Text of her letter….

To: Chair and Members of Etobicoke York Community Council Re: Request for an Area Study of Junction Road
SUMMARY:
In the City of Toronto, in the St. Clair Stockroads area, there is an area in need of revitalization on Junction Rd. This area is bounded by the CN/Metrolinx Rail lands to the south, Keele Street to the west, Old Weston Rd to the East and Junction Rd to the north. It is a community undergoing revitalization in the surrounding areas, with new residential developments and commercial businesses, encroaching on old light industrial communities. Along Keele St and Mulock Road, there is a moderate area of residential units, which are interspersed with businesses.
The specific addresses included in this area would be 43 and 5 junction rd and 0 Monarch Rd, Toronto ,(Plan 840 lots 1 to16 pt lot 17 / plan 446 pt lots 12 to 15 rp / plan 1136 pt lots 5 to 11 rp 66 r 20826 part 3 / plan 1136 pt block plan840 lots 20 to 28 and pt lot 19 rp 66 r.)
A short distance to the north of the area is the new St. Clair Avenue Light Rapid Transit Line, which is an increasingly valuable asset in this community offering a much-needed public transit option. The industrial area flanks the neighbouring Metrolinx line. Some of the industrial buildings sit empty while others are in disrepair.
With the increasing population, growth on the avenue and smaller residential streets, there is a demand for an overall improvement to the streetscape, transportation routes and to the businesses in the area to better compliment the needs and of the community and better use of the land adjacent within walking distance of the LRT route.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
1. City Council request the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District, to undertake an Area Study of Junction Rd, including a review of existing land uses, urban design and gateway features for the lands bounded by CN/Metrolinx Rail lands to the south, Keele Street to the west, Old Weston Rd to the East and to the north along the south side of Junction Rd
Yours Sincerely,
Frances Nunziata
Councillor, Ward 11, York South-Weston
