We were wearing two hats that night, as both the CRA and as supporters of the Cabbagetown Coalition – a grassroots group of Cabbagetown residents, businesses and residents associations, focused on addressing safety and security concerns related to the proposed drop-in and respite centre at 233 Carlton Street.
We have worked closely with the Cabbagetown Coalition to pull together this comprehensive report on our findings at this session.
We also picked up several useful background documents and brochures related to Downtown East Action Plan, Respite Services and 233 Carlton itself. These can all be accessed via links in the report.
The City has promised to get back to residents with their own report on their findings at the Forum, which will hopefully also detail what they plan to do to address all the concerns raised by residents. When we get a copy of this report we will be sure share it on the CRA web site.
If you were not able to attend and still wish to have your own voice heard directly, you can email the city’s engagement consultants for 233 Carlton Street – Joy Connelly and Joe Mihevc, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to cc email@example.com on such communications.
