#DestinationDanforth & ActiveTO

On May 28, 2020 Council approved a proposal for a number of new bikeway and complete street installations across the City, called ActiveTO. The projects were a response to the imminent need for: Better use of the right of way in the context of Covid-19; Support for local businesses by improving access options, and creating an environment to support expanded patios; Support for physical distancing for walking and cycling; Alternatives for people who are not comfortable taking transit.

In order to deliver a pandemic-responsive design, staff had to act quickly and focus detailed design engagement efforts on businesses, predominantly through BIAs.

Fast track to today, we have our beautiful comprehensive #DestinationDanforth system.

The Sunflower Project

In celebration of BD Beats, BIA business member @cobsdanforth (156 Danforth Ave.) will be spearheading ‘The Sunflower Project’ , a fundraiser in support of a Ukrainian family’s recent resettlement in Toronto. Vibrant solar powered sunflowers (the official flower of Ukraine) will be available beginning at noon on June 4 with proceeds going directly to the family. A group of volunteer youth will be selling the sunflowers for a minimum donation of $20 each at the BIA CafeTO parkette located in the curb lane enclosure in front of COBS. The goal is to sell one hundred sunflowers by 3pm. For those unable to attend but wishing to make a donation, please click below
