StreetPLAY in Seaton Village – starting Friday, June 2, 2017 4:00 – 8:00pm

Please join your community members and Earth Day Canada for the first Seaton Village StreetPLAY event on Markham St (north of Barton Ave) and Follis Ave (from just west of Markham)

Friday, June 2, 2017 from 4:00 – 8:00pm

It’s a simple idea – open up our local neighbourhood streets to children and youth so they can connect with friends and play right outside their front door.

The Toronto StreetPLAY Pilot Project (TSPP) will test regularly scheduled, partial closures for street play on 6 residential blocks between June and November 2017. The purpose of the project is to test a permit program for regularly occurring street closures to support neighbourhood outdoor play. The

The first phase is being rolled out TODAY – June 2

All kids from the neighbourhood are welcome to play on these streets!

Bloor St Bike Lanes Project Update Public Drop in Monday, June 5, 2017

Bloor Street Bike Lanes Shaw Street to Avenue Road Project Update

The Bloor Street Bike Lane Pilot Project was approved by City Council in May 2016. The installation of the separated bike lanes (cycle tracks) on Bloor Street West from Shaw Street (east of Ossington Avenue) to Avenue Road was completed in late August 2016.

The pilot project will allow us to demonstrate and study the impacts and benefits of bike lanes on Bloor Street. Extensive monitoring and evaluation is being carried out and will be reported to Council later this year.

Public Drop-in Event

Join us for our third public event to learn about the technical evaluation completed to date, review summaries of on-going public feedback, and discuss your experience and suggestions for the future of these cycling facilities.

Date & Time: Monday, June 5, 2017, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Location: Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre – Gym 427 Bloor Street West

Local Councillors Mike Layton and Joe Cressy will be in attendance. All information materials presented will be posted online shortly following the event.

From Councillor Cressy

As the 1-year Bloor Street bike lane pilot project continues, join me, Councillor Layton, and City staff on June 5th for a mid-pilot public consultation.

The City has been working hard on the extensive monitoring, evaluation, and consultation program since the project’s installation. Come out on June 5th to learn about the technical evaluation completed to date, review of summaries of ongoing public feedback, and discuss your experience, feedback and suggestions for the future.

You can find more information on the City’s website, or by viewing the meeting flyer here. Earlier this year, the City also released preliminary portions of data (collected 6 weeks after installation) that has been collected on the project. You can find more information here

 

NOTE: Stay tuned for details regarding a June SVRA meeting with City staff to discuss a very helpful set of updates and further information about the Bloor St Bike Lane Project that staff and the Councillor want to ensure is shared with the Seaton Village community.
