Old East Village Community Association London, Ontario January 9, 2011

Road traffic, problem properties

February date for open meeting
Plans for easing traffic issues and dealing with problem properties will be unveiled at an open meeting on February 22, from 7 to 9 pm. The meeting will take place at the offices of the Old East Village Business Improvement Area, located where King swings north onto Ontario (see map, page 5). All residents of the Village are welcome to attend and to speak. The proposals were developed by committees of the Old East Village Community Association. The traffic committee, headed by Karen Wells, will outline a series of low-cost measures to urge on City Hall, to discourage speeding and the use of Village streets as shortcuts. Under Steve Duncan, the committee on problem properties – those where illicit activity is suspected, bringing unwanted traffic and the threat of violence to the Village – has developed a multi-level approach. A key feature is resources that householders can use to gather information that the committee can, when all else fails, take up with the police.

McCormick consultation January 26
The community gets a chance in January to share in “visioning” the future of the under-used industrial lands known as the McCormick Area, from Quebec to Ashland and from Dundas to the railway tracks above Elias. It comes at an open meeting called by City planners for January 26, from 6:30 to 9 pm at the offices of the Old East Village Business Improvement Area, located where King swings north onto Ontario (see map, page 5). Options for redevelopment include residential, industrial, commercial or a mix. A wealth of basic information about the area and its potential has been catalogued in the Phase 1 report of the City planning exercise, and it can be found online by Googling “McCormick Area Study London.”

BEAVERS, CUBS AND Scouts check out work on the Boyle Memorial Community Centre, where they will once again meet weekly after it reopens in the spring. Their guide, centre in the white parka, is Tracy Drenth who will have an office there as east area supervisor for the City’s Neighbourhood and Children’s Services. For more information on the East London Scouting program, go to 45hlondon.webs.com.

Boyle registration starts January 12
Registration for winter programs of the Boyle Activity Council – see page A inside – takes place Wednesday, January 12, 6-8 pm, at Lorne Avenue Public School. Registrations will also be accepted at the first session of each program.

Strengthening local business attracts more we’d like to see
by Greg Thompson President, Old East Village Community Association Welcome to our first newsletter of 2011. You’ll notice that it has more ads from local businesses than we’ve ever had before. Producing local newsletters is expensive, and we’re grateful to the merchants who’ve stepped up to the plate, allowing us to continue to celebrate the wonderful neighbourhood in which we live. bourhoods Initiative.

Our yesterdays

The ‘noble’ street names of Old East
Much of Old East is built on the farm pioneered in 1819 by Noble English and – no surprise – English Street takes its name from him. Elizabeth Street is named for his wife and Elias Street for one of their sons. Lorne Avenue and the stretch of Dufferin Avenue east of English Street were first named for other sons, Timothy and Franklin, but were renamed in the late 1800s in honour of governors general. To the east, Dorinda and Charlotte streets are named for daughters of onetime city clerk A.S. Abbott

New triplex meets rules, gets City OK
City Council has approved construction of a new, two-storey triplex at 664 Queens. Designed with an eye to heritage conservation guidelines, the new building had the support of both the London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH) and council’s Built and Natural Environment Committee. It replaces a triplex demolished last year after being found unsafe. Among other heritage features, the new triplex will have cladding and trim paint from a heritage palette and decorative detailing under the gable eaves. City heritage planner Don Menard makes himself available to advise property owners when they are planing alternations or new construction in the heritage conservation district, from Central to Queens and Elizabeth to Quebec. His email address is dmenard[at]london.ca.

THERE’S A NEW PIECE of public art in the Village, a 3.5-metre tall creation of Old East artist Daniel Castillo, commissioned to mark the 90th anniversary of Frederick Banting’s first step towards the discovery of insulin. The unveiling October 31 drew hundreds to Banting Square, on Adelaide just north of Dundas.

The 2011 season opens on the road with another match against MidMichigan in March. Home games are played at the Canada Building on the Western Fair grounds.

