Why are other areas of the city, receiving so much more money than the Junction for infastucture.

Regent park is over 50 percent completed in its  revitalization,  with large tracts of community house being built in smaller sections of market rate housing.  At the beginning of the video through the below easy block 23 of the Daniels corporation,  A small block consisting of market rate homes starting at 1.2 million.

Just up the street in a bit to the right and being close to Nelson Mandela public-school is a high-rise long also developed by the just up the street in a bit to the right and being close to Nelson Mandela public-school is a high-rise block also developed by  The Daniels corporation.  The Daniels corporation is developing both the community housing in the private housing in the area. The quality and design of the Daniels Corporation  development layout and building construction  In subsidized and market rate housing  is exceptional.

The community funds the Daniels Corporation  is required to contribute to community structures and spaces in the area as part of their agreement to be the master developer of the Regent Park  revitalization,  are what is really revitalize you the area.

However the Daniels community funds as required by the city,  commonly referred to as  commonly referred to section 37 funds,  we are not the only major contributing funds to the redevelopment spending spree on community spaces buildings and ongoing activities.

The MLSE Foundation  has  contribute a large amount towards the region are green space and sports green.

…but I live in the Junction, why should I care about all this

Simply because the Junction community buildings and cultural spaces are outmoded and thread bear. In no way can any of the parks, recreation centres service the current situation and needs of the community. And as This blog author travels non stop accross the city to community building and municipal public use space, I rattle.  The Annette recreation centre (1972) does not have an older adult room nor a  Multi use room for the community. The junction has an unused police station but a few number of people have worked diligently to the community use what do you just not have neede The junction has an unused police station but a few number of people have worked diligently to the community use,  but they have just not had the support needed. Well in in Parkdale area, the community  has taken control and retrofitted to older use buildings,  One being the w being the Walbash Building.

As the system of section 37 funds disbursement into the areas only adjacent to the real estate development providing the funds, sp disbursement into the areas only adjacent to the real estate development providing the funds,  section 37 does not work.

But section 37 funds are not the only way for community to revitalize itself, community groups with directed intention and solicit funds to greater magnitude the most people expect from foundations,  at higher levels of government. As this happens in good measure in the area such as Regent Park, North Bathurst, Cork Town and more, and the Junction  in the Junction triangle lag significantly in  receiving this funny.

This post is getting a bit long, but the Junction is a great community, and does not need to settle for less.

Contruction in Regent Park today.
