daNforth Village Laneway Revitalization

Since November 2017, The Laneway Project has been working with the Danforth Village Residents Association to revitalize the network of laneways in their neighbourhood near Danforth Ave and Main St.

Over the winter, residents prioritized new greening, lighting, murals and traffic control measures for the spaces. In September 2018 The Laneway Project facilitated the installation of 30 new planters and 20 new street art murals. By the end of the year, 20 new pedestrian-friendly, solar-powered and shielded lighting fixtures will also be installed in the spaces.

Thanks to Monica Wickeler and Bareket Kezwer for leading the mural process (with 20 other Toronto artists!), Sean Bergeron for lending us his considerable knowledge of permaculture, and Councillor McMahon for dedicating the Section 37 funding that has made this exciting transformation possible.
