North York honours local citizen

North York will honour a longtime resident and community booster, renaming a boccie park after him.

North York Community Council met Tuesday morning at 9:30. In addition to addressing bylaws and proposals, the 11 councillors present decided to recognize a member of the community. Coun. Maria Augimeri (Ward 9), who chaired the meeting, moved that Ridge Park, a small park along Ridge Road, be renamed Luigi Boni Boccie Courts.

Boni is a longtime resident of the Downsview Avenue area and was instrumental in raising funds for the lighting of the bocce courts at Ridge Park. Boni is an active member of the Roding Seniors Club, which gathers regularly at the city’s‎ Roding Community Centre.

The motion renaming the facility Luigi Boni Boccie Courts was adopted.

Another issue debated was a proposal to deny the installation of an all-way stop control at the intersection of Delhi and Northmount avenues (Ward 10), as well as the intersection of Armour Boulevard and Romney Road (Ward 10). The Transportation Services stated that existing traffic and roadway conditions do not demand an all-way stop control at these intersections.

The next North York Community Council meeting is scheduled for May 12, 2015.
