City consults with public on quality of life and community services
Community and Neighbourhood Services -- The City of Toronto will hold a series
of public consultation meetings from October 15 to 22 to discuss the City's
proposed social development strategy.

Residents are invited to attend and give their opinion about the City's role in
maintaining the quality of life and community services. The social development
strategy will outline the City's social priorities and will guide its role in
providing services and supporting communities. Upon completion, the social
development strategy will be part of the City of Toronto's strategic plan.

"The meetings are an important opportunity to discuss the social challenges
facing Toronto and what the City can do to find solutions," says Councillor
Irene Jones, chair of the Social Development Strategy Steering Committee and
host of the Etobicoke community consultation. "The plan that results from these
consultations will give direction to future decisions about child care, public
health, recreation, libraries, long-term care and many other City services."

The meetings will be hosted by the councillors who chair the six community
councils and will be held at the following locations:
