Chester Le Community Mural – Saturday, September 30th, 2017

 

Chester Le Community Mural Unveiling on Saturday, September 30th

 

I proudly invite residents to join members of the Chester Le community and the Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA) to celebrate the unveiling of the Chester Le Community Mural.

 

The mural will be displayed on the wall along Victoria Park Avenue outside the Chester Le townhouses. It is an artistic collaboration by the community of Chester Le to showcase the beauty and resilience of the residents after a year of tragic incidents including fatalities. This community project will bring local youth, residents and volunteers together to undertake an initiative to celebrate their neighbourhood.

Please save the date of Saturday, September 30th from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM for a day of celebration including a BBQ, activities and a community walk!

 

In mid-August, I was honoured to join Ms. Lee Soda, Executive Director of the Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA), and youth members of the Chester Le community to provide an update on the Chester Le Community Mural.

The Chester Le Community Mural has been provided funding through the StreetARToronto (StART) partnership program which is initiated through the City of Toronto Community Partnership Investment Program. The Chester Le Community Mural is one of many projects that respond to the needs and local conditions of diverse communities in the City.

Pilot Project Study Rooming Houses Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

The City is launching a pilot study that proposes a zoning approach to Multi-Tenant Homes (Rooming Houses) and licensing requirements. Ward 39 is included as a pilot study area. I am opposed to our ward being included and I strongly believe Rooming Houses should not be studied at all. Rooming Houses negatively impact the character of our neighbourhoods and the effectiveness of first responders to respond to calls. Rooming Houses present a danger to the tenants living in those properties. Tenants, especially new Canadians and low-income families, must be protected from Rooming House landlords who have no regard for safety standards including violations of the fire code.

 

I encourage residents of Ward 39 to attend the City’s public meeting on this issue at the following date and time:
