MISSISSAUGA, ON–(Marketwired – Nov 19, 2013) – Megola Inc. (OTC Pink: MGON) The urban experiment which aims to bring life to streets in downtown Toronto could follow up with trials on other main streets throughout the city.
The Church St. pilot features the installation of “parklets” — wood decks with planters and public seating — on parking spaces for a few blocks south of Wellesley. “This is a creative way to expand and animate the public realm without a major rebuild of the streets or sidewalks,” says Nancy Chater, of the Planning Partnership. “Parklets are appearing in North American cities. Church Street is leading the way for Toronto.”
The parklets, which get their name because they cover over street parking spaces, are being built with support Carpenters & Allied Workers Loc. 27, Vaughan, and others from the General Contractors section of the Toronto Construction Association. About a dozen apprentices and journeypersons from Loc. 27 are involved in the pre-assembly and field assembly. Home Depot is donating the lumber and materials. Megola Inc. is supplying its fire inhibitor to enhance safety.
Mike Yorke, president, Loc. 27, sees the pilot as an example of what main streets in downtown Toronto might consider doing for the 2015 Pan American Games. “Starting in 2014, we might start to see dozens of streets putting them (parklets) up.”
“It was a privilege to be a small part of this exciting project and we extend our congratulations to Mike Yorke, The Carpenters & Allied Workers, Local 27, and the City of Toronto in this experiment which succeeded in all areas of the plan,” said Magaly Bianchini, CEO of Megola Inc.
