On April 28th, join over 200,000 residents, students, businesses, organizations and communities as we clean Toronto together for the 16th annual spring cleanup!
The Roncesvalles Village BIA & RoncyWorks will be hosting the Roncesvalles Avenue Community Clean Up. We will be encouraging BIA members to clean in front of their businesses on the sidewalk and their back laneway. We will be inviting community members to assist us with the gardens and tree grates along Roncesvalles.
All items needed for the clean up will be provided by the City of Toronto and the Roncesvalles Village BIA. We will have two groups meeting at 10:50AM; one meeting at Dundas and Roncesvalles Peace Garden, and the other meeting and Howard Johnson Inn. We will make our way up the street at 11:00AM and meet in the middle of Roncesvalles Avenue to end the clean around 1:00PM. Dress comfortably and for the weather!
So we know how many people to expect, please fill out the form below:

Sidewalk Café & Marketing Display Bylaw Review: Public Consultation
From the City of Toronto:
“In addition to the presentation by Municipal Licensing & Standards and Public Realm at the Interdepartmental meeting on January 15, 2019, the general public will be invited to attend the City’s public consultation on the Sidewalk Cafés & Marketing Displays Bylaw Review on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at Toronto City Hall, Committee Room 4, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
The purpose of this review is to harmonize the bylaw so that consistent standards are applied across the City. As part of the review, the City is proposing updated fees, as well as new standards and options for marketing displays and sidewalk cafés (for example, curbside cafés and parklet cafés).
We are also writing to you today in hopes that you can help us promote this consultation among your network, who may be interested to provide their input. Please find below a short article for either your website or newsletter and sample social media posts that you can use to help promote this.
