Metrolinx Noise Wall Meeting this Saturday!
Concerns about plans to build five metre tall Noise Walls along the Georgetown South rail corridor have prompted the Provincial Government to undertake a review. Metrolinx is preparing a technical study of the need for Noise Walls with electric trains and the Minister of Transportation is looking for feedback from area residents.
To help spread the word and ensure that all interested West Toronto residents have an opportunity to express their views about the Noise Walls, the Junction Triangle Rail Committee is hosting a meeting of representatives from community groups along the Georgetown South rail corridor on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 1 p.m. at the Perth/Dupont Library (1589 Dupont).
We`re inviting area groups to send a representative to learn more about this opportunity and how residents can easily express their concerns about these massive barriers scheduled to be built in the final phase of construction of the Pearson air-rail link in 2014.
We believe there is no blanket approach to the construction of these barriers. Each community should be consulted about the need for Noise Walls in their community. We want to facilitate an expression of views rather than jam our choice on everyone. "Local Preference" and how to communicate that effectively is the aim of our event.
If you would like to send a representative from the Weston Village Residents Association, please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
