Eglinton LRT meeting tomorrow

The city will host a meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) on updated plans for the Mount Dennis section of the Eglinton LRT.  The new plans call for extending light rail to the airport area (instead of John Tory’s original plan for subways), fewer stops, and some very cool grade separations to clear busy intersections.

New Community Centre Moves Forward

Location of the new community centre.

A beautiful new community centre on the south-east corner of Black Creek Drive and Eglinton is another step closer to reality following approval to amend the Official Plan at today’s Etobicoke York Community Council meeting. The two-storey centre will house a swimming pool, gym, track, kitchen, meeting rooms and other facilities. Officially in Ward 12, the centre will be welcomed by Weston residents. Although 170 trees will have to be removed from the site to accommodate the building and infrastructure, more than a thousand replacements will be planted.
