Thanks for attending our 2018 SERRA AGM

This year’s Annual General Meeting took pace on Monday May 14, 2018 at Greenwood College School. Over 100 residents came out to browse information booths, enjoy some refreshments, and hear guest speakers talk about matters related to high growth Midtown neighbourhoods such as ours.

We were very honoured to have Ms. Juanne Hemsol attend this year’s AGM. In 1965, Ms Hemsol was one of the founding members and the first president of The South Eglinton Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association (SERRA).

Guest speakers, Councillor Josh Matlow, TDSB Trustee Shelley Laskin, City of Toronto Senior Planner Paul Farsh, and City Hall reporter with the Toronto Star, Jennifer Pagliaro discussed a variety of current issues including how growth and development impacts communities if social services, school capacity, transit and other infrastructure cannot keep pace. Trustee Laskin’s update from the AGM can be found on this link SERRA AGM 2018-05-14.

There were nine information booths, on topics including tree protection, heritage, tall homes, waste management and recycling, Tree for Me and connected pathways (green initiatives) and tall mid-rise developments. Senior Planners Paul Farish and Cassidy Ritz were on hand to answer questions about Midtown In Focus. Greg Riussell and Ken Burford from the Toronto Aviation Noise Group (T.A.N.G.) were at the aviation noise booth offering information about flight paths over Davisville Village.

A special note of thanks to our volunteers and to the staff at Greenwood College School, who’s efforts contributed to making this year’s AGM a great success! Thanks also to the Solid Waste Management team for settting up an information booth about the City’s recycling program.
