Arrow Road, 2010

Arrow Road2010 marked the completion of project work on Arrow Road. The project is a cost shared contract that fused city led transportation infrastructure money with Emery Village BIA/ City of Toronto Economic Development program. Completed in one year, the project is a good example of the city working together with the business community through its BIA. The original city plan called for the cyclical replacement of aging water lines and connections, road re-surfacing and curb repair. Through the support of Ward 7 Councillor George Mammoliti, the scope of work was expanded to include the BIA Streetscape design, features and amenities. These include numerous flag poles, distinct signage and markers, TTC shelter improvements, benches, median and free standing flower boxes, hanging plants, plantings and landscaping, street and accent lighting among other signature design features. The project was completed in one year and on budget. The results have garnered praise from business owners, residents and commuters alike who enjoy the new ambience, and safety.

In addition, we are in the midst of project development work along Sheppard Avenue. Here again, the BIA is joining the city’s transportation department and their resurfacing project along with the development resources from Lindvest Properties (Westshep Community), to upgrade intersections at Rivalda and Sheppard Avenue and the gateway entrance into the nascent residential and commercial community taking shape on the south side at Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue. This project will effectively tie together our original project at Weston and Sheppard Avenue with the recently completed intersection treatment at Arrow Road and Sheppard Avenue.
