Councillor Moscoe Moved and Councillor Vaughan seconded that all properties backing onto public or private laneways be required to post a municipal number at the rear of the property, in a manner that enables that property to be identified from the laneway.
Summary from city documents
The Toronto Municipal Code requires all homes and buildings in the City of Toronto to display a municipal number. The City is undertaking measures to ensure that there is universal conformity with this by-law. There is, however, no requirement to display a municipal number at the rear of a property. This
became a matter of concern during last year’s fire on Queen Street West, when firefighters often had difficulty identifying the properties from the rear laneways.
