WBCA monthly meetings begin again this Wednesday

A new season begins!

Hello West Benders,

Hope you are all enjoying the final days of summer!

With Fall upon us, a new session for the West Bend Community Association begins!  We have a busy year ahead of us.  Our first meeting of the session will take this coming Wednesday, September 20th at 7pm in our regular location, the second floor staff room at Indian Road Crescent Public School.  Everyone receiving this newsletter is welcome and encouraged to attend.  Bring a neighbour too!

One major initiative this fall will be the rebuilding of the irrigation system in the Railside Gardens.  Metrolinx has verbally approved funds for the community to reconstruct the system that was destroyed when the noise wall was installed.  We are currently waiting on the landscape contractor to finish the bed as specified in their contract, and then the West Bend Community Association will assume responsibility for long-term maintenance.  If you would like to participate as a volunteer then reply to this newsletter, or even better, drop by Wednesday’s meeting.

We have several projects that will be carrying over from last year including our Emergency Preparedness initiative.  As several weather events of this past summer have reminded us, it is important to have an emergency readiness plan.  Many locals are working to develop this additional layer of safety and security especially for the vulnerable in our community, and your voluntary participation would be most welcome.  Stay tuned for more information about how you can get involved and be a part of this important initiative.

There are  property developments in the neighbourhood entering the planning and construction phases.  In particular, work looks ready to begin on the site just north of the Crossways; and a new mid/high-rise development is planned on Dundas northwest of the Dundas, Dupont, Annette, Old Weston intersection (DDAOWi).  On the topic of the DDAOWi itself, we are  looking forward to the City hosting its first public consultation this Fall regarding substantial safety improvements proposed for this difficult and dangerous intersection.

Construction begins later this month on a significant refresh of Chelsea Playground.  Thanks again to all community members who contributed their time and input to help develop the final plans, which you can view here.

In October, the West Bend Community Association will hold its Annual General Meeting.  We will elect our executive team and establish our mandate for the coming session.  If you would like to play a role in the governance of the Association, please make plans to attend on Wednesday, October 18.

TTC Construction Notice

Friends,

Following the major track maintenance work this past summer, ongoing quality assurance checks are performed by staff to identify any deficiencies that may exist.

As a result of a recent quality check, staff has identified an area between Dundas West and Keele stations that requires tamping the ballast to further secure the track in place.

Date: September 6 to 8, 2017 – approximately 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.
*Content/timeline is accurate at time of printing. Weather permitting.

A track crew and a work-car will be in the area overnight from September 6 to 8 to complete this localized work.

While efforts will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum, some noise will be unavoidable when the work-car is in operation.

Thank you for your continued patience with this matter.

Metrolinx work to reinstate track on Milton corridor

THE LOCAL PROJECT

Overnight work will commence agin on September 5th, to reinstate the second span of track on the Milton corridor between Keele Street and Bloor Station. During construction of the West Toronto Diamond grade separation, this span of track was temporarily decommissioned, as trains could not safely operate so close to the worksite. With construction in this area completed, the second track can now be reinstated.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Continuing on September 5th overnight hydrovacuum truck work will take place in the rail corridor near Abott
Ave., from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., for approximately two weeks, dependent on weather. Lights will be directed
on the worksite and some noise and vibrations are to be expected as a result of the hydrovac. To ensure that
vibrations stay within city bylaws there is a vibration monitor on site at all times throughout the project, where
we will continue to monitor vibration levels. This work can only be done at night, when there’s minimal train
activity.

TIMING

Hours of operation are as follows:
Weekdays: 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Overnight: 8:00 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Weekends: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
