On Tuesday, September 17, Toronto Planning is holding a community consultation relating to phases three to five of the Regent Park Revitalization. Revisions to these phases were first proposed in the spring, and this is the second opportunity local residents will have to review the plan and share their thoughts.

On Wednesday, September 18, Councillor Pam McConnell is holding a town hall on the municipal budget. Held before the launch of the city budget for the first time, the meeting will stand as a great opportunity to give your two cents on about $10 billion in annual city spending. The town hall will take place at the Regent Park Presentation Centre (500 Dundas Street) between 6:30 and 9 p.m. Councillor McConnell’s website has the details.

Our friends at the Alumnae Theatre debut their fall season with their production of THE UNDERPANTS this Friday, September 20. The show runs until October 5.

Tickets are regularly $20, with special $10 shows on Wednesday and PWYC on Sunday. Find the details online.
