    Do you think you need a pedestrian island to access the proposed lane connecting Victory to The Boulevard

    Victory asked 8 days ago

    Thanks for your question. The Master Plan is intended to show high level conceptual possibilities for Toronto’s foreshore. The details of the potential pedestrian improvements across Victory Parade are not known at this stage and are subject to further traffic analysis.

    Kind regards, The Project Team

    Where can boats be launched successfully in the Toronto area? And where can boat trailers park with the new proposal?

    Kathy Leslie asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question Kathy.

    Currently, the boat ramp at Wharf Road does not have the required level of supporting infrastructure in terms of appropriate parking spaces or space to add additional parking spaces. In accordance with the RMS guidelines, the boat ramp has a shortfall of approximately 28 vehicle and boat trailer parking spaces.
    The boat ramp in its current position also affects the function and amount of space dedicated to public uses and activity on the foreshore. The removal of the boat ramp will allow improvements to the playground, café and amenities block, creating a more inclusive space for locals and visitors.
    The boat ramp at the Toronto Lions Park located approximately 2kms away provides launching for vessels with a shallow draft only, due to the limited depth of the lake. Subject to further investigations and funding, there is an opportunity to formalise the car and trailer parking and install a pontoon at Lions Park.
    Boats requiring access to deeper water for launching and retrieval purposes are best to utilise the boat ramps located at Biriban Reserve at Coal Point or Bolton Point Park. Both ramps are approximately 4.5kms from the Toronto Foreshore.

    Regards,

    Luke

    I feel very strongly that we don’t end up with a generic Warner’s Bay look. We have recently moved here and love it. It does need more facilities but please don’t get carried away. I jja be recently restarted The Hub community gardens in town. It would be lovely to incorporate some gardens such as a sensory garden by the foreshore for older people. Not much mention of indigenous peoples or their culture. They could be included in a native garden. Please think outside the box. Look back but also forward. A big ask I know. Kind regards Georgie Macdonald

    Georgie asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your comments Georgie. The draft master plan draws on the values and distinct character of Toronto Foreshore and seeks to further enhance these attributes.  Interpretation of the site has been identified through the previous rounds of consultation and Council will continue to engage with key stakeholders in planning suitable opportunities.

    Regards,

    I note the plan includes enlargement of the current toilet facilities which is currently located only a few metres from Tinto cafe. Odours from the toilet block currently impact on customers dining at the Cafe. Can this issue be considered please and a solution to the problem found as part of the plan.

    J Tucker asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your comment. Issues such as the one you raise will addressed through detailed design of the buildings.

    There is a significant use of the bath street boat ramp. On Saturdays and special events for boating on the lake there are a large number of trailers using this area to launch their boats. All this is great for visitors to Toronto. I cannot see any capacity for trailer parking or significant visitor parking to thus area. Can you advise if there is facility to enable trailer parking and greater visitor parking at the Bath Street location?

    Coment asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question. The plan provides for on-street parking at Bath street to facilitate access and use of the reserve. The wharf and boat ramp at Bath Street is not a public facility and therefore trailer parking has not been allocated.  The plans reflects community input from the previous rounds of consultation requesting retention and enhancement of open green spaces.

    Why is the boat ramp being removed? Can it be kept or a new one built somewhere on the foreshore?

    EMoses asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question. The current boat ramp does not meet RMS standards in terms of appropriate number of parking spaces.  Removal of the boat ramp will provide improved connectivity along the length of the foreshore to Wharf road and expansion of the playground area.  We are seeking feedback from the community on the proposal to remove the boat ramp from the foreshore with alternative opportunities provided at Toronto Lions Park, Biraban Reserve at Coal Point and Bolton Point Park.

    I understand that the Tinto Cafe is on Community Land is that correct? WW

    westlakewrens asked 5 months ago

    Thanks for your interest in this project. That is correct, Tinto’s Cafe provides food and beverage offerings to the community. The proposal we are seeking community feedback on seeks to provide additional offerings in addition to food and beverage. Reclassification to Community Land threatens the viability of the proposal. The proposal is consistent with the current Operational Land classification.

    Will a shared user path (similar to the one constructed from Speers point to warners bay/ Elebana - including boardwalk) be constructed for this side of the lake? When will the master plan showing any shared user paths be available for community feedback?

    TKD asked 6 months ago

    Thanks for your interest in this project. This consultation is seeking community feedback specifically on a proposal for a small-scale commercial premises at 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row as opposed to the broader Toronto Foreshore Master Plan. 

    We are currently developing a concept master plan for Toronto Foreshore (encompassing the proposal for Bath St) , based on the input we have received from the community to date.  We will be seeking feedback from the community on the concept plan(s) in late 2020.  

    Regards,
