SAHRA 2019 Membership Drive
Please support our efforts at keeping this neighbourhood great by sending in your membership contribution.
We have on-line payment capability on our website or you can mail a cheque to the SAHRA post office box (1500 Avenue Road, PO Box 1373, Toronto, ON M5H 0A1) or drop it off at 118 or 123 Felbrigg Avenue.
If you wish to contribute by cheque, please download and complete this 2019 Membership Form to accompany your cheque.
If you wish to contribute via PayPal or a credit/debit card, please click on the Membership button.
SAHRA will never disclose your personal information to any third party.
It is very important to us to collect Email Addresses from our member, as the preferred means of communication. Email is a fast and cost-effective way for us to let you know about upcoming neighbourhood events, special presentations, social events, public forums organized by our Councillor, etc.
The South Armour Heights Residents’ Association (SAHRA) was created to act as an advocate for the residents of SAHRA, to protect our neighbourhood from inappropriate development, to promote safety and security in the neighbourhood and to enhance the environment and social life in our community.
Your membership contributions and donations fund SAHRA activities including:
- Addressing Committee of Adjustment (CofA), North York Community Council (NYCC), Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) and Toronto Local Advisory Body (TLAB) notices and hearings (in 2018 there were 13 CoA applications in our area and we dealt with 1 OMB Appeal and 2 TLAB Appeals)
- Representing SAHRA interests at FoNTRA (Federation of North Toronto Residents’ Associations) meetings
- Communicating with the North York Community Council, City Council, City Officials/ Departments and our Councillor on Neighbourhood issues
- Updating residents on local issues via E-blasts, Newsletters and the website
- Hosting community-building events
- Holding regular SAHRA meetings and the Annual Meeting (April)
All the above takes time, effort and money. If you have thoughts about how we can improve, please contact us. If you would like to help, we would love to hear from you.
We need your financial support ! Membership contributions increased last year (Thank You) but contributions by only 12% of our population still makes it difficult to maintain our current level of activity. We are very frugal but there are expenses for newsletters, our website, office expenses, insurance and events. We also need funds to engage planners and lawyers to deal with Committee of Adjustment, TLAB and OMB applications/appeals. In 2016, we used reserve funds for the OMB hearing for 1912-1914 Avenue Road. In 2017, we again had to use reserve funds to deal with the TLAB Appeal to maintain the by-law that only allows 2-storey homes in our neighbourhood. In 2018, we had to use reserve funds again to deal with the 250 Lawrence Ave West OMB Appeal as well as a second 3-storey TLAB Appeal.
