As some of you are aware, the kick-off meeting for the above noted Avenue Study was held on Tuesday July 8th, 2008, 630pm at Saint Joan of Arc Gymnasium. A big thank you to those who braved the storm in order to participate in this very important meeting.
I encourage all of you to check out the city’s dedicated website, www.toronto.ca/planning/bloordundas.htm to find detailed background information on the Avenue Study as well as information about the lead consultant, Brook McIlroy http://www.brookmcilroy.com/ Senior Planner lead Corwin Cambray will be posting information shortly after each meeting to keep those of you who are unable to attend updates as we move forward. If you have any questions, please contact Corwin at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to contact my office.
As many of you know by now,
Please be advised that I have been in constant communication with Toronto Water and Parks and have been informed that Public Health as well as the Ministry of the Environment are present along side Toronto Water and Parks personnel. The site has been roped off to prevent public access.
Currently they are conducting soil tests and pumping the standing water to help expedite the clean up process. Toronto Water, Parks and the Ministry are doing everything they can to ensure public safety.
The City’s preliminary analysis suggests that this storm had an extremely unusual intensity of rainfall. In our changed climate unusual is the new normal. Recently the City passed a plan to adapt our systems including the water system to this new climate. To see the adaptation plan please see: http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2008/pe/bgrd/backgroundfile-12951.pdf
I will keep you updated as information becomes available.
This is just a reminder that the community consultation meeting for the above noted property has been scheduled for Thursday July 17th, 630pm at the Lithuanian House, 1573 Bloor Street West.
