South Forest Hill Residents Association: call to action, petition & fundraising

In response to a development proposal that is out of scale with the rest of Forest Hill Village, the South Forest Hill Residents Association (SFHRA) has organised to join local city councillors, and planning staff in the rejection of the proposal.

More information and the 'Save our Village' petition can be found here.  

This issue has now moved on to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) and below is the recent update, and fundraising appeal, from the SFHRA.


"We now need your financial support!

McGregor Victorian Caroller return to the Village on Dec 10th & 17th!

We are pleased to once again welcome the McGregor Victorian Carollers to bring some holiday season cheer to the Village for a 3rd year!

Weather-permitting, you'll be able to enjoy their beautiful singing on both Saturday December 10th & 17th from 1 to 3pm throughout the village. Not only will they be singing on the four corners of Spadina & Lonsdale, they'll also be popping in to a shop or two to spread the cheer indoors.

Launch event was a great success!

Well that was fun! Both the Launch of the North Gateway Streetscape Project at Suydam Park, and a Laneway Naming Ceremony, were held on Sunday June 12th and a wonderful time was had by all in attendance.
