Cabbagetown South Safety Walk Update

Update:  The evening of January 20, 2019 the CSRA board, Councilor Kristyn Wong-Tam as well as representatives from 51 Division, hydro, traffic and other service providers in the area, participated in a safety walk through our community’s streets and alleyways.

The goal was to identify and highlight areas where safety and security are a concern.  Increased lighting, alley repaving and areas where greater patrols are needed were all raised.

It was a productive walk and it was great to see everyone collectively working together to make our community safer for all residents.

Our Progress – as of July 25, 2019
