Fundraiser at the Village Playhouse



SARA’s annual fundraiser will be held in conjunction with BWVRA on the preview night of the Village Playhouse production of “Strictly Murder”, on Thursday Nov 6, 2014

STRICTLY MURDER by Brian Clemens     director: Harvey Levkoe
Conflicts that play out in a British couple’s rustic cottage in Provence may affect the direction of the greater conflict that is about to envelope Europe. We dare you to separate the good guys from the bad in this thrilling tale of murder and espionage set in 1939.

Tickets are $18/ea., and are available from the SARA Executive.
Don’t miss out on a fun evening in support of SARA!

2265 Durie & Save Our Village Campaign


A new condo has been proposed for 2265 Bloor Street West through to 2279 Bloor Street West. This stretch of property is on the south side of Bloor starting at Durie Street (across from Queen’s Pasta) and stretching to the flower shop just before the Bloor Street Meat Market.

It calls for an 8 story mixed use building comprised of 83 residential dwelling units, of which 19 replacement rental units are included, as well as 1200 square metres of non-residential office and retail floor area.

The developer has applied for a hearing at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

SARA is working with other west end ratepayers’ groups (Bloor West Residents, High Park Residents, Old Mill Community Association) to raise funds to oppose this development, which we consider out of character for Bloor West Village.

Help us to fight this application by donating your time or funds! (with the Donate button at right).
Thank you
