Berry Road Food Co-op Update [JULY UPDATE]

Posted in Ward 5

 

 

A message from the Berry Road Food Co-op:

Berry Road Food Co-op is moving closer to opening week by week! We have secured our space, and almost $1 million dollars in multi-year support. Our Purchasing and HR Committees have been busy working on the policies and procedures we need to open, and our business plans are all in place.

 

We are still seeking the last bit of funding to enable us to purchase store shelves and initial stock, as well as to make sure we have the resources to pay our initial staff once we open! Our community partners are working hard to connect us to potential institutional donors, but any community member can help out by spreading the word about our Founders’ Credit program! We are just 750 Founders’ Credit purchases away from being good to go!

 

Lest anyone have any concerns, our current position is stable, and there are currently no risks or barriers to our opening when we have the resources needed. BRFC will open eventually, no matter what. But your support will help it happen sooner!

Why You Need to Read the “Good Neighbour Guide”

Posted in Construction Notices, Development

 

 

Simply put, it’s a great go-to guide to understand your duty and role as: a resident being affected by residential development,
a contractor working on residential development or even a Ratepayer/Community group participant who assists your neighbourhood with applications.

This guide should be read through before filing complaints so that you are aware of the processes involved and can ask the right questions or file accurate complaints.

Although our office cannot interpret the guide, we surely can assist with your questions or else get City staff to respond accurately.

Six Points Park Dust & Silt Fence

Posted in Parks, Ward 5

 

 

Our office had requested an immediate solution here to protect families using the Six Points park from neighbouring construction since the first complaint came through.

Heavy winds the past few weeks sent construction dust to the nearby Six Points Park where the silt fencing was not yet erected. Going forward the Six Points team vows to control the dust more efficiently and also has erected the silt fence. 

As always, we are here to help with any concerns. Any and all concerns are read through and taken seriously so please don’t hesitate to contact us! councillor_diciano@toronto.ca

Request for Left Turn Prohibition During Peak Hours onto Chauncey Ave. from Islington Ave.

Posted in Road Work, Ward 5
 

 
Our office received a request for a left turn prohibition onto Chauncey Avenue from Islington Avenue during peak hours. We inquired with Transportation who advises:

This prohibition would apply to all motorists and affect all residents and businesses in the community.  Also, it could displace traffic onto adjacent streets (e.g. Bering Avenue). As a result, community support would be required.

So then, if you will be directly affected by a left turn prohibition here please let us know how it may affect you. Contact us.
