Who are we, and why are we fuzzy?
We are a small but growing community group hoping to find an official name for our neighbourhood. We call ourselves “fuzzy” because our boundaries are intentionally undefined. We want to be as inclusive as possible, but very roughly we think of our community as stretching from Davenport to the base of Perth Avenue, and filling in the area between the train tracks that run east of Dundas and west of Lansdowne. Our mission to name this orphaned zone has the support of Councillor Adam Giambrone, and our group includes members from Dig IN, the South Junction Triangle Residents Association, the Rankin Crescent Community Garden, Perth Avenue Co-Op, and the Perth Avenue Park Community Festival.
What’s in a name and why does our neighbourhood need one?
We are not out to name the neighbourhood ourselves, but to inspire the community to choose a name, or perhaps to make one of the names already in use official. On the City of Toronto Neighbourhood Map, our area is part of a large section named Dovercourt-Wallace-Emerson-Junction
