Jane/Firgrove is one of three pilot communities in the
ReSet program. Through ReSet, an innovative approach to delivering capital repairs, the community will undergo quality repairs and residents will be engaged in building a community that fits their needs.
Toronto Community Housing has a dedicated team of staff and residents who are working together to address the economic and social challenges the community faces. Once Toronto Community Housing receives the funding it needs for its capital repair plan, the capital repair elements of ReSet will move forward.
In the meantime, Toronto Community Housing will be relocating tenants of the Dune Grassway and the Blue Grassway–Marsh Grassway blocks of townhomes beginning mid-2017. Engineering reports have confirmed these buildings are failing now and will soon be uninhabitable. The Turf Grassway–Dune Grassway block of townhomes in Firgrove Crescent, and the highrise and townhomes in Jane-Firgrove are remaining open.

Local design team
Each pilot community has a local design team made up of residents. The Jane/Firgrove design team will collect input from local residents on what repairs and programs are needed in the community, and work with the designers (architects and engineers) to develop plan options based on the community’s needs and budget. The plans will then be presented to all residents in the community.
