Last week, TCAT was pleased to release Complete Street Transformations in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region, a new book profiling recent street projects in the region that were redesigned to benefit people on foot, on bike, or on transit. This beautifully designed book provides evidence from before and after nine distinctly different Complete Street projects were completed.
The book was a joint project between TCAT, Dr. Raktim Mitra, Assistant Professor, School of Urban and Regional Planning at Ryerson University and Dr. Paul Hess, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto, with funding from the Government of Ontario through the Places to Grow Implementation Fund.
A launch event for the book is open to the general public. It will take place on Thursday May 5, 2016 from 6-7:30 pm. at Ryerson University, 105 Bond Street, Room 312, Toronto. Formal remarks, including a short presentation and panel discussion with the book’s authors and municipal professionals, are scheduled for one hour, followed by a half hour networking reception with light refreshments.
