ABOUT THE PROJECT
The results are in! You spoke, we listened. As a result of engagement with your community, you helped us build a vision for Thorncliffe/Greenview:
THORNCLIFFE/GREENVIEW VALUES SAFETY, HAVING ACTIVITIES FOR ALL, BEING CLEAN AND HAVING
A STRONG SENSE OF COMMUNITY FOR THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD.
Initiatives have been developed from ideas that we heard from community participants and the City staff they worked with. These ideas were developed to fit with the neighbourhood vision created by you and your neighbours. Some of those ideas are already getting started and are shown on the Initiatives in Progress list below.
Now, we want your help to prioritize the remaining 12 initiatives in the Provide your Input section below.
The City created This is my neighbourhood to fully engage with community residents to create clear, compelling community visions that will help guide the delivery of City programs, services and small-scale infrastructure improvements within participating neighbourhoods. This is my neighbourhood gives residents a voice and encourages them to take an active role in shaping the future of their neighbourhood.
This is my neighbourhood began in 2015 with a group of 14 inaugural communities. As part of the This is my neighbourhood program, The City partnered with the first group of neighbourhoods to deliver more than 100 programs, services and small-scale improvement projects that residents requested. Overall, This is my neighbourhood will take place in 28 neighbourhoods over four years from 2015 to 2018.

PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
Below you will see the 12 initiatives for Thorncliffe/Greenview. Each initiative has one question (a) to help us understand what you feel the impact of each initiative would be on the community. Then there are questions (b, c) about the same initiative asking about the details that City staff need to know if that initiative goes forward.
From July 28 to August 8 we asked for your preference on the vision statements. See below for results.
Pick the vision statement you think is best for Thorncliffe/Greenview.
The survey has concluded.
Thanks to everyone who provided input into the neighbourhood vision words. All the ideas you provided can be found in the What We Heard Report.
Residents can give their input until early December and then we'll put the results into a report and share it here by early January. The initiatives will begin implementation in 2018.
Stay tuned - we will need help from the community to make some of these initiatives happen.
