My blogging break is hard to maintain when I see so much happening! Read to the end so that you don’t miss info about the upcoming public consultation for the Danforth Avenue planning study.
Oh, and a quick update to a previous post – DECA Connects discussion on empathy has been a postponed to the new year – stay tuned for details.
“Adopt a Family” Holiday Hamper Program
At this time of year, we always remind you to shop local and support local businesses. But we also have neighbours who are in need, and what better way to support them than through helping to fulfill their wish lists?
Three ways to help: make a cash donation, (get a tax receipt for anything over $25) volunteer during the week of Dec 17 to help pack or deliver the hampers, or “adopt” a family – get their wish list and shop for gifts for them (get a group together with friends, family or colleagues to make it easier!). Keisha, the coordinator, is aiming to “adopt” 100 local families this year. If you can help, here’s how to get in touch:

Planning Study Consultation, Monday Dec 11, 6:30-9:30pm
The City is holding the 4th Community Consultation Meeting on the Danforth Avenue Planning Study on Monday, December 11th at Hope United Church, 2550 Danforth Avenue, from 6:30-9:30pm.
The objective of the meeting is to review and obtain feedback from the community on the built form (building height, scale, and massing) analysis and engage in discussion about future development along our stretch of the Danforth.
DECA’s Visioning group has been working to prepare for the study for many years leading up to its launch and we continue to be a strong voice. Strong and vibrant communities have active participants. We encourage you to come out and participate and help shape the future of our neighbourhood.
