Midtown In Focus Open House – Saturday June 3, 2017

Plan to attend this City of Toronto workshop to help shape the future of our Midtown Toronto.

The Yonge-Eglinton area has experienced significant growth and change in the last decade. The City is developing a plan – Midtown in Focus – to ensure the ingredients of a livable community are in place in the near term and long term, including parks and public spaces, great old and new buildings, community services and facilities, and transportation and servicing infrastructure.

We need your input. On Saturday, June 3rd, City staff will be hosting an open house and workshops as part of Midtown in Focus.  At the open house, City staff will present the findings and emerging directions of the study and ask for your feedback in preparation for a new plan for Midtown.

Doors will open at 9:30 a.m.  Information stations and staff will be available throughout the day.  Workshop sessions (10:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:00-1:00 p.m.) will focus on built form and public realm priorities in different character areas across Midtown.
