Creating a place for people in Toronto

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 'Creating a place for people in Toronto' consultation. The engagement summary has now been released.

The first phase of this project was designed for the community to provide ideas and suggestions on how to make the foreshore area of Toronto a better place for people to enjoy, as well as exploring the opportunities for how the foreshore integrates with the proposed mixed-use development on Council-owned land at 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row.

Council undertook a multi-faceted engagement strategy for this project to inform and consult with residents, workers, businesses and visitors to ensure they had the opportunities to provide feedback.

Council would also like to acknowledge the tabling of a petition, from the Toronto Foreshore Protection Group, at the Council meeting on 29 October. This petition is not referenced in the engagement summary, as it was received after this phase of the consultation had closed.

    Manager Integrated Planning, Wes Hain, said Council wants to make the Toronto Foreshore a more inviting place for people by improving access and amenities and creating enticing destination points along the waterfront precinct fromGoffet Park to Bath Street.

    “This initial round of consultation is the first of a number of opportunities the community will have to tell us what sort of recreational infrastructure, amenities and environment they would like to see on the Toronto Foreshore,” Mr Hain said.

    “We are looking to revitalise underused areas of waterfront space, enhancing public access and amenities all along the extended foreshore precinct.

    “This is a great opportunity to realise the potential of one of our City’s most picturesque town centres and waterfront areas.”

    The Toronto Foreshore was identified as a priority for improvement in the Toronto Development Contributions Plan. Council has about $9 million in developer contributions to contribute to the project.

    As part of the consultation, the community will also have the chance to have a say on how the mixed-use commercial development proposed for a vacant site at 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row integrates with the foreshore precinct.

    Council determined in April to moved forward with the preparation of a design and development application for a medium-density building comprising a mix of residential, tourist and commercial space on the Council-owned Bath Street site.
