Fuzzy Boundaries Meeting Tonight

From the mailing list:

We are a small but growing community group hoping to find an official name for our neighbourhood. We call ourselves fuzzy because our boundaries are intentionally undefined. We want to be as inclusive as possible, but very roughly we think of our community as stretching from Davenport to the base of Perth Avenue, and filling in the area between the train tracks that run east of Dundas and west of Lansdowne. Our mission to name this orphaned zone has the support of Councillor Adam Giambrone, and our group includes members from Dig IN, the South Junction Triangle Residents Association, the Rankin Crescent Community Garden, Perth Avenue Co-Op, and the Perth Avenue Park Community Festival.


Some local residents have formed a group called Fuzzy Boundaries to initiate a naming process for the area. You are invited to attend a lively discussion about how we define our neighbourhood on Wednesday, May 13 at 7p.m. at the Perth Avenue Housing Cooperative (120 Perth). Local history buff Michael Monastyrskyj will show some old photos, and Urban Planner Beate Bowron will speak about neighbourhood identities. A Q&A will follow. All are welcome to attend this free event.
