Most of these public counter services have been temporarily housed at 1652

Civic Centre. Joining them on June 21 will be the Parking Tags Operations -
West office that has been situated at 970 Lawrence Avenue West, providing
services that include parking ticket information/payments, "First Appearance",
and responding to related inquiries.

At the same time as these public counter services move to York Civic Centre,
two other counter services temporarily provided at 1652 Keele Street will move
to 2 Civic Centre Court, located at the south east corner of Burnhamthorpe and
The West Mall adjacent to the Etobicoke Civic Centre:

The Provincial Offences Court - Toronto West will move from 2265 Keele Street
to its new home at York Civic Centre, where seven courtrooms will be available
for POA trials as of August 4, 2004. In addition, other POA Court
administrative services will be available at York Civic Centre, including POA
fine payments, completing appeal documents and obtaining other forms for
applying for extensions and re-opening cases. The POA functions were
transferred to the City of Toronto by the Province of Ontario in 2002.

York Civic Centre is located at 2700 Eglinton Avenue West, one block west of
Keele Street on the north side. Public parking is available in an adjacent lot.

It is expected that when fully operational in August, York Civic Centre will be
one of the most high traffic civic centres in the City of Toronto.
