The City of Toronto, City Planning Division and the
consulting firm of Brook Mcllroy Planning & Urban Design/Pace
Architects invite you to participate in a Design Workshop from 1:00
p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, as part of the Bloor
Dundas ‘Avenue’ Study.
"The City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)
are examining ways to significantly improve transit service on Finch
Avenue West between Yonge Street and the Highway 27 area.
The Etobicoke-Finch West LRT is one component of the Transit
City Light Rail Plan - a proposed network of seven new light rail lines
that would provide comfortable, efficient rapid transit throughout
"Waterfront Toronto, the City of Toronto and the Toronto
Transit Commission are developing a plan to revitalize the Lower Don
Lands and create a vibrant, mixed use, sustainable community that
embraces and respects a newly naturalized and flood-protected mouth of
the Don River.
As mentioned in last week's TCAT News e-Bulletin, there is an important Community Council meeting coming up next Monday. The Toronto Urban Renewal Network (TURN) is working hard to get as many pedestrians and cyclists - especially those living in Ward 13 - out to speak in favour of a redesign for this dangerous intersection to more safely accommodate active transportation.
Talk around an improved streetscape for Roncesvalles has been underway
for quite some time. Some of the elements included in the preliminary
designs have triggered the Environmental Assessment Process. This means
more opportunity for residents to become involved in the planning
process and to provide input on how the street will be redesigned.
The first public open house for the EA will take place next Wednesday.
For those living in Ward 21
or those interested in plans for improving the cycling environment in
this ward, you are invited to attend the first ward chapter meeting of
the Toronto Cyclists Union, co-hosted by the local City Councillor Joe Mihevc.
