Community Consultation Meeting on Expanding On-street Permit Parking in Ward 4 – June 17, 2019

Posted on June 4, 2019

In May 2017, Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) requested that the Director of Transportation Services provide information on the potential for policy changes to allow for the expansion of the Residential On-street Permit Parking Program to all local streets. Community consultation on this potential change took place in Toronto and East York in April and May 2018.

In December 2018, with ward boundary changes to all wards in the City of Toronto, Ward 4 welcomed a new area – the former Ward 13 – that was not included in the community consultation.

With that in mind, I would like to invite you to a community consultation meeting to discuss the expansion of on-street permit parking in Ward 4.

Join City staff to learn about the City wide Permit Parking Program. Staff will be available to answer any questions or concerns about on-street permit parking.

Ward 4 Permit Parking Community Consultation

When: June 17, 2019 from 7pm-8:30pm

Where: St. Pius X Catholic School (71 Jane Street)

Did you know?

  • City of Toronto local streets have a 3 hour parking limit (day and night) unless there is a sign indicating otherwise.
  • Vehicles displaying a valid on-street parking permit can park overnight without violating the parking bylaw.
  • Residents can apply for on-street parking permits using their City of Toronto home address.

Bill 108 – The OMB is Back! Make Your Voices Heard!

Posted on May 23, 2019

Friends,

Earlier this month the Government of Ontario announced changes to planning law in Ontario under Bill 108 which affects 13 different pieces of legislation and reinstates the old Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), putting more power in the hands of developers and their lobbyists. We cannot allow an unaccountable and unelected body to determine local planning decisions. Your voice is critical in taking a stand against Premier Ford and these unwanted changes.

Read the Chief Planner’s report and presentation to City Council on the proposed Bill 108.

On Monday, May 27, 2019 at 7pm, join myself and Councillors Kristyn Wong-Tam, Josh Matlow, Paula Fletcher, Mike Layton, Joe Cressy, Ana Bailão and Brad Bradford, along with Toronto’s Chief Planner Gregg Lintern, to learn about how Bill 108 will impact your community and how you can have your say before it is too late. This meeting is free and open to all.

When: Monday, May 27, 2019 at 7pm
Where: Council Chambers, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West
