Ward 22 Parks Improvements Update

2014-09-09T23:49:52+00:00

I have been working closely with City of Toronto Parks, Forestry & Recreation staff in 2014 to implement improvements to our parks in Ward 22. Due to a long winter and a slow thaw in the spring, some of the construction work has been delayed. I have heard from a number of you with regards [...]

Taking Action on Reducing Speed Limits on Local Streets to Protect our Families

2014-09-09T23:37:04+00:00

Since being elected in 2010, I've worked continuously with fellow parents, and all residents, to make our neighbourhood streets as safe as possible by responding to community requests for traffic and speed mitigation measures where feasible. I frequently visit residents' homes and streets with City Transportation staff looking for possible solutions to residents' concerns about [...]

Forest Hill Village Urban Design Study

2014-09-09T23:27:10+00:00

Forest Hill Village is a unique retail area in Midtown Toronto. It is one of the few commercial shopping enclaves in the city that is wholly contained within a residential area. Several recent developments and renovations within the Village have been undertaken with little deference to the prevailing streetscape (such as the new LCBO). To allow this inconsistent [...]

Reducing the Cost of Paid-Duty Police Officers

2014-09-09T23:20:28+00:00

As a member of the Council's Audit Committee, I set a process in motion to reduce the number of paid-duty police officers the City needs to hire at construction and work sites.   I, along with many residents, find it frustrating and wrong to see uniformed police officers standing by work sites while other budgets [...]

The Province of Ontario granted the City of Toronto the power to establish a Local Appeal Body (LAB) to hear appeals of Committee of Adjustment decisions on both minor variances and consent applications. The Local Appeal Body would be composed of such persons as the City considers advisable (subject to certain by-laws regarding such things [...]

Improving Development Proposal Public Notices

2017-05-29T19:24:02+00:00

Development Proposal Public Notices (signs) on an application site are often the only information about a new building proposal that Toronto residents will encounter. That's why it's important that these notices are attractive and well-designed, written in language that is informative and easy for the average person to understand while encouraging involvement in the planning [...]

Council Supports My Motion to Address Rail Safety Concerns

2014-09-09T23:14:38+00:00

I'm very pleased to report that Council has unanimously supported my motion that requests the federal government address local residents' concerns regarding the significant increase in hazardous materials travelling by rail through Midtown in recent years. In particular, trains carrying crude oil have increased from 500 carloads in 2009 to an estimated 140,000 in 2013.   [...]

Yonge Eglinton Bus Barns

2014-09-09T23:12:28+00:00

The TTC's bus barns site at the south west corner of Yonge and Eglinton has been left as a derelict eyesore for too long. While the area will now be used as a staging ground for the Eglinton Crosstown construction, there is no excuse for the condition in which the TTC has left it for [...]
