Laneway Naming

Map of Para Laneway Walk

The Palmerston Area Residents’ Association (PARA) is helping the city of Toronto name the city owned lanes in the Palmerston Area. Laneway names not only honour our area’s history and former residents, it is also a critical tool for city services to identify locations requiring emergency support such as police and fire.
Below is a complete list of the names and laneways that the jury approved.
Alan Borovoy Lane
Beatrice Minden Lane
Joe Bertucci Lane
Huggins Family Lane
Morley Safer Lane
Jewish Folk Choir Lane
Via Dei Giardini Lane
Wayne and Shuster Lane
Sam Richardson Lane
Eliza Balmer Lane
The Laneways Committee is still in the process of collecting signatures from residents for Sam Richardson Lane and Eliza Balmer Lane
Eight Laneways will be unveiled on Sunday, June 23, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
The walk starts in front of Clinton St Junior Public School at 460 Manning Ave.
Descriptions of the laneway namesakes can be found in past issues of The PARA newsletter, which can be downloaded from Newsletters.
