    UNSAFE ROAD CROSSING AT ORIOLE PKWY AND COLLEGE VIEW

    Please read and vote to support our proposed changes:

    https://goo.gl/forms/YQQVYUPVhmfnu6qe2

     

    Dear Neighbours on Oriole Parkway and in Chaplin Estates,

    As you may have seen, the crosswalk at Oriole Pkwy at College View Ave is not a

    safe crossing for our children or ourselves. Time and time again, cars fly through

    the crosswalk when the lights are flashing when pedestrians are in the crosswalk.

    At our request, a police officer came to the area one morning this spring. He

    pulled 2 cars over for speeding and 2 cars over for going through the lights when

    pedestrians were waiting and the crosswalk lights were flashing. These

    infractions were within a 30 min window on a random weekday morning.

    The Oriole Park Association (OPA), represents residents in our area, has

    established a Standing Committee of the OPA to address this important traffic

    safety issue and to convince the city to remove the crosswalk and put a

    permanent 3-way stop at Oriole Pkwy and College View Ave. This committee

    includes Paul and Andrew Goldberg and Ann Tebo (residents on the east corners

    of Oriole Pkwy and Anderson Ave).

    On Tuesday, May 29 th we all met with City Councillor, Josh Matlow and he’s in

    agreement that changing to a 3-way stop sign will make crossing Oriole Pkwy

    much safer for residents. But to make this change happen, he needs the

    community’s support. So, we are circulating this petition and asking you to

    please voice your support by selecting Yes on this google form and including your

    name and the street you live on: https://goo.gl/forms/YQQVYUPVhmfnu6qe2 .

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact the OPA at oriole.safety@gmail.com , or Ann Tebo at annvh22@hotmail.com .

    We sincerely thank you for your support.

    David McMahon – President OPA

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNITY ISSUES

As we all know our neighbourhood is subject to serious development pressure, and development issues have occupied much of the board’s time. Among these issues are:

Community Development Committee of Adjustment – Single Family Homes

The OPA keeps a close eye on applications for home renovations and tear- downs in our neighbourhood.

We receive details about applications from the Committee including a description of the proposed changes and the deadline for submitting to the committee. We forward information about homes in our area to a special email list. You can subscribe here: Oriole Park Association - Committee of Adjustment notices.

Metrolinx – Eglinton LRT

The OPA is involved in the ongoing process of the development of the new Light Rail Transit line in our area.

One major concern for the community is that Eglinton Avenue is to have restricted lanes westbound between Oriole Parkway and Braemar Avenue for the construction of the Avenue Road Station.

The proposals as detailed below will last until 2021.

The businesses on the north side will have very restricted access and visibility.

The second concern is that Metrolinx in their initial proposal wished to ‘clear cut’ the area on the south side of the North Toronto Community Center between the eastern driveway and the western boundary beside the ‘Art Barn’ building. The area is to be used for storage and construction vehicles

The OPA community involvement is:

  • We attend meetings on behalf of the membership and community as well as sit on a ‘working group’ Chaired by Councillor Cristin Carmichael-Greb (Ward 16) and as supported by our Councillor Josh Matlow ( Ward 22).
  • The working group is comprised of elected officials; Senior City of Toronto Staff including Metrolinx and Crosslinx staff. The local residents associations are represented by the Eglinton Avenue Road Community Association: the Eglinton Park Ratepayers Association as well as the OPA.
  • We will provide updates via our Twitter and Facebook Accounts as well our email subscribers as they come available.
