Does your organization want to hold a picnic
or social gathering in a City of Toronto Park?
If your group, of more than 25 people, is planning an event in a City park, you will need to contact the City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation Permit Call Centre to obtain a permit for your event. This also applies to a gathering that requires a designated “picnic” site, such as a picnic shelter. Click here for more info http://karygiannis.net/wp/2016/05/13/picnics-social-gatherings/

Please order your ‘Slow Down Signs’

Cutting of Grass
With summer just around the corner please ensure that you cut your grass. If grass grows over 8 inches City staff may perform the necessary work to bring the property into compliance.

Keeping our Neighbourhood Safe with “Traffic Calming”
Heathwood residents (Steeles, Kennedy, Birchmount, McNicoll)
We have received many requests in your subdivision for “Traffic Calming” devices. Keeping our city streets safe for everyone is an important responsibility for me and my staff. Using measures to “calm” the traffic is one way to help do this effectively Click here to have your say: http://karygiannis.net/wp/local-engagement-2/

A Traffic Light at Mountcastle and Steeles?
There have been a number of accidents at Steeles Avenue and Mountcastle Gate as people make left-hand turns (westbound) onto Steeles Avenue. Recently, area residents contacted my office and requested a traffic light at the intersection saying it would help stop accidents and inevitably save lives. Have your say click here
