West Bend Community Association October 2018 Newsletter

Two elections in one week!

Hello West Bend Community,

This Tuesday, the local community associations in Ward 4 are sponsoring an all-candidates meeting to give residents an opportunity to meet the individuals seeking your vote to be City Councillor.  The event team has worked hard to ensure it will be an interesting event for all, where attendees can form a solid and informed opinion on who should represent them at City Hall.  You are highly encouraged to attend!  If there are questions on specific issues that you would like to see asked of the candidates, please respond with them to this newsletter.

On Wednesday, October 17th we will hold our Annual General Meeting.  The meeting is open to everyone!  We will be accepting new members and welcoming returning members to vote on our executive team and goals for the upcoming year.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Municipal election on October 22
  • Traffic calming in the West Bend
  • Adopt a section of the Railside Garden
  • Multiple high-rise development proposals
  • A donation to the Junction Historical Society

With a smaller city council and significantly more residents represented by each Councillor, Community Associations take on even greater importance.  The West Bend Community Association represents the interests of our local community and has had a very noticeable and positive impact. 

We helped prevent Metrolinx from building a 5m solid concrete wall shadowing our Railside Garden — a garden which we now have funds to build and maintain.  We stopped an oversized 30 storey building from being constructed on the tiny plot at Bloor & Dundas, we oversaw the revitalization of many local parks, and we continue to insist that the many new real-estate developments in the area make as positive a contribution to the community as possible.

Your Community Association is a great place to sound out neighbourhood concerns and find others that share them with you.  We work together to ensure the West Bend remains among the best places in Toronto to live, work and visit.  We exist because of and for our local community.  If you would like to get more involved in the neighbourhood, want to get to know more of your neighbours, or are just curious; please come out and join us on Wednesday.

We look forward to seeing you for the beginning of an exciting year in the West Bend!

 

In this Newsletter:

  • Meet your Candidates for City Council on Tuesday
  • WBCA Annual General Meeting on Wednesday

Are you ready for the upcoming Municipal election?

View this email in your browser

Election time is here!

Barring any further surprises, we will head to the polls in just over a month to set the direction for our City for the next four years.  This election campaign has been one of the most chaotic ever – but please don’t let that turn you away from participating.  If anything, now more than ever, this is our opportunity to show that we DO care about the governance and the fate of our City of Toronto.

Confused by all the talk of changing wards?
Not sure who you will even have the opportunity to vote for?
You are not alone!

On Monday, October 22nd, you will have an opportunity to make your selection for the Mayor of Toronto, your local representative on City Council, and your School Board Trustee.  Do not forget about your School Board Trustees.  Combined, Toronto’s school boards manage over 4 billion dollars of our taxed money!

One of the traditional roles of a Community Association is to provide residents opportunities to meet their candidates, to get to know their platforms, and facilitate an informed decision on who to vote for.

Our ward now stretches from Dufferin Road to the Humber River, between Lake Ontario and the railway tracks (Railpath & the tracks north of Dundas).  We will share a City Councillor and School Board Trustees with neighbourhoods including Parkdale, Roncesvalles, High Park, The Junction, Swansea, and Baby Point.  Several of these neighbourhoods will be hosting all candidates meetings during the month of October, and we will share the dates and locations with you as soon as possible.
 

Who might be willing to help us host an all candidates meeting here in the West Bend?

Most importantly, we will need people to attend!  We need as many people as possible from the community to participate.  Please let us know what would make you consider attending such an event.  Are you tired of ‘debates’ consisting only of rehearsed sound bites?  Do you find it impractical to attend a weekday evening session?  Reply to this email with your feedback and suggestions on what you would like the event to be!  What can the West Bend Community Association do to help you and your neighbours make a confident and informed vote?

If we do host a meeting, we will need people to help promote the event, assist as ushers, and act as time keepers, organizers, and more.  Are you interested in lending your time and skills to this important democratic cause?  No ‘experience’ is necessary — if you want to take part, then we want you!  Students – this will be far more hands-on than civics class and you can even collect some volunteer hours!

We must act fast!

There are at least 5 candidates seeking to represent us on City Council and approximately three dozen candidates for mayor!  The list will be finalized by end of day tomorrow.  We need to make a decision on whether or not to host a meeting and what it should look like within the next week.  Please respond to this email to let us know of your interest in attending or helping host a democracy strengthening event.  Feedback and suggestions on how to run the event are most welcome.  I personally don’t want to see ‘just another sound-bite fest’, and so I am appealing to all of you for ideas on how to make it better.  I promise to respond to every one of you who writes me back!

I have some thoughts;  How about a gathering on a Saturday?  Maybe we could run the event as a social instead of as a lecture?  Let’s invite the candidates for School Board Trustee too, as there so few forums to hear from them.

Your vote is just the beginning!

Through the WBCA, we can hold our representatives accountable and promote a well run and healthy City between elections too!

Whether or not we have sufficient interest to host an all candidates event, the WBCA will do what we can to provide you with information you need to know about the people that seek to represent us.  We have compiled a list of issues important to the neighbourhood: aggressive traffic, (excessive?) high-rise developments, a lack of neighbourhood character preservation, and community services that do not seem able to keep up with our growing population.  We will be seeking formal responses from our candidates on these issues and will make all efforts to get this information to you so that on October 22nd, you can have your say!

West Bend Community Association – September 2018 Newsletter

Back to school, back to work, back to the polls…

Hope everyone had a great summer!  It is certainly shaping up to be an interesting Autumn.
 
The West Bend Community Association reconvenes this coming Wednesday, September 19th for our 2018-2019 session.  We will meet in our usual place – the second-floor staff room at Indian Road Crescent Public School, at 7pm.  Look for signs from the main entrance; the staff room is directly above. 

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!  Our first meeting of the season is the perfect opportunity to come and see what the Association is all about – especially if you have never attended one of our meetings before.  There is much to discuss.  In September we plan our agenda for the year.  In October we hold our Annual General Meeting where we will select our executive and get to work!
 
Our neighbourhood is under considerable development pressure, with no less than three significant local developments in stages from proposal to under-construction.  These developments will have a noticeable impact on the neighbourhood during construction and perhaps even more once they house thousands of new residents in the neighbourhood.  There will be impacts on traffic, city services, local transit, and more.  How might it affect you?
 
As a result of a study commissioned by your West Bend Community Association and carried out by engineering students from the University of Toronto, the City is evaluating options to reconstruct the intersection at Dundas, Dupont, Annette, and Old Weston.  This was clearly identified as a confusing and dangerous intersection and the City will be presenting some options for improvement sometime this fall.  Next up – the intersection at Bloor and Dundas.
 
You may have noticed some of your neighbours working on the Railside Gardens.  The Community has assumed responsibility for the Garden, and has fsome unding for planting and maintenance.  If you are interested in helping build and maintain the Railside Garden, we would love to have you onboard.
 
There will be a Municipal election this fall.  We don’t quite know what ward we will be voting in or who the candidates are that we will choose from, but those details will have to unfold over the next 5 weeks.  Stay tuned.  This will be defining election for the City of Toronto and I sincerely hope you all participate.
 
A tunnel to the UP Express station, 30 km/h speed limits, cars rolling stop signs, dog parks, people parks, historical buildings, laneway housing, runaway real estate, neighbourhood watch and more…  If it matters to you in the community, then it matters to your Community Association!
 
Hope to see you on Wednesday.

 

Your West Bend Community Association meets this coming:

Wednesday, September 19th @7pm.

Whether or not you have attended one or our meetings in the past or if this would be your first time, you are encouraged to attend.  We are here to support your voice for the Community.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or feedback, you can reply directly to this email.
