At the second annual TABIA (Toronto Association of BIAs) Awards Night, on November 13, the Roncesvalles Village BIA received two awards.
Roncesvalles Village was nominated for a “Round of Applause” award by the Village of Islington BIA for its work with RoncyWorks, a community group dedicated to maintaining a clean and beautiful street. The Village of Islington BIA, in consultation with the Roncesvalles Village BIA and RoncyWorks, was inspired to institute a volunteer program of its own.
Michael Comstock was a long-time advocate for his neighbourhood of St. Lawrence Market and served as president of TABIA until April 2012. Michael passed away in September, and to honour his memory, TABIA established the Michael Comstock Community Builder Award.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the first recipient of the Michael Comstock Community Builder Award is our own Andrew Chomentowski, long-time chair of our Marketing and Promotions Committee and now Chair Emeritus of the Roncesvalles Village BIA.
