This notice is to inform the Kensington Market community that the BIA is organizing a pedestrian lighting mock-up on 10th August 2022, Wednesday from 8:00 PM-midnight. Should it rain on the 10th of August, the mock-up will be held on Thursday, 11th August 2022, during the same time as before. Location: 64 Oxford St. (on the Augusta Ave side of the building).

 

The mock-up is intended to allow the community and the BIA to choose one of three lighting fixtures for the project. Pedestrian Lighting is a cost-shared project with the City of Toronto as part of Kensington Safe Streets.

 

The BIA is inviting Kensington Market residents and business members to come to be part of the decision-making process and help shape the market for years to come.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please email info@kensingtonmarket.to.

Please share the word with other Kensington Market business owners and residents.

Project Background

The City of Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan is focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.

 

State-of-good-repair work, including sewer and watermain replacements, road resurfacing, and road reconstruction, are scheduled in Kensington Market in 2022 and 2023. While the design work for 2022 has been finalized, the work in 2023 provides an opportunity to install additional safety improvements.

 

Project Goals

  1. Improve safety and accessibility for everyone
  2. Maintain access to all businesses, services and residences

We’ve paired with MPP Jessica Bell to find out what the market is most worried about as we approach the long winter months.

 

Please take our survey so we can better inform the official opposition on what the market needs to help us survive the pandemic this winter

 

MPP Jessica Bell Small Business Round Table

 

Tomorrow there will be a Small Business RoundTable, with guests MPP Catherine Fife, Official Opposition Critic for Economic Growth and Job Creation and John Kiru, Executive Director of TABIA (Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas).

 

We will be discussing the impact of the pandemic on local business, the governments’ response, and the ONDP’s Save Main Street plan.

 

We are losing our “Main Streets” which threatens our economy, our jobs, and the vibrancy of our neighbourhoods. That’s why the ONDP is calling for:

 

  • A ban on all evictions, lockouts or eviction threats by commercial landlords until the pandemic ends
  • A utility payment freeze for small and medium-sized businesses
  • A stand-alone emergency 75 per cent commercial rent subsidy, up to $10,000 per month
  • A fund for businesses that face historic barriers

 

 

The virtual gathering will be held on Thursday October 22nd

 

If you would like to join in the conversation please register here.

 

If you have questions in advance of the Round Table, please submit them by email to jbell-co@ndp.on.ca.

In the spring, as our communities began to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Official Opposition released a Saving Main Street plan. Last Friday, the working document was re-released, with updates for changed and changing conditions for small businesses and workers in our current context.
Saving Main Street: A Plan for Jobs and Financial Security for Working People offers a supportive and sustainable framework and includes:
  • Plan includes a ban on all commercial evictions,
  • a 75 per cent commercial rent subsidy,
  • sick days for all,
  • a fund to help businesses with safe-reopening costs or remote-work set-up costs,
  • more non-profit and public child care spaces for working parents,
  • and end to insurance gouging and insurance denials.
