A request to redirect funds intended for a Scarborough pedestrian bridge to playground equipment instead was turned down at an April 5 city budget meeting. The proposal was made by Coun. Glenn De Baeremaeker when it was revealed the 2003 plans to build the 25-metre bridge had gone nowhere.
Scarborough Walk of Fame
The Scarborough Walk of Fame celebrates achievements of Scarborough residents, past and present, in the fields of sports, arts, entertainment, health, education and community. On May 12, the Walk of Fame inducts the class of 2011 with a public ceremony and induction dinner.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” Nelson Mandela once said. South African-born educator Vicki Bismilla, a 2011 inductee to the Scarborough Walk of Fame, has lived those words.
Two years and $62 million later, the newly revamped Scarborough Town Centre is ready for business and aims to make Scarborough residents proud to call the suburbs home.
Shoppers at Scarborough Town Centre will see a new ceiling and more escalators on Nov. 17 when most of a two-year, $62-million renovation is revealed.
