Wow, such detail without all the fluff.
I don’t care if it happens like this but at least we know they have a plan.
It sounds promising.

Ah, the optimist! They have had what looked like plans/schedules for the last 3 years. This year they are actually implementing it and, though it has slipped a bit from Version 1, so far so good!

Just back from the Market - VERY busy with people actually shopping. The merchants seemed to be in shock :->

Imagine, opening your food selling business, on the single busiest food shopping day of the week, and people coming in to buy stuff; o_O

Who would have thunk it?

The Scull House Rowing place on Jarvis just south of King ( https://scullhouse.com/ ) seemed to have closed down several months ago - though their website appears to say it's still open. A few days ago the landlord posted a sign saying they owe over $164,000 in rent.

They have now ground off all the old asphalt on Church from King to Front and all lanes are in the process of being repaved. Naturally, the traffic is a total mess as drivers seem to be unable to read that the only exit from Front westbound is to turn north on Church - and Church is 90% blocked with paving. They have not, yet anyway, dealt with the excess old Toronto Hydro streetlight pole on Church (or the missing one) nor some of the sidewalk problems in that block but things ARE happening. The TTC crew are still pouring concrete around the tracks on Wellington going west to Scott. No real work between Scott & Yonge but i think this may be last block done as it may need to be closed 24/7 while work goes on.

A few of the trees in Berczy Park are looking kind of rough. Incessant dog pee?

I'd have to see the trees in question to venture a thoughtful guess.

Still, I would offer the following, dog pee rarely stresses a mature tree. Not impossible, but unlikely. It can and does effect small/young trees.

Right now, many trees in Toronto are beginning to suffer drought-stress. We need rain rather badly.

In July this year we had 43.6mm of rain; the norm is 74, 41% below normal; that follows June which was around 40mm, which is 1/2 of the normal 80mm.

Trees are thirsty!

Finally, some rain downtown! Every storm seems to have missed us recently.
