CITY STAFFERS ARE PREPARING THEIR REPORT

Remember back to last October where, as a group, we went before Toronto City Council Executive Committee to appeal our case for the lack of curling facilities in the west end of Toronto? .

City staffers are now preparing this report which will eventually go before the Toronto City Councillors who will vote YES to decide that we are entitled to a new curling facility and/or refurbished arena in the west end of Toronto.  Here is what they are sharing online: curling strategy



As part of Toronto’s 20-year Facilities Master Plan (FMP), City staff reviewed the existing curling facilities across the city to determine the need for new or improved facilities. At the time the FMP was developed, Toronto’s supply of City-owned curling ice was in line with or better than other Greater Toronto Area and large Canadian cities.

Based on the supply of City-owned curling ice and the availability of additional privately-owned curling facilities, no additional facilities were recommended.

In October 2019, as part of the approval of the FMP Implementation Strategy, City Council directed staff to monitor and assess trends and participation in curling. Closures of three private curling facilities, two in Toronto’s west end, have altered the context of curling in the city.

City staff are in the process of developing a Curling Strategy to:

  • Assess the trends and participation in curling
  • Consider the current context of curling ice availability
  • Identify opportunities to increase public interest in and access to the sport

Here's how you can help:

1.)  You can call Matt Bentley at 416-392-3949 Matt  is the Project Manager in charge of this project. Let him know in your own words about public interest in curling and the lack of ice in the west end of Toronto. 

2.) You can e-mail Matt Bentley at Matt.Bentley@toronto.ca

3.)  Email your city councillor https://www.toronto.ca/city-
government/council/members-of-council/
  Once your councillor receives your note they will forward the information to Parks & Rec, and eventually Matt will see it. Parks & Rec know we are going to come out full force on this, as they have advised councillors to expect our calls and emails.(hopefully we won't let them down)

4.)  Sign up to support our new curling facility at www.westendcurling.com.   Numbers count....numbers are votes and votes drive our city Councillors.  
              THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
