Ward 18: Davenport

You need to join a ward group to see all the updates. You can still see all public ward updates and events.

Davenport has one of the highest percentages of commuter cyclists in Toronto, but doesn't have a lot of cycling infrastructure. Come join us in advocating for more bike lanes!

Liz Sutherland on Mar 23, 2014

Hi gang,

Here are the notes from our March meeting that Hyedie kindly wrote up. We'll meet next month at my place although I'm looking around for bigger spaces as we're starting to outgrow people's living rooms!

I'll post an agenda for the April 14 meeting closer to the date -- let me know if you have suggestions!

Happy cycling,

Liz

Reminder - City consultation tonight on Dewson-Havelock-Lindsey contra-flow bike route
Liz Sutherland on Mar 4, 2014

Come on out and tell the City what you think of the proposed side-street bike route that will go along Dewson, Havelock and Lindsey (near Dufferin Grove Park) to join up Harbord St with the Railpath and an eventual route west to High Park.

The consultation starts at 6 pm. Details are posted here: http://www.bikeevents.to/event/public-consultation-dewson-lindsey-havelo...

There's a Cycle Toronto captains' meeting at the same time, so we need all the cyclists we can get at the public meeting!

Thanks,

Liz

Invitation to ward advocates: Thursday Feb 27, 6-8pm - What's New with Bikes and Schools
Kristin Schwartz on Feb 19, 2014

Greetings ward advocates - I coordinate the Bike to School Project with Cycle Toronto, CultureLink and our partners. Many times I've been asked by cycling advocates about how to "involve students" or "connect with schools".

To help answer this question, I've worked with Jared to organize an event on Thursday Feb 27 at CultureLink (Dundas West and Bloor). Our presenters are from neighbourhoods across Toronto. They will share stories about successful collaborations that advance cycling and we'll have time for breakout groups as well to plan and brainstorm in a more focused way. All the details are here:

and you can register here: http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/whats-new-with-bikes-and-schools-in-toronto-registration-10426992415

Hope to see some of you there!

Kristin Schwartz

P.S. I know it's the same date and time as the Argyle meeting - unfortunately we had booked this long before that meeting was publicly announced. Go Argyle contraflow! Did you know that students at Central Commerce Collegiate wrote letters and deputed for the Shaw Street contraflow lane? It all helps!

SafeStreetsSeventeen is here!
jamker on Jan 24, 2014

January 15 at the Novocento Cafe

... Councillor Palacio and Alejandra Brava were among the small crowd for the second (I think) meeting of the fledgling Ward 17 group, named SafeStreetsSeventeen.

We brainstormed topics and categorized them and prioritized a couple: the Lansdowne/Davenport intersection ("safety") and requesting more bike posts on St Clair.

We also agreed that meeting once a month is just right for now; our next meeting is to be on Wed. Feb. 12--location TBD.
