Bayview Village includes the area bounded by Bayview Ave., Sheppard Ave., Finch Ave. and the East Don River. See Map.
The Bayview Village Association (BVA) is a non-profit community organization for residents of Bayview Village. Established in 1956, the BVA works towards enhancing the quality of life for the residents by building community, pride, city and community awareness and by addressing issues of concern to the neighbourhood.

Sidewalk Blockage by Trees or Shrubs
Bayview Village's intrepid walkers have probably encountered shrubs or low-hanging tree branches encroaching on sidewalks. This most often occurs behind back-lotted properties (such as are found on much of the East side of Bayview Ave.) This issue can be reported to Toronto 311 who will generate a service request to Transportation Services regarding the overgrown shrubs, and Transportation Services will investigate the location to determine ownership and responsibility for maintenance. In the event that there is a safety issue it will be dealt with on a priority basis.
You can also report knocked-down street signs in need of repair to Toronto 311.

New Membership Category
The BVA By-laws have been revised to include a new membership class
"Friends of the Association", which will include persons living outside the boundaries of Bayview Village but with 'common bonds' (such as having lived in Bayview Village previously) to the Association. Such members will pay dues but not have BVA voting rights. They will however enjoy all other rights and privileges of membership.
