Parkdale Community Food Bank Received a Donation

Posted on October 9, 2015

In mid-July Parkdale Community Food Bank’s cooler fridge broke down and was deemed unrepairable. This was a real hit as a new one of this style retails for about $5000.00.

The donation was given to the Food Bank.

Liberty New Street Study Update

Posted on October 9, 2015

Study area: Strachan Avenue to Dufferin Street on the north side of the GO Transit Lakeshore West rail corridor

Dear residents and stakeholders in and around Liberty Village,

 

The City of Toronto would like to provide you with an update on the Liberty New Street Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study.

 

Background

The City of Toronto is studying the possibility of constructing a new east-west local road along the south end of Liberty Village, from Strachan Avenue to Dufferin Street, on the north side of the GO Transit Lakeshore West rail corridor. The new street would improve circulation for all modes of travel and support community development.

 

 

The study began in 2011 and has included multiple stages of public and stakeholder consultation.  The City aims to complete this study by the end of 2015.  If endorsed by Council, potential implementation could follow a phased approach.  Currently there is no schedule for construction.

 

Further background information and materials from the completed public consultation process are available on the project web page: toronto.ca/involved/projects/libertynewst

Preferred Street Design

Similar to what has been presented to the public during the EA study, the recommend design is for a new two-lane local road with adjacent multi-use path. The design would include the following:

  • Two-way connections at all intersecting north-south streets, except for Strachan Avenue, which would be restricted to southbound only travel (right-in, right-out)
  • Two traffic lanes (one in each direction)
  • No on street parking
  • A sidewalk on the north side of the road
  • A two-way multi-use path for cyclists and pedestrians on the south side of the road
  • Landscaping and civic improvements, including south-facing lookouts, where possible

Please share this study update information with others whom you think would be interested.

Open Dialogue on Vulnerability | Exploring Legal Capacity – October 16, 2015

Posted on October 9, 2015

 

 

The Specialized Program for Interdivisional Enhanced Response to Vulnerability Proof of Concept Program is working with City Divisions and Partnership Agencies to develop “The Open Dialogue on Vulnerability in Toronto” series to create opportunities for dialogue on a number of topics articulated by the City and its partners.  The series will increase awareness about situations impacting vulnerable Torontonians, the programs and services available, build networks across the service system and create opportunities for operation and systemic level innovation.

This session aims to increase the knowledge of service providers about capacity assessments and processes, governing legislation, and opportunities for reform.  It will include a Q&A period (bring questions!) for discussion of practical strategies for “trouble-shooting” when deal with situations of complex or unresolved risk.
