As you know I have been working with the community and City staff to develop a streetscape improvement plan that can be incorporated into the TTC track reconstruction scheduled for 2009.
For the residents and BIA members who have been involved in this process to date you are aware that this is a complicated and exciting undertaking.
Attached is the Notice of Study, which will be posted in the Liberty Village and NOW Magazine next week April24/25 and then again May 1/2, 2008. A ‘schedule B’ EA process requires three public notice postings and one community consultation meeting. Please be advised that the City’s Transportation Department will aim to host the public consultation in June or July. I will be posting the exact date on my website as soon as it becomes available.
Please find attached the community consultation notices for the above noted properties, as part of the Parkdale Pilot Project. In attendance will be the owner of both properties. The meeting will be held on:
Open House ()
Parkdale Public Library, Auditorium
This will give you an opportunity to ask questions and provide any comments or feedback on these applications. I have also included a link (below) which gives some detailed history of the Parkdale Pilot Project should you wish to know more.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
