COME RAIN OR SHINE! SERRA sponsors the first Jane’s Walk of Davisville Village

COME RAIN OR SHINE – WE’LL BE DOING OUR FIRST DAVISILLE VILLAGE WALK ON SATURDAY, MAY 6, AT 2 P.M. SEE YOU THERE!

 

In celebration of the anniversary Jane Jacob’s birthday, SERRA is sponsoring a walk through several of our neighbourhoods on May 6th at 2:00PM. The walk will begin at the historic J. J. Davis store located at the corner of the Yonge and Davisville. We will convene for the start of the tour at the back patio of the store (aka Starbucks).

Jane Jacobs was an American-Canadian journalist, author, and activist best known for her influence on urban studies. Jane moved to Toronto in 1968, eventually settling at 69 Albany Avenue in The Annex from 1971 until her death in 2006. She quickly became a leading figure in her new city and helped stop the proposed Spadina Expressway. A frequent theme of her work was to ask whether we are building cities for people or for cars.

The Jane’s Walk in Davisville Village is designed to help you enjoy parts of neighbourhood. Our tour will last about 90 minutes and we will wind our way through our village … both past and present.

Mark your calendars! Important community consultation on January 20, 2021.

The hugely busy Davisville area is seeing another development proposal, this time at 185 Balliol. Come to a virtual community consultation on January 20, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. to learn more.     185 Balliol Public Notice (002)
