President’s Winter Message 2018
Now as we head into the Christmas Season and start to ponder both the year past and the year ahead we can be thankful North Rosedale offers a family-focused and pet-friendly oasis in the heart of midtown Toronto. The Board has been working diligently over the summer and throughout the fall to preserve and augment this charming neighbourhood. The fall brought us the opening of the Chorley Trail switchback along with a successful community tree planting event. The Municipal Election on October 22 saw the election of our new City Councillor Mike Layton. New ward boundaries and reduced number of wards from 47 to 25 make collaborating with neighbouring resident associations on issues of common interest even more important. For example, the NRRA is working closely with the South Rosedale and other Residents’ Associations to address the Heritage Conservation District issues raised by the proposed demolition of three homes on Dale Avenue and the construction of a luxury condominium on that site. Ensuring that renovations and new construction in North Rosedale are consistent with our Heritage Conservation District design guidelines is one of our top priority files. Other priorities include the Glen Road Reconstruction; implementing a Street Captain Program; and ravine remediation. Additionally the Board has added a new committee that has a goal of engaging our community through events and activities such as the Holiday Skating Party on December 15. The volunteer members of the board continue to give their time and talents to ensure this lovely Village in the City continues to thrive now, and for generations to come.
