Important Statutory Open House for Midtown In Focus

Date: Monday May 28, 2018

Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. (presentation at 7:30 p.m.)
Location: Northern District Library, 40 Orchard View Boulevard, Toronto

This is a Midtown In Focus (MIF) community statutory open house, hosted by the Planning and Growth Management Committee, in advance of a session on June 7th when the MIF will be presented officially at the Planning and Growth Management Council. (See below for details.)

The official meeting notice can be found here (as a PDF file): Final Notice.letter.

Over the past few years Yonge and Eglinton, designated a growth area by the provincial government, has experienced unprecedented development and capacity issues. As a result, the City initiated MIF to identify how the area can continue to grow, but allow for infrastructure and social services, schools and transit to catch up with the growth. The Midtown In Focus planning blueprint will be used as a guide to determine growth and development in the Yonge and Eglinton area over the next 30 years.

A hard copy of the proposed Official Plan Amendment that will be considered by Planning and Growth Management Committee will be available at Metro Hall, 22nd Floor, 55 John Street, Toronto Ontario, starting on May 18, 2018. On May 31st the plan will be available online through the City of Toronto website: www.toronto.ca/legdocs/agendas.html

DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT LANDS

The proposed Official Plan Amendment will apply to the area generally bound by Briar Hill Avenue and Blythwood Road (both sides of the street) to the north, the Kay Gardner Beltline Trail to the south, Bayview Avenue (both sides of the street) to the east, and Chaplin Crescent and Avenue Road to the west.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

At its December 2017 meeting, City Council adopted a staff report titled “Midtown in Focus:Proposals Report”. At that meeting, City Council directed staff to undertake public and stakeholder consultation, including public open houses, Midtown Planning Group meetings and other public meetings as necessary on the proposed update to the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan. Staff were directed to report back with a final report and a recommended Official Plan Amendment on the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan at a Planning and Growth Management Committee meeting in the second quarter of 2018.
