City of Toronto invites residents to consultations on noise bylaw review

The City of Toronto is inviting residents to public consultation sessions on the noise bylaw review. The review aims to introduce updates that reflect Toronto’s growth and vibrancy, while enhancing noise standards that protect residents.

At the public consultation sessions, staff will present and seek feedback on developing updates to the bylaw. Feedback will be used to recommend updates to the bylaw in a report going to Council in spring 2019.

There will be five public consultation sessions, each focusing on a particular area of the bylaw.

Community Survey

Open invitation to members of the community.

If you live or work within the geographic boundaries of 11 Division, as defined and served by the Toronto Police Service, I am requesting your assistance to complete a brief crime, disorder and public safety survey.

Your opinion is important to help us to better provide the policing services that you need.

The geographic boundaries of 11 Division are:
– (To the North) St. Clair Avenue West
– (To the South) Toronto shoreline
– (To the West) Humber River
– (To the East) Dufferin Street south to Queen St., West to Roncesvalles; South from Roncesvalles to the shoreline

It is a Goal for 11 Division and the Toronto Police Service to:

“Improve the quality of life within the community by reducing crime, disorder and enhancing public safety”.

The survey is designed to identify the crime, disorder and public safety issues that should be given special attention to improve the quality of life for the community that is served by members of 11 Division.

The issues listed on the survey are representative of typical crime, disorder and public safety problems experienced in many communities across the city. These issues experienced by themselves or collectively can have a negative impact on the quality of life in the community.

For your convenience, the survey will be available online until February 10, 2019.
