Our Streets - inserting oneself into the municipal process
Our Streets - inserting oneself into the municipal process: a discussion for the everyday person on how to bring pedestrian change to their neighbourhood
Date: Sunday September 30
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Cecil Street Community Centre, 58 Cecil Street (near College and Spadina)
Local residents, community groups and Business Improvement Areas are full of great pedestrian ideas for their neighbourhoods but feel paralyzed when it comes to effecting change. Where do I start? Who do I talk to? Where does the money come from for all this? These are just a few questions. While the municipality directs change at the citywide level, we have a valuable resource that can offer input and ideas on the finest details: area residents and businesses.
Come join TCAT for an open and frank discussion about how to insert oneself in the process and bring pedestrian change to your neighbourhood. Featuring:
* Paul Hess, Geography & Planning Professor, University of Toronto
* Paul Bedford, former Chief Planner, City of Toronto
* Janice Etter, citizen activist involved with the campaign that led to the ban on new drive-thrus
Moderated by Catherine Porter, Toronto Star Environment Reporter
