Winter Safety Tips

Every winter whether snow fall values are high or not, ice is always a factor in slip and falls.
If you identify a slippery sidewalk or public area , you can assist by reporting the area to www.Toronto

Proposed Townhouse Development in Bayview Village

A developer is proposing to demolish seven houses and build 22 three-storey townhouses stretching from Burleigh Heights south to close to Blithfield. This will be a dangerous precedent if approved and could lead to similarly-high townhouses up and down Bayview and across Sheppard. We need our community’s help in opposing this proposed development.

Read the developer's planning report, the Preliminary Planning Report, and BVA's statement of opposition.
