2359 Danforth Avenue Development
Back in November, a community consultation was held on the development proposal at 2359 Danforth Avenue, the Morris Auction site. DECA is not taking a position at this time, but we are committed to conveying information as it is available. Councillor McMahon’s report on the meeting is below – send her an email if you would like more information. (We are not forwarding emails to her about this – please send them to her directly)
Save the Woodbine Fire Truck
You don’t think much about first responders until you need them, and believe me that when you need them, you want them there as fast as possible! Please consider signing this petition.
From Councillor Davis:
The 2014 City Budget includes reallocating one pumper truck and crew from Station #224 Woodbine (Woodbine and Holborne Avenue) to a new station in Scarborough. This would leave only one truck in our local station. I am concerned about what impact this will have on response times and safety in our community.
Neighbours have started a petition calling for the City to hire additional staff for the new station and to maintain the current level of fire service in our community.
Please sign the online petition < https://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/maintain-the-current-vehicles-and-crew-at-fire-station-224-woodbine > and ask your neighbours to sign as well.
If you would like to take further action on this, write to Clerk@Toronto.ca and ask for your email to be sent to all Councillors, or contact Councillor Davis firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
