    Just put a cop there. Or even better, open up small community stations in these troubled areas with beat cops 24/7.

    The somewhat old rumor at City Hall is that the community centre redevelopment is dead or at least in difficulty. The community consultation was last summer and if I recall the timeline correctly was supposed to be approved by Council by now. Anyone have info?

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to share an article that I wrote that features the historic character of Toronto's Moss Park district and the history of its various phases of development.

    The article sheds light on the "urban renewal" plan that was implemented in the 1950s while posing a series of thought provoking questions about the nature of city building and "slum" politics.

    Finally, the article concludes critiquing the proposals for further redevelopment and underlines the importance of preservation and revitalization of Moss Park's historic buildings.

    Comments are appreciated

    Hope you enjoy

    Any idea what is planned for the 214 - 226 Sherbourne St. Empty Lot (Corner of Sherb and Dundas) ? There was a for sale sign , it was recently taken down.

    I found this link regarding the empty lot: http://ocap.ca/expropriate-230-sherbourne/

    Looks like OCAP is fighting for the city to purchase it. Interesting to see how the neighbourhood association will react to this?

    I wish the Sally Ann and city that owns much of the shelter and rooming house beds on Sherbourne would clean up the litter dumped by their clients. It’s an embarrassment to cycle up Sherbourne and see piles of Timmies cups, etc. strewn about.
