Finding ways to help improve Cabbagetown

Stephen-Thomas Maciejowski, Executive Director, Cabbagetown BIA

Cabbagetown is filled with a wide variety of shops, restaurants and services listed on the BIA’s website www.cabbagetownTO.com. The Cabbagetown BIA encourages all residents and visitors to get to know the local business owners and to shop local in Cabbagetown. The 39th annual Cabbagetown Festival is a great time to do just this as businesses take to the street with special booths and offerings alongside world class bands, buskers and other forms of entertainment for two fun packed days.

 
In order to prepare for the festival the Cabbagetown BIA re-booted itself this spring with a new Executive Director in the office and a new volunteer executive board. Bill Renieris from the local Home Hardware is now the BIA’s chairman with Kim Alke of Spruce on Parliament as treasurer, Patty Junior of The Epicure Shop as Secretary and Tony Lafazanis, a local barrister, as Vice-Chairman. Other board members include Amy Czettisch of Red Box Creative, Carol Buss of Lennies Whole Foods, Daniel Megly of Daneil et Daniel, Frank Bernardo formerly of Bernglen Holdings, Nick Humphries of Nick and Hilary – Sage Real Estate Ltd., Tania Waldock of House On Parliament. While some of these volunteers are veterans of the board and others are new, they all belong to individuals who believe in our community and are interested in finding ways to help improve Cabbagetown so that it continues to be a sought after area to live, shop, work and play in!
