Yonge St North & Transportation Master Plan Meeting

Virtual Community Consultation Meeting

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.

Next week, please join City Planning staff to help determine the future of our neighbourhood. City planning staff want your feedback on the Yonge Street North Planning Study, and the Transportation Master Plan. Your voice is important to help the City develop policies for this changing area.

The objective of the Yonge Street North Planning Study is to develop a long-term vision for the area and to manage and guide the expected growth in the future, through the development of a Secondary Plan.

At the meeting next week, we would like your feedback on:

  1. The draft expanded boundary area which looks at extending the Secondary Plan boundary further east to Willowdale Avenue and further south to Centre Avenue; and

  2. Introducing low-scale building types into this area, which may include duplexes, triplexes, townhouses, semi-detached dwellings, and walk-up apartments.

The purpose of the Transportation Master Plan is to recommend transportation improvements to support the current and future populations anticipated for the Yonge Street North Study Area.

Next week, we would like your feedback on:

  1. Providing more connections, especially to make walking and cycling easier.

  2. Options to reduce the traffic impacts of new development.

  3. Reviewing parking requirements.

  4. Responding to opportunities with the future subway extension, including new pedestrian connections to the subway stations.
