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

Online Webinar for CafeTO Questions

An online webinar for local operators is planned for Tuesday, March 2 at 9:30 a.m.

The webinar will review the program requirements and help answer any questions.
We will send out registration information for this at a later date.

Some of these improvements for this year are: 

  •  A clearer registration process, that starts sooner, as well as an updated guidebook that includes enhancements to accessibility requirements.
  • A more efficient CaféTO installation process, to begin helping approved businesses as soon as possible once winter is over and public health regulations permit outdoor dining.
  • Commitment to ensure more restaurants in Scarborough, Etobicoke and North York are ready to take advantage of opportunities for quick expansion of outdoor dining.
  • Development of comprehensive and safe traffic management plans that will help ensure the curb lane cafés are as safe as possible for people dining, employees and people using the road.
  • Allowing some owners/operators to build temporary platforms for curb lane café areas, where applicable.
  • Ensuring there is accessible furniture for public parklet areas.
