The Rathnelly Area Residents Association (RARA) represents the residents of the geographic area of Macpherson Avenue on the south, to Poplar Plains Cresent on the north, to the west side of Avenue Road on the east, to the east side of Poplar Plains Road on the west.
The RARA executive members meet once a month to discuss matters of importance to the community and plan social events. Membership in RARA provides representation and access to information and support from the association. Together we work for the betterment and connection of all members of our neighbourhood. If you have questions or would like something to be added to the agenda for the next meeting, please feel free to reach out to any member of the executive (listed below).
Please note RARA does not weigh in on committee of adjustment matters. Please follow the city of Toronto processes if you have concerns related to development in the neighbourhood.
The Republic of Rathnelly is one of Toronto’s great historic neighbourhoods; a special island in the heart of the city where we care about each other and value neighbourliness, open-mindesness and a good party.
RARA strives to deliver value to our members by creating a platform for community connection focused on the following priorities:
- Engaging the whole community in inclusive & unexpected ways
- Supporting a communal environment that is a great place to grow up & where we take care of each other
- Taking Stewardship for our shared green spaces & our safety
- Representing our priorities to the city through political representatives at all levels
- Bringing the community together to have fun and celebrate our history
Long live the Republic!
