Corktown, Toronto eNewsletter for the week of February 1, 2016
AGM TIME: It’s that time of year again. This Tuesday, February 2 — yes, Groundhog Day — is the Corktown Residents & Business Association Annual General Meeting (AGM). It will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at Little Trinity Church Annex (King, just east of Parliament).
All Corktowners — new and old — are encouraged to attend. It’s your opportunity to vote for the Board of Directors for 2016.
We’ll also be considering changes to the board bylaws to allow board members to serve five consecutive terms. Currently, board members are limited to three consecutive terms. You can read about the proposed changes here.
There will be your standard flurry of community updates, as well. Don’t miss it!
CHERRY STREET CLOSURE: Waterfront Toronto has sent us this construction notice regarding a local road closure. The Northbound lane of Cherry Street from Lake Shore Boulevard to the rail overpass will be closed on Wednesday, February 3. The closure is expected to last two weeks. You can read the notice below.
EXPERT ESPRESSO: Corktown’s own Sumach Espresso made NOW Toronto’s list of notable new coffee shops. It’s a great spot to stop for your caffeine fix.
DOWNTOWN RELIEF LINE: A Corktown subway stop? According to a report by the Globe & Mail’s Oliver Moore, the city planning department is recommending that the oft-discussed downtown relief subway line run along Queen East, with a station proposed for Queen & Sumach. Obviously this is a long, long way from actual construction, but an interesting development, for sure.
