Queen Street East Sidewalk Construction Notice

Sidewalk repairs have begun on Queen Street East.

Some store owners felt that the City’s notices which were distributed a few weeks ago were not sufficient. I have created a more informative notice and will be delivering them to business on Queen Street East this week.
Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions.

Thank you,
MM

    What Notices ? No one, including the City sent out Notices to the Residents. Did we even need new sidewalks ?

      Hi Connor,

      A notice was sent out to business owners along Queen Street East.
      Only the sidewalks that have been damaged because of utility cuts are being replaced.

      Thank you,

        It seems crazy that this work is being undertaken at the time of year the Queen Street businesses rely upon for their survival. What is wrong with April or October. As a resident this work came as a total surprise to me and everyone that I have spoken to.

          Hi Chris,

          Councillor McMahon worked to ensure that the sidewalk reconstruction would be as fast and as minimally intrusive as possible. For instance, the Councillor asked that the construction vehicles be removed from the street during weekends, and that blocking of the streetcar lane be minimized. Furthermore, Councillor McMahon worked with the BIA to create this more informative notice which was delivered to every business on Queen Street to inform them of the work and what to expect.

          Thank you very much,

    The construction at the corner of Queen and Rainsford has been completed since the Spring – at least I haven’t noticed any new construction going on there – but the fence continues to obstruct the sidewalk and the sidewalk is still badly damaged. When we called the developer to complain we were told that they had paid the city 4 years ago for the sidewalk repair and that the fence can’t come down until the sidewalk is repaired. Why has this not been done yet and why wasn’t it done at the same time as the other sidewalk replacement on Queen that was in much better shape than this bit of sidewalk?
