COMMUNITY YARD SALE

LPRO hosts an annual Community Yard Sale the first Saturday of June. This is a much anticipated event in our community where you can find a new home for your gently used items, find something special and meet with your neighbours. After a two-year hiatus due to Covid, our 2022 Community Yard Sale had a record turnout. See you again in 2023! 

aNNUAL RAVINE CLEAN-UP

For the past 20 years LPRO has organized the clean-up of the Chatsworth/Otter Creek Ravine as part of the City of Toronto’s Clean Up Days. The event, held on a City-designated Saturday in April, is a great opportunity to help keep our community sparkling and meet your neighbours. 

After a two-year hiatus due to Covid, our Annual Ravine Clean-Up resumed in 2022. Over 25 residents turned out and did a great job making our park space sparkle!

LPRO hosted a candidates’ meeting for the community on October 2, 2019 to help residents make a more informed choice in the 2019 federal election. This was a unique opportunity to meet the candidates and hear them articulate and defend their party’s platform. The event drew a large audience from LPRO’s catchment and the rest of the riding.

A 50 Questionnaire Handout was completed by Candidates prior to the Meeting and was distributed to attendees on the night of the event.

*LPRO, like many residents groups, does not endorse political parties or candidates. 

LPRO holds an Annual General Meeting every year, typically in March or April. Our AGM is open to the public however only current members of LPRO can vote.  Meetings are typically held in person, however the 2021 AGM was held virtually because of Covid. 

LPRO’s 2022 AGM was held on Tuesday March 8, 2022. The format was virtual again this year.  Speakers included Toronto’s Chief Planner, Gregg Lintern, talking about the future of the City, Kevin Rupasinghe from CycleTO with an update on Vision Zero, and Councillor Mike Colle, a regular guest speaker at our AGMs. For a copy of  Gregg Lintern and Kevin Rupasinghe’s presentations, click here: Creating A Livable City and Vision Zero in 2022
