Ward 14 is a unique and vibrant community in Toronto. How will it look in 10, 20 or 30 years? Planning for the future means setting priorities for our community, and making sure changes to our neighbourhoods are consistent with our vision for a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous community.

Working with City Planning, I continue to work to ensure the highest standard is met for public input and consultation, to ensure development is to scale, mixed use and helps contribute to a more inclusive Ward 14. Together with the community, Toronto-Danforth has been the subject of several planning studies, which were the result of years of consultation and input from our community.

A significant accomplishment was securing the Red Door Shelter’s new home in a new development on Queen St. East. Upon hearing that the Red Door Shelter was facing relocation, I worked with the City, the developers, the shelter and thousands of residents to push for a breakthrough solution to keep these families in our community. My sincere hope is that this becomes an example for the City as we work to plan complete communities.

Toronto urged to revamp its approach to emergency shelters

Councillors want Torontonians to help as pressure on city shelters grows

By John Rieti, CBC News Apr 08, 2017 5:00 AM

This April, nearly 1,000 refugees will spend the night at a Toronto shelter.

With that number steadily climbing and housing getting more and more expensive, city councillors are hoping to build more shelter spaces across the city.

Coun. Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) admits that with shelters at 97 per cent capacity — far higher than council's committed target of 90 per cent — the pressure is on.

Fletcher weighs in on Commonwealth Bid

In an interview with CP24 Sunday afternoon, Coun. Paula Fletcher agreed that council would need lots of information from staff before moving forward, but she said the idea is worth examining.

“I think we should look at it,” Fletcher said. “It would be just reasonable since we had the Pan Am Games and we have all of that infrastructure. Let’s see what it would cost and if we could actually pull it off.”

Will East Harbour be the city's hot new business hub?

Development calls for 10M square feet of office space, and 2M square feet of retail

Andrea Janus, CBC News Feb 25, 2017 5:00 AM

The city calls it the former Unilever site. But the developer that's taken over the 60 acres of land down near Lake Shore Boulevard and the Don Valley Parkway has a new name for the space it hopes to turn into a second city business hub: East Harbour.

Carlaw + Dundas New Signature Marker

Update: The new signature marker stands up to media criticism! Take a look at some of the articles that have been written about the our signature marker in Urban Toronto, the Toronto Sun, and the Beach Mirror.

I am proud to announce that we have a winner for the Carlaw + Dundas Signature Marker Design!  Internationally acclaimed Toronto artist and designer Pierre Poussin's obelisk marker will become an iconic feature of the neighbourhood and will help raise the bar on public space design.

Let's go Contraflow on Chatham!

With the recent tragic cycling deaths in Toronto, it is widely recognized that more safe cycling connections are needed. Following the public consultation on contraflow bike lanes at this year’s Pocket Community Association Annual General Meeting, a contraflow bike lane will be installed on Chatham Avenue!

A contraflow bike lanes gets installed on a one-way street and allows cyclists to legally travel in both directions. They are cost effective, safe, and ensure that cyclists are not forced onto busy arterial roads that lack proper cycling infrastructure.

The Better Way in Ward 30

Riverdale, Leslieville and East Harbour get new Subway and Smart Track stations

In June, I joined Mayor Tory and Transportation Minister Stephen Del Duca to announce two new Smart Track RER stations that will be built along the existing GO Corridor at the East Harbour (Unilever site) and in Riverdale at Gerrard. These new stations will be served by frequent service electrified trains, connecting our neighbourhoods with downtown and the suburbs.  You can contact my office for more information and to find out about Metrolinx's public consultations.
