Mark Taylor’s June Newsletter

Dear Neighbours,

This past month was a busy one! It kicked off with my 4th Annual Mother’s Day Tea. I was pleased to welcome, and I want to say thank-you, to the over 200 guests who attended. If you didn’t make it this year, I hope to see you next year!

Woodroffe Traffic:

My office was pleased to host a traffic meeting for the residents of Woodroffe North, Woodpark and the Carlingwood area. City staff were on hand to answer questions and provide information on the City’s short term and long term plan for local traffic. You can find a copy of the presentation at www.BayWardLive. ca . Local traffic is everyone’s responsibility, we should all be extra careful and take extra time when driving through our neighbourhoods and watch for children playing.

3 Year Anniversary:

We celebrated the anniversary of the opening of Bay Ward’s first Community Office. Over the past three years the office has assisted thousands of residents and allowed them the opportunity to seek assistance about City services closer to home. The office is located in the Foster Farm Community Centre at 1065 Ramsey Crescent.

Community Cup 2014:

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of The Community Cup and I am excited that for the first time Bay Ward will be represented! The Community Cup prides itself on building welcoming communities and making new connections. This year’s Community Cup is taking place on June 28th in Brewer Park. To kick things off, kids from Accora Village, Britannia Woods and Michele Heights will be participating in a pep rally. The pep rally is being held on June 20th in Bayshore Park at 6:00pm. Come out and cheer on the Bay Ward kids. Everyone is welcome.

Splash Pads, Beaches and Swimming Pools:

The City offers a variety of ways to stay cool during the summer months; splash pads were opened on May 16th, outdoor swimming pools open June 14th and area beaches will open on June 21st. For pool information visit , local beaches and for wading pools visit http://

Feel free to contact me at our City Hall or Community office. You can also visit our website to learn more about our community and what’s happening. In closing, I want to wish all fathers a Happy Father’s Day, Happy Canada Day to everyone and may you all have a safe and pleasant summer.
