Parks Permits Online Survey

Posted on March 27, 2014

The City of Toronto is currently reviewing aspects of the park permit process.

Parks, Forestry and Recreation is currently conducting an online survey on the park permit process in response to the January 16, 2014, Parks and Environment Committee request for review of permitting procedures to identify opportunities to streamline the issuance of park permits, item PE25.3.

 
This survey has questions on how you use parks for your events and certain activities, and how we could improve the permitting process. The survey is not intended for sportsfield, commerical or wedding park permit types.
In the hopes of ensuring a city-wide perspective on this issue, please complete this online survey to provide your feedback.

The survey is available at http://cityoftoronto.fluidsurveys.com/s/permits/ and it will be online until April 11, 2014.

100in1Day | Transforming Toronto on June 7, 2014

Posted on March 27, 2014

On Saturday, June 7th, 2014, 100 in 1 Day is coming to Toronto, and we invite you to participate! Co-presented by Evergreen and United Way Toronto, this free citizen-driven festival invites individuals, communities and/or organizations to create acts of urban change (or interventions).

These interventions have the potential to raise awareness of urban and social issues, inspire ideas, and motivate leaders to consider new approaches to old problems. Examples include:

  • · Painting a mural in a vacant lot
  • · Taking part in a pop-up soccer game
  • · Creating a community garden

To help citizens and organizations bring their intervention to life, we are hosting free workshops every Tuesday evening across the city. When you register your event with Evergreen, we’ll also include it on an interactive map and give you access to many ‘crowd sourcing’ opportunities.

Your next steps:

1. Register for a free workshop

2. Register your intervention

3. Follow on Twitter @100in1DayTO

StART Support Mural Program

Posted on March 27, 2014

The City of Toronto has launched a new program to help property owners who are victims of graffiti vandalism. The StART Support Mural Program will provide materials for the creation of art murals and graffiti art on walls visible from city streets that have a history of repeated graffiti vandalism.

The City will provide exterior paint in a full colour spectrum, application materials like brushes, rollers and paint trays and artistic quality spray paint, available in a variety of colours.

Property owners must hire an artist independently and pay for any other costs related to the project, like equipment rentals or permits, if they are required. The StreetARToronto Artist Directory www.toronto.ca/streetart may be a helpful tool to find an artist.

More information about StART Support, including the preliminary application form and eligibility criteria, is available at: www.toronto.ca/startsupport.
