TEMPORARY: No Parking on Woodbine Avenue

The City will be replacing the markings for individual parking spaces (transverse) on Woodbine Avenue with a solid line (longitudinal) between the traffic lane and parking lane. Pavement markings (guidance lines) will also be added to help alert drivers to the beginning of parking limits and parked cars. These adjustments will improve sight lines from side streets and driveways as well as any confusion about where parking starts and stops.


54/55 Division Community Consultation

Based on a recommendation in the Toronto Police Service’s Transformational Task Force report Action Plan, 54 Division and 55 Division are being consolidated. The City of Toronto’s Real Estate Services division, in partnership with the Toronto Police Service and City Planning, has conducted a search for suitable properties within the service areas of 54 Division and 55 Division. After evaluating properties through a set of criteria, three potential properties were chosen and Staff are holding a community consultation to hear from residents.

Community feedback is an important part of the site selection process. Staff are looking forward to working together to ensure that the new site is selected based on the vision and the needs of the Toronto Police Service and the communities they serve.
