Damaged Street Furniture

Less than 6 months after our brand new benches, chairs and planters were finally installed throughout the village, several pieces of street furniture were damaged beyond repair by a careless sidewalk snowplow operator.

A claims process has begun to receive compensation to cover the damage - two benches will need to be replaced and one planter repaired by replacing one half section (near Green P lot). Unfortunately, these things take much longer than we'd like. 

Thank you for your patience in the meantime.

Public parklet space in the heart of the Village

The main goal of the FHV BIA streetscape masterplan has been to make the village an even more appealing place to spend time. We've been working towards this by focussing on projects that improve walkability and bikeability, expanding and improving the public realm, adding more greenspace and parking, and generally aiming to make the Village more ‘villagey’. So, in addition to our new benches and planters, the BIA, in partnership with the City, will be adding a seasonal, on-street public parklet in the centre of the Village on the east side of Spadina Rd. just north of Lonsdale.
