Curran Hall Community
Area: the residential area south of Ellesmere, east of Scarborough Golf Club Road, west of Highland Creek, north of Lawrence

Welcome to Curran Hall!
Thank you to John Barrett, a long time Curran Hall resident for joining me at the unveiling of the new “Welcome to Curran Hall Community” community sign located on the southeast corner of Orton Park Road and Ellesmere Road. I have been receiving many positive remarks on the signs. (The other one is located at the northeast corner of Orton Park Road and Lawrence Ave East!).

Slan Avenue: Underground Construction - full notice and the map
Toronto Hydro is planning to perform maintenance work on the aging underground electrical system in our community to help improve service reliability. The work includes the upgrade of electrical cables within the City of Toronto’s public property allowance in front of or adjacent to some residential properties.

This project is expected to begin by early November 2017 with an approximate completion date of late June 2018. The area includes sections of Military Trail and Slan Avenue between Scarborough Golf Club Road (West) and Morningside Avenue (East). Throughout this project, there will be no planned electrical outages.  Please review the full notice and the map of the project.

Resident Survey about Speed Limit on Orton Park Road: I sent a survey to residents who live on Orton Park Road asking if they support lowering the speed limit in front of both George B. Little Grade School and Henry Hudson Middle School. If you would also like to comment on this matter please do.

TTC on Brimorton Road/Scarborough Golf Club Road/Orton Park Road: I have been advocating with the TTC to alter the Ellesmere Road bus route to allow buses to travel down Scarborough Golf Club Road, along Brimorton Road, and back up Orton Park Road to Ellesmere. (No stops on Ellesmere would be effected.) Currently the TTC says this change would be too much of a service impact.  I will be sending area residents a petition.  My persistence and your voices will help with having this route adjustment made.

Botany Hill Park: Please advise me on your experience and rating of the park.  I would like to hear everyone's thoughts on the community centre programs and building, the playground area, the dog park, as well as the natural areas in the park.  

Fall 2017 Planting Plan for Morningside Park: City Parks' staff will be planting shrubs and trees native to Morningside Park near the entrance area just inside the front gate, off of Morningside Road on the south side of the park road, west to the main parking lot. This planting will close an unofficial trail which runs through this area and further enhance the natural character of the vegetation.  In total 135 trees will be planted along with 275 shrubs.