Silk Road Furniture, Palace Theatre

Improved Dundas facades earn awards
Improvements to their facades have earned Silk Road Furniture and the Palace Theatre awards from the Old East Village Business Improvement Area. Silk Road has recreated the heritage look of its location at 662 Dundas by facing the upper storeys with shingles. It is in a row of shingle-faced storefronts stretching west from Elizabeth. Next door to Silk Road, the Clay Art Centre is raising funds to restore its shingled façade to 1910 specifications. To see donation options, go to londonpottersguild. org and click on “London Clay Art Centre.” The Palace’s award acknowledges years of steady improvements, most recently last spring’s enclosure of the main entrance. Last fall the box office moved into roomier quarters at 712 Dundas while its old space is being turned into a rehearsal hall The Palace has also taken steps to make more effective use of its showcase windows enlisting students in the fashion merchandizing program at Fanshawe College to mount displays on coming attractions.

Still time to get a free tree for yard
The community association still has some free trees available for planting in private yards in the coming year. Email oevcapresident[at]gmail. com to apply for one. The re-forestation program is being carried out with $9,950 granted by the Urban League of London. Besides 20 or so trees for private yards, the plan calls for planting about 10 trees in public spaces like Queen’s Park and the grounds of the redeveloped Boyle Memorial Community Centre.

THERE WAS BIRTHDAY CAKE for patrons when the Western Fair Farmer’s Market marked its fourth anniversary. Opened in the Confederation Building, Dundas and Ontario, December 2, 2006, the market offers a full range of food on the first floor and on the second floor, crafts, collectibles and services.

Provincial minister, Knights sample Lorne Ave. snacks

Carson makes garden dreaming easy
by Heather Phillips ’Tis the season for garden dreaming! Our Carson Library at Dufferin and Quebec makes it easy with a rich bouquet of gardening books to choose from. Topics range from how to grow your own food in Raised Bed Vegetable Gardening Made Simple (call number 635 Non) to Designing with Perennials (712.6 Har). For those with kids there’s A Child’s Garden: 60 Ideas to Make Your Garden Come Alive for Children (712.6083 Dan), covering topics from forts and mazes to giant flowers, sculptures and berry patches. If space or time are an issue there are several helpful books about container gardening. My favourite visual feast is Design in the Garden: Inspiration, Planting, Structure (712.6 Bar), which is full of unusual sculptures and other lovely focal points. In a Canadian Garden (716 Eat) is a close second, with scores of refreshing pictures of private gardens created by ordinary gardeners across the country. This is only a taste of the nearly 40 garden books at Carson, never mind the 300-plus volumes in the whole library system. These can be delivered to the branch in a matter of days if you place a hold request.

At Carson

‘From sadness to reflection’
by Katherine Wallace Anyone who has ever navigated the breakdown of a relationship will be able to identify with Stacy Morrison’s autobiography Falling Apart in One Piece (call number 306.89092 Mor at the Carson Library). At first glance her life appears glamorous as a successful editor for the popular monthly women’s magazine Redbook.
BEHIND THE FACADE

However, behind this glossy facade, her world unravels when her spouse abruptly announces one evening he is done with their marriage. What unfolds for Stacy Morrison (and the reader) is a journey towards selfrealization and acceptance of her new life as a single woman and mother. Although the narrative is at times raw and painful, it is filled with honesty at a time of change. Falling Apart in One Piece is a poignant narrative that captures the author’s emotional catapult from grief and sadness to a place of recognition and reflection.

KAREN HERNANDEZ has taken over story-telling duties at the Carson Library. Storytime is a drop-in program Wednesdays, from 10:30 to 11 am.

New Block Parents on corridor
There are three new Business Block Parents on Dundas Street between Hewitt and Rectory – the East Village Coffeehouse at 785 Dundas, the Comic Book Collector at 779 Dundas and True Taco at 789 Dundas. Block parents provide a safe place for children to go while any needed help is summoned. Centretown Pawnbroker at 665 Dundas, between Lyle and Adelaide, and the Canadian Diabetes Association office at 448 Adelaide were already Business Block Parents.
