Cedarbrae Library the list of activities

Cedarbrae Library is offering a number of workshops this month including mapping personal and community change.  The program uses collage, sound, found objects, walking/talking tours, installations and online platforms, to explore the power of map making as a communication tool. Work with artist and educator Karen Darricades to help guide and develop the workshop.

Welcome to Cedar Ridge!
Thank you to Wayne Gratton, Cedar Ridge Community Association President and Sal Haferjee, Community Volunteer and founder of the outdoor Youth Hockey League at Cornell Park, for joining me for the unveiling of the new “Welcome To Cedar Ridge” community signs.  The signs are receiving a lot of positive attention.

City Street Furniture Installation in your Community!
As part of the City "street furniture" program across Ward 43…..a litter receptacle will be installed at the South/East corner of Markham Rd. and Lawrence Ave. E.
If there are other locations where you think one could be put and/or also have concerns about littering please let me know.

Lawrence Avenue East at Mossbank Drive Pedestrian Walk Time Inquiry
A requested to increase the pedestrian walk time at the intersection of Lawrence Avenue East at Mossbank Drive was investigated by Transportation Services.  The review concluded the north/south pedestrian flashing doesn't walk time be increased. The timing meets all of the Transportation Departments guidelines. See full memo here.   

Lawrence Avenue East & Susan Street
There is a damaged vehicle detection system at the intersection of Marcella and Scarborough Golf Club Road.
I have been advised that this old technology will be replaced with a camera.  Installation of this camera will be June/July 2018, once the contract is awarded.

School Safety Zones Program
Toronto City Council introduced a new program last September under the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan called "School Safety Zones". Under a pilot project School Safety Zones are being installed in seven locations across Toronto. Two Ward 43 schools will be part of this project, Cornell Junior Public School located at 61 Holmfirth Terrace, and Willow Park Junior Public School located at 45 Windover Drive.  The project aims to improve safety around schools by reducing aggressive driving and speeding through the use of enhanced signage, as well as pavement markings.  I will be working with both schools to ensure the projects are a success.
