Danforth East Community Assoc.  For 10+ years, DECA has worked to build a stronger, more vibrant, walkable community, and to empower residents through community involvement.

Thanks very much to the dedicated City Council and School Board trustee candidates who came to our Farmers’ Market at East Lynn Park today! Come chat with them until 6pm, Thursday Oct. 10th!

Looking up to the sky through the roof of the TTC Danforth Garage and dreaming of this becoming a Wychwood Barns or Brick Works —— but in our ‘hood! Did you join our “Yes, in my Community!” Tour on Sunday? What did you think about this site? Flip through these photos and add your own of this 5.5 acre site. Change is coming. A study is currently underway to create a master plan to accommodate the needs of the three anchor tenants - TTC, the Toronto Police Service (TPS), and the Toronto Public Library - as well as the local community (all of us!) and to ensure this site becomes a catalyst for regeneration and place-making in this area of the city. We will post the date of the next community meeting on Our Blog and website. Find out more about the planning process on their website:

Teamwork! Preparing for the October 5 & 6 pop-up street makeover on Danforth Ave between Woodbine and Woodmount. Talking to the local businesses who were pretty excited to take part. This kind of urban street makeover has never happened in Toronto before. We are so grateful to @880citiesorg @betterblock for choosing #danfortheast and to our city councillors for supporting this innovative work. Last night’s community meeting at Hirut was jam packed and netted some terrific ideas! We’ll need lots of helping hands to make this happen. Let us know if you are interested!

Hey neighbours, what does a pop-up street makeover look like on Danforth? Come share your ideas over a free dinner this Thursday Sept. 6, 6:30-8:30pm at Hirut Restaurant, 2050 Danforth. 8 80 Cities is working with DECA, the BIA, and local city councillors on an exciting new project to demonstrate over one weekend, some innovative ideas for our Main St. They are even bringing in Better Block experts! We need your input - follow the link in our profile to rsvp and find out more. 🌳🌈🍧🌱👣☕️ #citybuilding #danfortheast #communitybuilding
