    TransitEnvironment & SustainabilityHeritage
    Event Date and Time: 
    Tuesday, April 9, 2013 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm
    After 7 years of planning and consultation, the Secondary Plan for the Mimico-by-the-Lake Project 20/20 will go in front of Etobicoke York Community Council on Tuesday April 9, 2013. This may be last opportunity for the public to comment on this Secondary Plan. 
     There is a fair amount of Mimico 20/20 background via the Mimico Lakeshore Network and CCFEW websites, going back to 2006; and the official Mimico 20/20 page on the City of Toronto website has much information on the plan, including links to the consultant reports about infrastructure, heritage, transportation, energy, etc.
     You can view the Urban Strategies final report (PDF,8-MB) via the City's website. 
     The public meeting will be held at Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall (at Burnhamthorpe Rd), at 7:00pm in the Council Chamber. 
     Here is the official Toronto notice of public meeting (PDF), courtesy CCFEW.

  • Etobicoke Creek -Sherway Trail- IMPORTANT Meeting

    CyclingEnvironment & Sustainability
    Event Date and Time: 
    Thursday, January 24, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

    The proposed Sherway Trail -along south Etobicoke Creek, from QEW to Sherway Drive- is only 700m long, but it is an important link in the Etobicoke Creek Trail  network, as it will help connect the Waterfront with neighbourhoods north of the QEW. 

    This project has been in the works for several years, but has been held up by government red tape. Now, the funding for the project, which was set aside in 2006, may be "re-allocated" to fund other park projects. 

    The Planning Dept of the City of Toronto is holding a public consultation on this issue on Thursday, January 24 (6:00) at Etobicoke Council chambers (399 The West Mall, at Burnhamthorpe). 

    It is important that the community shows its support for the Sherway Trail project, as it facilitates pedestrian and cycling travel between the waterfront and neighbourhoods and other trails in central Etobicoke and Mississauga. It is a key link in the trail network. 

    Please attend the meeting on Thursday and speak with the Planning staff and other local residents.
