The Georgetown South (GTS) Project will provide infrastructure improvements to meet existing GO Transit ridership demand and future growth. It will also accommodate existing and future VIA Rail and CN freight train service as well as the new Air Rail Link between Union Station and Pearson International Airport.
Bloor GO Station Public Meeting
GO Transit is committed to keeping you informed about our construction activities and infrastructure projects. In keeping with The Big Move, Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan, we are planning to update and improve Bloor GO Station, making it a more modern link to safe, comfortable and convenient public transportation by early 2015. The project involves station enhancements, including a new barrier-free pedestrian tunnel and rehabilitation of the existing pedestrian access from Bloor Street. The improved Bloor GO Station will also feature an Air Rail Link stop, providing a seamless connection from Union Station to Pearson International Airport .
You are invited to attend our public information session to learn about the upcoming plans for Bloor GO Station. Representatives from GO Transit, as well as the project’s consultants, will be on hand to answer questions.

Dear Ward 18 Community [please distribute this notice to your group members and any others who may be interested]:
As you are no doubt aware, Ward 18 is going through a great deal of growth and development due to the fact that we live in a very desirable area. Many new developments are currently being proposed and this will have a future impact on Ward 18. While change is coming, we have a tremendous opportunity to manage this change, to guide this process, and to work together for a combined vision of what we want to see for our neighbourhoods.
I strongly believe that at the heart of a successful planning process is the involvement and feedback of local residents. For this reason, I have organized a Ward-wide Planning Townhall, to invite residents to review and comment on the various development applications coming forward. On October 27th from 1:00-4:00PM, please join me, members of City Planning, local developers, community groups and fellow neighbours at St. Helen's School (1196 College Street).
Please review the information presented in the attached flyer and contact my office if you have any questions.
I hope to see you there!

PRE-APPLICATION COMMUNITY MEETING
299 Campbell Avenue
I invite all residents to attend a public meeting to review the proposed plans for the possible redevelopment of 299 Campbell Avenue before an Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Bylaw Amendment application are filed with the City.
The developer intends to propose the construction of a mixed-use commercial and residential building with a podium height of 6 storeys along Dupont Street and Campbell Avenue. The building would step up and back to 8 storeys and further up and back to 18 storeys in the eastern portion of the site. The proposed redevelopment would have a mix of single, one, two and three bedroom units, two levels of retail/commercial and office space along Dupont Street and Campbell Avenue, as well as Live/work units along Campbell Avenue and three levels of underground parking.
This session is an opportunity to come and see what is being proposed and to contribute your ideas to the process before an official application is submitted.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at 6:30pm for a community discussion

Message from Ward 18 Councillor Ana Bailão, with meeting poster attached:
As you are aware, Metrolinx has been active making infrastructure upgrades to the Georgetown Rail Corridor. Among the upgrades are new sound walls which will run along various parts of the corridor and our neighbourhoods.
As there are a number of options for material and design of these sound walls, I have organized a public meeting for community groups to be informed about these options and be involved in this process.
I encourage anyone interested to attend a presentation by Metrolinx staff on April 30th to hear about available options and provide input into the final design.
Date: April 30rd
Start Time: 6:30pm
Location: Shirley St. Public School, Gym
38 Shirley Street, Toronto
