Roncy Redesign Ratification

At the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) meeting this morning, councillors debated the Roncesvalles revitalization project that has been under discussion in that community for the last while. (By some counts, the conversation has lasted at least five years.) The proposal calls for curb bump-outs and transit platforms, in the form of sidewalk extensions, at several points along the avenue. Though the environmental assessment of the streetscape plan has been a matter of some controversy within the community it was unanimously endorsed in today’s vote, with all four members of PWIC present at the time (Councillors Carroll, Giambrone, Palacio, and Perks) speaking in its favour.
