We hope you'll join us on July 5 for a community visioning workshop and fundraiser at our #Ossington
pilot project site (look out for a Bloordale workshop in August!)
Help identify where we should be placing the new light fixtures! Plus, enjoy food, drink, music, mural painting, idea boards, alley walks and some extra laneway fun thanks to Ossington's Academy of Lions
and parlour salon
NOTE: This is a free visioning session; however, project donations via tickets are welcome.
Lighting is essential to the character, usability and around-the-clock safety of Toronto’s laneways. Currently, lighting in our laneways is designed only for vehicles, and does not meet the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. But together we can change that!
is a demonstration project that will set a precedent for the privately-led provision of pedestrian-friendly laneway lighting in Toronto. The project will add shielded LED lighting fixtures to supplement the existing vehicular-focused lighting in two demonstration laneways in Ossington and Bloordale, already heavily used by pedestrians—transforming them into safe, vibrant and appealing public places. It is supported by local BIAs, CAs, Councillors, Toronto Hydro, and the leadership of relevant City divisions.
