Project Elm Ridge – overhead/underground construction

Toronto Hydro is planning to rebuild the aging underground electrical system in our community. The rebuild includes the replacement of the existing electrical cables and transformers within the City of Toronto’s public property allowance in front of or adjacent to your lot.

The project has already commenced in October 2014 with an approximate completion of December 2014 as weather permits. The project boundaries include Elm Ridge Drive (North), Old Park Road (East), El Ridge Drive (South) and Marlee Avenue (West). Throughout Project Eld Ridge, power interruptions may be necessary to switch from the old to the new electrical system. Toronto Hydro will provide residents with advance notice prior to any planned outages.

Once construction begins, Toronto Hydro’s contractors will take extra care and precautions to help minimize any inconveninences. The portion of the driveway and other areas affected by the work will be restored to pre-construction conditions. Upon project completion, restoration work will be completed as season, weather and schedule permits.

“Slow – Kids at Play” sign

A neighbourhood movement, started by a Leaside resident after the passing of Georgia Walsh, has gained tremendous momentum. This initiative, reminding drivers to take their time and watch for children is springing up on the lawns in our city, each one imprinted with the silhouette of a child’s face. Inside the silhouette there’s an image of an idyllic street and bold white letters with the caution: “Slow down, kids at play.”

The local Wychwood and Hillcrest BIAs are supporting this initiative in our Ward and residents are now able to get a sign by contacting
