Upcoming Public Forum

9 Feb

Friends of Berczy Park working group members attended the January 30th gathering of the St Lawrence Market Neighbourhood Business Improvement Association (BIA) to hear about community projects, including St James Park and the recently announced 8-80 Cities project.

As described in the 8-80 Cities newsletter (follow the link), 8-80 Cities is a non-profit organization that leads vibrant urban planning projects, by working with renowned international designers.  Berczy Park is one of eight Ontario sites chosen as an 8-80 Cities site, with sponsorship by the BIA, and funding from the City and Province. With plans to complete this project by 2015, things are just getting rolling and you can get involved at a Public Forum on Monday, February 27th (Watch for more details as they’re announced).

Friends of Berczy Park is collaborating on this innovative project, while we also work with community partners to bring about complementary, near term park enhancements.
