Should the speed limit on Pharmacy Avenue be lowered?
Recently, City of Toronto staff prepared a report which indicated that lower speeds on residential streets will reduce the risk of major injuries to pedestrians and cyclists in the event of a crash. The report also indicated that noise reduction is usually associated with lower speeds. Pharmacy Avenue is a major thoroughfare in our community comprised of small businesses, high rises, residential homes, a church and a school.

Toronto’s Home Energy Loan Program
If you are thinking about renovating your home, you may qualify for a low-interest loan from the City for your home energy improvements. For many people, the high, up-front costs of upgrading insulation, replacing an old furnace, or installing a high efficiency water heater can be a deterrent to taking action.
If you are thinking about renovating your home, you may qualify for a low-interest loan from the City for your home energy improvements. For many people, the high, up-front costs of upgrading insulation, replacing an old furnace, or installing a high efficiency water heater can be a deterrent to taking action. Through The Home Energy Loan Program, or ‘HELP’, the City will provide funding required to complete the improvements. The homeowner repays the City, over time, by installments, on their property tax bill. The loan can be repaid at any time, without penalty. You may qualify if: you own a detached, semi-detached or row house in Toronto; all of the property owners on the title consent to the Program; your property tax and utility payments to the City are in good standing; and, you obtain written consent from your mortgage lender, if applicable. Funding for the City’s Home Energy Loan Program will end in December 2016.

TTC signal and maintenance work on Line 1 this weekend
This weekend, March 5-6, subway signal and maintenance work being undertaken between St George and Lawrence West stations will require that portion of Line 1 to close. Over the course of the weekend, TTC crews will lay 37,000 feet of cable for the TTC’s new Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system, replace 2,700 feet of track, grind 6,000 feet of rail to ensure a smooth journey, and conduct station cleaning and other maintenance work.
Shuttle buses will operate, stopping at subway stations only along the route. However, as Metrolinx is performing additional work at Eglinton West Station, the shuttle bus will stop at the intersection of Eglinton Ave. W. and Bathurst St. rather than at the station. This Metrolinx work will also require the 63/363 Ossington and 109 Ranee buses to divert. Please check ttc.ca for details.
Wheel-Trans buses will be available for customers who require accessible transit. Customers can speak to any staff member at any station to request the service. ttcweendmarch5
