Please be advised that the final Local Advisory Committee (LAC) meeting will be held on Wednesday March 18th, 2009. I will be sending out the location as soon as this information becomes available.
Note: The public are welcomed to attend the LAC meetings and observe the LAC discussions. To ensure a focused discussion that will provide an opportunity to review the materials to date and provide opportunities for feedback as we move forward (see page 6 of the Avenue Study terms of reference), we ask that members not appointed to the Local Advisory Committee reserve their comments for the Bloor Dundas ‘Avenue’ Study public meetings, or convey them to Senior Planner Corwin Cambray if you have not yet done so. Corwin can reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 416-397-0244.
You may also want to connect with your area Resident’s Association, Business Improvement Area or community agency (see list of LAC members below) to ask that your comments be included in the LAC discussions.
