A tremendous neighbourhood and heritage opportunity has presented itself to our Ward 21 community and residents are invited to participate in this project.
We have been undertaking a survey of all of the unnamed laneways in Ward 21 and would like to present the community with the opportunity to name these laneways. The Emergency Services Department are supportive of City Lanes having names as this makes it easier for emergency responders. The City’s Mapping Service staff are also supportive of naming our laneways.
We have identified almost 100 laneways in Ward 21 that can be renamed. We have categorized the laneways as follows:
a) South of St. Clair Ave West (48 Laneways)
b) North of St. Clair Ave West to Cedarvale Ravine (32 Laneways)
c) Cedarvale and Forest Hill (17 Laneways) Read more
During March Break, March 10 -16, the City of Toronto is offering low cost or free family activities at its recreation centres, parks facilities and museums. From camps to skiing and snowboarding, skating, swimming, camps and activities at museums and more.
Gathering with others in public spaces are often where connections are made and strengthened. Around the city, this is particularly true for youth. After school hours, and when the school year ends, it is so crucial for them to have some place constructive to go and for parents to have an affordable option for recreation programs. In this year’s city budget, Council expanded the number of community centres where recreation programs are free, and is also investing in a number of new youth drop in centres. In the next term of Council, so much work will have to be done to ensure that Torontonians have access.
