  • Whereas the Fairwinds Community Association (FCA) boundaries include the communities of “Fairwinds, Fairwinds North, Fairwinds West, and Poole Creek Village” (Constitution Appendix A, Amended March 2017), and,
  • Whereas the FCA strives to be inclusive and representative of all residents within these boundaries. and,
  • Whereas the Poole Creek watercourse is the predominant natural feature in our neighbourhood.
  • Therefore be it resolved that the name of the Fairwinds Community Association be changed to the “Fairwinds-Poole Creek Community Association”.

RECAP: Grand opening of the Rosehill Expressway!

Autoroute Rosehill Expressway sign

Thanks to everyone who came out to today’s grand opening of the “Rosehill Expressway”.   With the closure of Johnwoods scheduled to happen on Wednesday, this was our tongue-in-cheek celebration to mark the opening of Rosehill to traffic – and with it, an influx of vehicles onto local streets like Rosehill, Santolina, Warmstone, Alon, Mika and others.

If you haven’t signed the traffic safety petition yet, email us at info@fairwindscommunity.com. (Our neighbour Mike is taking the signed petition to City Hall on Tuesday.)

Also, thank you to our neighbours in Bryanston Gate Community Neighbours and the many volunteers who helped with today’s event and the petition signing this week.

Here’s some media coverage of the event so far:

SUNDAY, NOV 12: Grand opening of the Rosehill Expressway

Join your neighbours from Fairwinds, Bryanston Gate and Poole Creek this Sunday (November 12) at noon for a “celebration” of sorts, to mark the upcoming opening of the Rosehill Expressway.   Bring your kids and meet at the corner of Johnwoods and Rosehill. We’ll have free hot chocolate & more surprises. Also watch for volunteers in the community this week who will be knocking on doors with a petition to sign.
