City Meeting for Bike Lanes on Eglinton

Hi all. Below is an alert from the Toronto Cyclists Union (soon to be renamed Cycling Toronto) on some upcoming public meetings regarding the development of the Eglinton LRT and whether or not bike lanes will be included on the entire route. If anyone can make one of these meetings to support bike lanes across all of Eglinton I encourage you to do so.

Donald Simmons

======================================­

The City of Toronto has announced that it will undertake an
Environmental Assessment over the underground section of the Eglinton
Ave LRT, from Black Creek Drive to Brentcliffe Road. As you may
already know, the proposed Eglinton Ave LRT route includes bike lanes
on the surface section, but NOT the underground section. Now, the City
will explore re-designing the street surface over the underground
section. This is OUR chance to ensure bike lanes are included in the
conversation and to advocate for their implementation as part of the
final Environmental Assessment recommendations! BUT, WE NEED YOUR
HELP.

This month, there will be three (3) public consultation meetings to
introduce the objectives of the study, discuss guiding principles and
provide an opportunity for the community to provide feedback. WE NEED
TO FILL THE ROOM WITH AS MANY CYCLISTS AS POSSIBLE TO SEND A CLEAR
SIGNAL THAT EGLINTON AVENUE SHOULD BE RE-DESIGNED AS A COMPLETE STREET
WITH SAFE AND CONVENIENT PROVISIONS FOR CYCLING.

Below are the meeting dates and location. You can also find more
information for each meeting here. [2]

ACTION ALERT: Demand Complete Streets for Eglinton by attending one
of the following public consultation meetings:

THURSDAY, MAY 17 - Fairbank Memorial Community Centre: 2213 Dufferin
Street (south of Eglinton Ave. West)

TUESDAY, MAY 22 - The Hub at Victoria Village: 1527 Victoria Park
Avenue (north of Eglinton Ave. East)

THURSDAY, MAY 24 - Northern District Library: 40 Orchard View Blvd.
(northwest of Yonge Street and Eglinton Ave. West)

ALL MEETINGS BEGIN AT 7PM AND END AT 9PM.

Together, we can make Eglinton into a Complete Street. We hope to see
you there!

Ride Safely,

Andrea Garcia
Director of Advocacy
