Dear Brimley Forest Neighbour:
As the seasons change and we leave one of the coldest winters in recent memory behind, the City continues to clean-up from December’s ice storm and prepares for this summer’s street festivals. Locally, I will be hosting two community events this summer and would like to invite you and your family to attend.
My Community Environment Day will take place at Nashdene Yard (70 Nashdene Rd.) on Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. I will also be hosting a Movie Night with CUPE 416 on Friday, June 20 at 8:00 P.M. at the baseball field at St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School (75 Alexmuir Blvd.). I hope to see you there.
My office has received many calls from residents regarding tree branches. The City of Toronto’s ice storm protocol regarding the removal of tree hazards as a result of ice storm damage is no longer in effect. Property owners are required to obtain a permit from the Urban Forestry branch of Parks, Forestry and Recreation before removing or injuring trees. Waste Management Services will continue to collect bundled tree debris less than 3 inches in diameter left at the curb on yard-waste collection days.
I also received many e-mails from residents across the city in support of Open Streets Toronto. This proposed free recreation program would see Bloor St. between Withrow and High Parks and Yonge and Church Streets from Bloor to Queen closed to automobile traffic from 8 A.M. to 1 P.M. This initiative is proposed to take place on four Sundays this summer: July 27, August 3, August 17 and August 31. The purpose of the event is to promote healthy and active lifestyles and social interaction among neighbours.
If my office can be of service or assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
