A letter to the Mayor

With the amalgamation and the city councillors cut drastically, the way that City Council operates will change. Where there were once City Councillors on boards across the city for oversight there will now be private citizens.

The Harbord Residents’ Association, along. with the Annex Residents’ Association has written a letter to the Mayor to ensure that the process for choosing these private citizens has oversight.

We, the Danforth Resident’s Association along with 64 other associations, have given our support.

Neighbourhood Facts and Figures

Some facts and figures about our area:

5,000 people
2,000 households

We’ve got more families with kids (<15 years old) than average, but we’ll need to be a more senior-friendly neighbourhood: the 65+ will grow by 10% in the next 5 years. Are we ready for it?

 

The “index” shows how we compare relatively to the City of Toronto average (with the City average being “100”). Watch for more in the coming days! (Sources: Environics Analytics DemoStats 2018)
