Toronto's Downtown is in its most active period of residential and employment growth since the 1970s. This growth reflects its success in attracting residents seeking liveable, mixed-use neighbourhoods close to employment opportunities.
TOcore is a City of Toronto study looking at planning the Downtown. How should our Downtown grow in the decades ahead? What infrastructure and services will we need to keep it a great place live, work, learn and play? How can we reinforce Downtown's important economic role while ensuring it remains inclusive?
TOcore will lead to a renewed plan for Downtown. It will also develop strategies to ensure hard and soft infrastructure move in tandem with development:
- parks and public spaces
- walking and cycling networks
- surface transit
- community services and facilities
- water and waste water
The City is holding three community consultation meetings in the three downtown wards where you can learn more about this planning study, ask questions, and share your comments.
Each meeting will begin with an open house at 6:30pm followed by a presentation at 7:00pm and ending with an opportunity for attendees to provide their comments and questions to staff.
