Street Furniture Installations in Ward 25

Transportation Service’s Street Furniture Management team has been hard at work this winter, preparing for their 2017 installations.

I’m pleased to share that Ward 25 will be receiving 11 new transit shelters, 38 litter receptacles, 4 benches, 1 poster structure and 1 publication structure.

Also, as part of the Street Furniture Program, the city is offering Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) the opportunity to request the installation of on-street benches for up to the entire BIA area, free of charge.

With the goal of improving the amenities around businesses and the community, the city will work with BIAs to determine feasible bench locations, and BIAs will get to choose the bench colour.

I am pleased to report that a bus shelter was installed significantly ahead of schedule in front of 20 Sanderling Place in Don Mills!

Residents spoke out loudly about the need for a bus shelter on my last visit, especially given the number of seniors in the area that rely on public transit.

I am glad to see it completed ahead of schedule, particularly given the numerous obstacles we had to overcome to make it happen!
