FODE's Taylor Massey Project



Taylor Massey Creek, a significantly degraded watercourse running through the western edge of Scarborough and the heart of East York, is one of the priorities under the City's 25-year, $1B Wet Weather Flow Master Plan, with an estimated $60-100M to be spent along the Creek 2008-2012.

FODE's Taylor Massey Project - the TMP - seeks both to articulate a strategic framework for the regeneration of the Creek and to engage the local community in its regeneration.


FODE will deliver the Project by:

  • Maintaining the information on this website

  • Working with government agencies to effect meaningful watershed improvements

  • Distributing FODE information to selected neighbourhoods backing onto the Creek

  • Coordinating public programs throughout the watercourse, and

  • Seeking to establish or align with existing community organizations as "Reach Stewardship Groups": groups of local residents who want to be involved in the protection and regeneration of the watershed.
