Construction starting next week at the former Sherwood Forest School site

Construction of the new housing on the portion of the site outlined in red will be starting next week. The first part of the work is always the most significant with dump trucks and excavators on site. The developer is meeting with his contractor next week to sort out details including which streets trucks will be using (the shortest route is usually the least disruptive) and the timing of the various parts of the project. We have also asked for a contact number so that anyone with concerns can get in touch. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Levin by Tuesday and he will pass them along right away so the developer has them in time for his meeting with his contractor.

Reminder of bus service changes

Just a reminder of bus service changes in our area starting September 1.

Service through the Orchard Park neighbourhood will be removed, leaving a small section of the area more than 400m to transit stop.

Route 9 changes will serve the intersection of Wonderland and Fanshawe Park Roads and provide two-way service along Limberlost.

Route 9 will no longer be interlined with Route 6 in the evenings and will operate to downtown during all time periods.

Route 31 will be modified to operate along Aldersbrook Road to the Hyde Park Power Centre. The route will now operate as a stand-alone route, no longer interlined with Route 19 and 32
