Message from Paul Farish, Senior Planner, Strategic Initiatives, City Planning
On November 15th, our Midtown in Focus team will present the proposed update to the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan to City Council's Planning and Growth Management Committee. The report and proposed plan are now available on the City's website.
The proposed Secondary Plan is an important step forward in guiding the evolution of Midtown. The proposed plan addresses parkland needs, infrastructure priorities, affordable housing, walkable, beautiful streets, the location and scale of tall buildings, heritage considerations and much more. We will be organizing consultation events and activities in the months ahead to discuss the proposed policies and refinements in anticipation of a final recommended plan in the second quarter of 2018.
Members of the public are welcome to attend and depute at the November 15th session of the Planning and Growth Management Committee and submit comments electronically.
Thanks to all those who have contributed their insights and energy over the past two years and helped to shape the emerging plan.
