A Facebook page has been started regarding the issue of Air Quality in south Etobicoke, including some industrial emissions which may be affecting the local community. Follow and join the discussion.
The residents of Mississauga and Etobicoke are invited to a public meeting of the proposed Lakeview Waterfront Connection, redevelopment of the lakefront between Marie Curtis Park and the former OPG Lakeview power plant lands.
The CVC and Peel Region are hosting this meeting, which will start with an Open House at 4:30; there will be a presentation at 7:00, followed by smaller break-out group sessions at 7:45.
For complete information on the project, visit the official CVC website. This web page has details of past meetings, relevant material downloads, etc and will be kept up-to-date about the project. You can also sign up for the newsletter if you wish.
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.
