Councillor McMahon introduced a motion to investigate ways to enhance private snow clearing in Toronto.
Every winter we rely on our neighbours to clear snow and ice from sidewalks to ensure the streets are safe for pedestrians. Unfortunately, some homeowners are negligent in clearing their sidewalks leaving the streets unsafe for everyone. Councillor McMahon has asked the Transportation Division to investigate alternate methods of enforcement and education to ensure more of our sidewalks are cleared and safe next winter.
The City of Toronto, Councillor McMahon and the BIA have been working to refine the designs approved by the working group last summer for the entranceway to Kew Gardens Park.
Following three community meetings and a survey organized by the ‘Friends of Wildwood Park’, a preferred concept for the redesign of the park has been developed. Scott Torrance Landscape Architects have developed this preferred concept plan. The park will have new play structures for a wider range of children, a new shade structure and mulched play surface.
To celebrate and animate our neighbourhood during the WinterStations art event, the Design Exchange is hosting workshops at 1934 Queen St. E. on feb 28th and Mar. 7th from 1-4pm.
Below is the short-list of top ideas submitted by groups at the Queen Street Revival. Choose the idea that captures your imagination and help to make it a reality. As always, if you require any assistance from the city please contact my office anytime.
