TORONTO, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - It has been a busy winter in the Baby Point Gates BIA one of the city's newest and smallest BIAs. We have 3 announcements of interest to residents of the City of Toronto.
On June 15th we will be hosting our very first sidewalk sale - complete with street entertainment including face painters, magician, balloon artist, a roaming band, and a classic fire truck. On the culinary side several of the areas restaurants will be participating with outdoor food service ranging from organic chocolate, to pub fare and an evening oyster shack at 5pm. And of course, what would a sidewalk sale be without a sale! You can expect everything from kitchenware, women's fashion, and hardware to be on display alongside health and lifestyle services. For more information on this event please visit our website (www.babypointgates.ca).
We are also pleased to announce that our parking committee has been successful in convincing City Council to change parking by-laws (as indicated by their recent vote) for the east side of Jane St and both sides of Annette St. in the BIA. While the changes are modest, they will make a few optimizations that will increase our parking capacity for short term visitors.
The parking change comes just in time as in the last several months we've had 5 new businesses move into the BIA. Every month the diversity of our retail community continues to grow, and with it the attractiveness to shoppers and other new business (3 more new stores will be opening up shortly).
