When the Snow Flies
Before the first big snowfall graces
Toronto, the Annex Residents’ Association (ARA) wishes to remind everyone to
clear their sidewalks. It makes a big difference for young and old – for parents
with strollers and residents who have mobility challenges.
For seniors and those with disabilities,
the City of Toronto makes it a lot easier to deal with the snow. The City will
clear city sidewalks outside their property for free. Just download the form and mail it in.
As 2018 ends, and 2019 begins, the ARA wishes all of the residents
of the Annex a Happy Holiday.
