On April 27th 2017, the DUKE Heights BIA partnered with the Pembina Institute to launch the Neighborhood Freight Forum (NFF). The NFF brought together local business representatives and other local stakeholders to improve goods movement in our BIA.
With the support of experts and while engaging with City of Toronto staff, NFF members worked together to identify local goods movement issues and to come up with on-the-ground solutions to address them. With these solutions we hope to reduce costs for businesses and operators and reduce local greenhouse gas emissions all while increasing the attractiveness of the DUKE Heights BIA as a place to work and play.
The NFF will continue over the next 3 years with more meetings to work out and implement solutions to gridlock in the DUKE Heights BIA. If you are interested in participating in the next NFF please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
