Monsignor Fraser Greening Project- Public Meeting/Open House

Date: Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Time: 6:30 – 8:00pm

Location: Monsignor Fraser College, Annex Campus (Gymnasium) at 700 Markham St.

The meeting will be jointly facilitated by City staff, Councillor Cressy, and TCDSB Trustee Jo-Ann Davis.

Hey – Seaton Village (and beyond)!

On behalf of Joe Cressy Councillor (an advocate for increased and enhanced green spaces throughout Ward 20) you are all invited to a public open house to discuss improving the Monsignor Fraser parking lot to facilitate expanded student programming and additional community green space for Seaton Village.

From Councillor Cressy: Over the past number of months, I have been working closely with the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), Trustee Jo-Ann Davis, Parks, Forestry & Recreation staff, and the Seaton Village Residents’ Association (SVRA) to revitalize this underutilized space into a brand new community green space. Last year the TCDSB hosted a meeting to discuss initial design concepts and preliminary budget estimates with the SVRA and local residents. There was a lot of excitement for the project and for more green space within the community. However, the proposed budget went far beyond what the TCDSB had available for implementation.

I am happy to report that I have secured City funding to implement the greening vision, and we have partnered with the TCDSB to make the project happen! As a condition of the use of city funds the TCDSB will be agreeing to a long-term lease of the space to the City, creating a new public space open to the community at large.

Hope to see you there!

From the SVRA: Thanks to Councillor Cressy and the Ward 20 staff + Monsignor Fraser School and Trustee Davis for their commitment and all their efforts to realize this project.
