Posted on October 21, 2013

To our Sistema Friends:

As you know by now, Sistema Toronto is in the Aviva Community Fund competition.  The first-round semi-finalists have been announced, and though we put up a good showing, we just didn’t get enough votes to move on.

The good news?  We’re in the second qualifying round, and voting starts this coming Monday, October 21.  That means we get another shot at $150,000.  If you’re already registered, then you can start clicking for us.  If you’re not registered, now’s your chance to head over to our Sistema Toronto page and sign up.  And remember, you get 15 votes for this second round – if you vote for Sistema Toronto each day until November 4, every single one of your votes will go to us.

We wouldn’t have done nearly so well in the first round if you hadn’t been voting for us every day, and for that we sincerely thank you.  We hope you’ll find the time to vote for us throughout the second round, and that you’ll pass along this e-mail to everyone you know to encourage them to vote too.

Your continued support means a great deal to us.  With your help, our children will continue to strive for excellence and reach their full potential.

West Roncesvalles Planning Meeting

Posted on October 21, 2013

PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS

Roncesvalles Avenue is a great street with much character, in part due to the different uses on the west and east side of the street.

With individual applications for change-of-use coming forward, City of Toronto Planning staff initiated a conversation with community members about the need to protect the character of the west side of Roncesvalles Avenue.

Based on comments from the community, City Planning has recommended a set of performance standards in assessing small-scale commercial uses on the west side of Roncesvalles Avenue.

City Planning Staff are now holding a final meeting to consult on these performance standards.

Monday, October 28th, 7-9 PM at St. Cashmir Parish Hall, 156 Roncesvalles Ave.

Dufferin Street bridge is now open to pedestrians and cyclists

Posted on October 21, 2013

This is an update to Friday’s Post.

We have received notice that the Dufferin Street bridge is now open to pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge is still closed to vehicular traffic.

The emergency repairs contractor removed the panels of the temporary fencing on the Dufferin Street bridge over the weekend. The remaining panels were removed this morning at 8:00 am. There is now a 6 m opening on each side of the bridge. The water barricades still remain to help prevent vehicular traffic from crossing the bridge.
