Project Name: Yonge-Lawrence Village Mural Walk Project - Fairlawn Community Centre

Client: The City of Toronto
Neighbourhood Beautification Project

WARD 16 - Karen Stinz

Location: The laneway running north-south on the west side parallel to Yonge, from Deloraine to Bedford Park Avenues.

Project Description: Begin a phased series of Murals along the laneways of the Yonge-Lawrence retailers to deter graffiti and create a safe and beautiful environment for the neighbourhood to access.

Community Involvement: Many local groups are involved and the list keeps growing! Anne Rawson from The Fairlawn Neighbourhood Centre, Carol Knowlton-Dority Muralist Artist, Bridget McFarthing from the Delisle Youth Services, Wayne Pierce from 32 Division Crime Prevention, Carol Coiffe a Healthy Community Advisor and Bev Don from the Yonge-Lawrence Village BIA are working together to make this Mural a success.
