Summer in Centennial!

On May 5, Toronto City Council voted in support of a new fluidized bed as the preferred option for biosolids management at the Highland Creek Treatment Plant. CCRA was one of five local community associations that submitted a joint deputation to Toronto City Council supporting this option. Congratulations to Frank Moir and Allen Elias, the tireless movers and shakers featured on page one for their community engagement efforts regarding the biosolids management Environmental Assessment. A big thanks to Kyle Yin, our CCRA Conservation Chair, for keeping us informed about the process.

There is lots to do this month in Centennial! CCRA is proud to co-sponsor the Annual Highland Creek Heritage Festival on June 18. Watch for CCRA in the parade! The festival also includes a children’s zone, food and entertainment to appeal to all ages. I hope you’ll also explore the great shops in the Highland Creek Village during the Festival.

CCRA is also pleased to co-sponsor the Port Union Waterfront Festival on June 25, 11:00 a.m.–3;00 p.m. in the Port Union Village Common. The event includes free carnival rides, mini-motorcycles, firefighter’s bouncer and games, entertainment and a community BBQ. You can learn more at www.waterfrontpark.ca. The event also features a 5K run/walk and 10K run. To register visit www.runforthelions.ca.
