CityPlace Janes Walk

CityPlace Discovery Walk – Living & Thinking Vertical

Thanks to everyone who participated in the CityPlace Jane’s Walk in the CityPlace Community on Saturday, May 5th. Inspired by reknown urbanist Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walk is a series of walking tours designed for individuals to better understand the cities in which they live, work, or play.

Our Janes Walk was themed “CityPlace Discovery Walk – Living & Thinking Vertical”. The event looked at many aspects of this vibrant high rise vertical community and future possibilities for a family friendly downtown neighbourhood

Thanks to the CityPlace Jane’s Walk co-leads, Danielle Culp, Pegah Abhari, Vickey Simovic-Jankovic, Kumail Raza and many other community members who joined the walk.

Thanks also to Jane’s Walk staff Erin Kang and Alia Scanlon for promotional support of the event.


Halloween Safety


Article Source:

Thousands of children will be out trick or treating and to help keep them safe, parents are encouraged to remind their children to follow the rules of the road:

  • Always walk — do not run from house to house
  • Use costumes with bright fabrics or reflective tape or carry a flashlight to ensure you can be seen at all times
  • Walk on sidewalks and not on the street
  • If a sidewalk is unavailable, walk on the left side of the street facing traffic
  • Review all appropriate trick-or-treating safety precautions, including pedestrian/traffic safety rules prior to your trick-or-treating adventure.

Drivers beware! Watch out for the goblins, witches and ghouls! Children are excited about Halloween and may forget safety rules. When driving in residential areas, remember to follow these safety precautions:

  • Be alert, slow down and watch out for trick-or-treaters
  • Avoid any and all distractions
  • Yield to crossing pedestrians, especially when turning
  • Always keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
