Neighbourhood Name Tryouts
Name Suggestions Chalked from Dupont to Bloor in West Toronto Railpath Park
Who: Fuzzy Boundaries, a group of local residents spearheading a naming project in their West Toronto neighbourhood north of Roncesvalles and east of The Junction.
What: The inscription of all 185 name suggestions (to date) along a section of the West Toronto Railpath stretching from Dupont Street to Bloor Street.
Where: West Toronto Railpath
Wallace Avenue Foot Bridge Entrance
370 Wallace Avenue
When: Thursday, October 15, 2009
(On display all weekend or until the rain washes the slate clean)
Why: Engage the community in the naming project. Naming the neighbourhood gives us a collective identity – something to call our area as a whole – which in turn creates a sense of pride and ownership among residents. This unique display offers everyone a chance to see the names suggested so far and prompt additional ideas before the shortlist is drawn up in January.
