We heard that cyclists exiting Sorauren to turn right onto Dundas were being pinched by motor vehicles so we have added green marking at this intersection. The purpose of this marking is to encourage motorists to make a wider right hand turn creating more room for cyclists.dundas-sorauren-green-marking
As Toronto grows and changes, the needs of residents change. Parks, Forestry and Recreation wants your opinion, ideas and thoughts about how to improve and better plan for parks and recreation facilities, permits and sport programs. From Nov. 5 to 30, staff will be consulting about these subjects across the city. Visit www.toronto.ca/haveyoursay for more information about when and where.pfr-consultation-schedule
On Monday, November 14th, 2016 at 7:00 PM, the Parks and Environment Subcommittee on Climate Mitigation and Adaptation will meet to consider the TransformTO staff report.
Recognizing that Climate Change is one of the most important issues of our time, the City of Toronto has established TransformTO to produce a framework that will help the city identify a path to sustainability and suggest key starting points to begin towards its goal of greenhouse gas emission reductions of 80% by 2050.
Two documents are being created:
A short-term strategy (2017-2020) outlining the actions that will allow Toronto to meet its target of a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 through policy and programming.
A long-term (2020-2050) approach that will identify how we can reduce emissions by 80% by 2050 while generating a healthier, more prosperous, and equitable city.
As Chair of the Subcommittee, and on behalf of its members, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend and share your comments.
Parks and Environment Subcommittee on Climate Mitigation and Adaptation

I would also ask you to share this invitation broadly with those who may be interested in attending.
At the initial meeting in March 2015, the Subcommittee on Climate Change Mitigation & Adaptation heard over 200 residents who shared their visions and concerns regarding TransformTO’s initiatives. Since then over 2000 Torontonians have participated in the project. The full public engagement report is available at http://bit.ly/2cImhRo.
More information about TransformTO is available at http://www.toronto.ca/transformto.
Thank you for your participation in this important work. I look forward to seeing you on November 14th.
