It's important to note that this meeting is being organized by Ward 18 city councillor Ana Bailao and not Metrolinx. Metrolinx are holding their own meeting on this topic later in the month (February 21).

You can download a PDF copy of this announcement here.

Dear Residents,

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.

Carlton Park upgrades in 2013

From Ward 18 Councillor Ana Bailao's post to the Carlton Park People's Auxiliary facebook page:

Dear Residents,

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.
