the opportunity to learn more about the project, provide their input, and talk to Hydro One staff about any issues or concerns.
