At the July meeting of City Council, John passed a motion in support of the upgrades of the basketball court at 415 Willowdale Avenue, an affordable housing complex known as Willowtree.
John’s motion directed half of the required funding to assist Toronto Community Housing (TCH) with the other half being provided by TCH.
These funds will be used to increase the size of the court, upgrade the poles and nets, provide new benches and fencing and make the site more accessible. Construction on the court is slated for completion this fall.
The funding for the Willowtree basketball court upgrades comes from Section 45 community benefits from development projects in the surrounding neighbourhood.
