Eleanor Park will be getting a new dome-shaped climbing structure this summer.
During two meetings to gather public input on the matter — one on Jan. 21 and the other on Feb. 10 — community members told city staffer David Andrews and Ward 9 councillor Keith Egli that the park needed something for seven- to 12-year-olds. Andrews suggested several rope-based climbing structures and the community members opted for something along the lines of the dome-shaped structures pictured above. Continue reading

Time to pull out your skates! A run of near-perfect ice-making weather means the two men creating the outdoor rinks behind Fisher Heights Community Place (31 Sutton Place) have both the puddle rink and the main boarded rink ready at the earliest date in recent memory.
“The conditions have been almost perfect,” says Pete Loveless, a neighbourhood retiree who’s helped create the rink for a number of years but who was on hiatus the last couple of years because of troubles with his knees. “Nice cold temperatures and snow, but not too much snow.” Continue reading

At the annual Ward 9 Volunteer Recognition Ceremony on November 28, Councillor Keith Egli honoured local residents Don Flynn & Margaret McPherson.
Don Flynn received the 2013 ‘Heart of the Community’ award. Over the past 38 years, Don has been a central figure with the St. Mark’s 72nd Scouting group, taking on a variety of key roles, from section Leader to committee Chair to Jamboree delegate. His quiet manner, determination, and leadership have had a positive influence on countless youth in our community. Don also contributes his efforts to FHACA, delivering newsletters and working on park clean-ups. His dedication to a cause is demonstrated again in his remarkable status as a 150+ blood donor. Congratulations, Don, and thank you!
Margaret McPherson received the 2013 ‘Senior Volunteer’ award for her steadfast dedication to betterment of the Fisher Heights and Skyline community. Over the past 30+ years, Margaret has provided dedicated volunteer service to Girl Guides of Canada, the Long Park Tennis Club, various health charities, and not least of all, the FHACA. Her innovative ideas, sage advice, and positive attitude have contributed greatly to the success of our Community Association. Whether though her active participation on the Board of Directors, or organizing a new activity for the Association, or beautifying the gardens that surround the community building, we have come to depend greatly on Margaret. A well-deserved honour!
Construction work on Meadowlands is coming to a close for the winter. The roadway has been paved, and as of Monday, November 25, the street was opened to two-way traffic. There may be occasional delays over the next few days as crews complete some further paving and line-painting. Final paving and landscaping will not occur until next spring.
This is the third, and final, phase of re-construction on Meadowlands Drive, from Inverness Avenue to Tiverton Drive. The work involves the replacement of two watermains, new storm and sanitary sewers, new service laterals to each property, replacement of the sidewalks and new street lighting.
Although largely welcome, the proposal to develop a commercial property at the corner of Burris Lane and Merivale Road has also raised concern in the community. Residents are particularly worried that the proposed parking lot access via Burris Lane instead of Merivale will needlessly increase traffic on our neighbourhood’s residential streets.
To underline these concerns, the board of directors of the Fisher Heights and Area Community Association has sent the following letter to Ward 9 Councillor Keith Egli and to Eric Giernalczyk, a representative of the company behind the proposed development. Continue reading
