The Jane’s Walk Festival is happening on May 5th, 6th, & 7th!
If you have a fun, informative, unusual way of looking at your neighbourhood, then Jane’s Walk wants you to host a walking conversation in your community!
Jane’s Walk is a global movement of free, community-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to explore their cities and connect with neighbours. In 2016, over 7,000 people attended 226 walks in 37 GTA Wards. Organizing a Jane’s Walk is easy. It simply involves planning a route, thinking through the stories, places, people and ideas you want to hear and talk about, and then posting it online at janeswalk.org/toronto. Learn more at www.janeswalk.org.
In December 2015, Toronto City Council directed staff to develop an implementation plan for a stormwater charge (SWC) as a cost recovery model to fund the costs of Toronto’s stormwater management program, which is currently funded entirely from the water rate. You can access that Council agenda item, including the staff report, “Funding Options for Paying for Toronto Water’s Stormwater Management Capital Program”, here: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2015.EX10.26
In October 2016, City staff engaged interested stakeholders on the refined geographic analysis required for the stormwater charge, various rate options, potential impacts on different types of water customers, and a preliminary incentive program.
Based on your feedback and other considerations, staff have further refined the stormwater charge proposal, and we would again like to seek your valuable feedback. We invite you to attend the following stakeholder consultation meeting on the proposed stormwater charge:
Date: Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Location: Toronto City Hall
100 Queen Street West
Committee Room 4, 2nd floor
I also encourage you to make a written submission on this matter. Please note that in order to be considered during the preparation of the final report for May 2017, your written submission must be provided to Kurtis Elton (Metro Hall, 18th floor, 55 John St, Toronto ON M5V 3C6 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than April 21, 2017.
