City of Toronto Invites the Public to Attend Meetings to Review Community Council Boundaries
  
The City of Toronto has started a process to establish new community councils
for the next term of City Council, based on the new 44 wards, for the municipal
election to be held in November 2000.

The City is seeking public input on how to re-establish the community councils,
including the number of community councils and what wards they include. City
staff will be hosting public meetings on May 1, 4, 8, and 15, 2000, to receive
public input.

Monday, May 1, 2000 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at:
- York Civic Centre, Community Council Chamber
- Scarborough Civic Centre, Community Council Chamber

Thursday, May 4, 2000 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at:
- East York Civic Centre, Community Council Chamber
- Etobicoke Olympium (590 Rathburn Road)

Monday, May 8, 2000 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at:
- Toronto City Hall, Council Chamber

Monday, May 15, 2000 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at:
- North York Civic Centre, Community Council Chamber

A public comment form is available from the City to receive proposals for
establishing new community councils. Based on the public feedback and guiding
principles adopted by City Council, community council options will be developed
by staff for consideration by the City's Administration Committee in June 2000.

City Council's action is in response to Bill 25, the Fewer Municipal
Politicians Act, 1999. This Act amends the City of Toronto Act, 1997 by
dissolving the existing 6 community councils effective December 1, 2000. The
Act allows the City to re-establish community councils based on the new 44
wards.
