Meeting notice from Metrolinx:
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
DUNDAS WEST-BLOOR MOBILITY HUB STUDY
Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is helping transform the way the region moves by championing and delivering mobility solutions for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
The Big Move, Metrolinx’s Regional Transportation Plan for the GTHA, imagines a future in which key transit stations become mobility hubs. Mobility hubs consist of major transit stations and the surrounding area. They serve a critical function in the regional transportation system as the origin, destination, or transfer point for a significant portion of trips. They are places of connectivity where different modes of transportation – from walking to riding transit – come together seamlessly and where there is an intensive concentration of working, living, shopping and/or playing.
The Dundas West-Bloor Mobility Hub Study
We are conducting a study on the proposed Dundas West-Bloor Mobility Hub. The study includes the development of a plan to better integrate existing GO Transit and TTC services, as well as provide a design foundation for future major upgrades to GO Transit and TTC service, and a stop on the Union-Pearson Air Rail Link.
The study builds closely on the findings of the Bloor-Dundas Avenue Study prepared by Brook McIlroy and commissioned by the City of Toronto in 2009.
The Open House
You’re invited to attend our open house to find out more about this study.
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Venue: Lithuanian House, 1573 Bloor Street West

Dear Friends and Neighbours,
I am writing to invite the residents of Ward 18 to a public meeting to discuss the 2011 City of Toronto Budget.
It is my intention to use this meeting as an opportunity for local residents to share their thoughts on the city budget, including what local services and programs need to be maintained and/or improved.
As promised last fall to continuously engage local residents on important matters, I am very pleased to host this meeting that will include city staff. If you're unable to attend, there are other ways to make your voice heard and I would encourage you to visit http://www.toronto.ca/city_budget or contact my office directly about other meetings happening throughout the city.
Please come with your thoughts and ideas on how we can make our community a better place to live and work.
Councillor Ana Bailão

From the Junction Triangle Rail Committee:
The Junction Triangle Rail Committee will be holding a planning meeting this Tuesday, November 2 at 7 p.m. at Boo Radley's on Dupont. The committee will be discussing plans for the upcoming year after a successful series of neighbourhood picnics with musical performances, a great all candidates event and a Nuit Blanche exhibit that helped spread news of the Metrolinx diesel plans to thousands of people.

Your neighbourhood is changing!
The Tower Automotive buildings have been demolished. Townhouses and apartments have been constructed. More new development is imminent. Your neighbourhood is changing quickly. And there is no real plan in place.

Residents are welcome to join us to give a commentary on the history and their hopes for the neighbourhood. The site walk should last about 2 or 3 hours.
Hope to see you there.
