I am holding a public meeting on the issue of the large sound walls, which Metrolinx has determined will be installed next to the West Toronto Railpath in Ward 18.
Our community should be well-informed and able to exert positive influence on Metrolinx decisions that affect us. For these reasons I ask you to join me and members of our community for a presentation and discussion on Thursday, February 7th, 6:30PM at St. Josaphat Ukrainian Cathedral (143 Franklin Ave).
Please review the attached flyer and contact my office if you have any questions or concerns.
I look forward to a strong community turnout for this meeting.

Community groups to express concern over air rail link barrier walls at weekend meeting
Bloor West Villager by Rahul Gupta
A west-end group concerned about a series of noise barrier walls planned by Metrolinx will hold a summit to discuss the issue this weekend.
Kevin Putnam of the Junction Triangle Rail Committee (JTRC) said his group has invited other community groups for a frank exchange on the controversial walls, which Metrolinx wants erected along the Georgetown South rail corridor.
From Ward 18 Councillor Ana Bailao's post to the Carlton Park People's Auxiliary facebook page:
In an effort to build our local park infrastructure, I am ensuring that major upgrades will happen in the summer of 2013 in Carlton Park.
This is an invitation to participate in the design review process on Monday, December 3rd, 7:45PM at St. Sebastien Catholic School (717 Brock Ave), Classroom 116.
You may be already be aware that a public meeting was held with residents in Fall 2011 to ask for a wish list. Taking our budget for such improvements into account, I then selected several items from the resident wish-list and brought the proposals back to the community for approval in Spring 2012. Once this was received, Parks staff generated drawings and this public meeting is the next step in the process.
I was able to allocate more than $160,000 of Section 42 (park levy) funding to these upgrades, as a result of money raised from nearby development projects. I am pleased that Parks capital staff have also decided to put in additional funding. Our community will soon benefit from:
- Removal of the baseball diamond and possible conversion to junior soccer field
- Asphalt path, seat walls, fencing
- New drinking fountain with dog bowl
You can look forward to seeing visual representations of these proposed changes at this upcoming meeting and I look forward to your participation in the design selection process as we move closer to implementation in the summer of 2013.

Starting up the Ward 18 group again!
Hello Ward 18 cyclists (and anyone interested in Ward 18 cycling)!
There's a lot going on in the ward and a lot of opportunity and need for cyclists to have a say. If you're interested in becoming involved with advocacy and outreach efforts within the ward, please come out to an introductory meeting next Wednesday.
We'll discuss bike lanes, bike parking, BIXI, and some bike events coming up throughout next year. We're also looking to name one or two people to take on the "Ward Captain" leadership position from Bruce Ward, who has moved to Ward 14.
WHAT: Introductory meeting for Ward 18 cyclists
WHEN: Wednesday, November 28 at 6:00pm
WHERE: Arte Gelato (946 Bloor St W) -- technically a block outside Ward 18, but we couldn't resist the gelato
RSVP to email@example.com so that we have an idea of numbers.
Thanks! See you there.
