Our Urban Fabric: Designing and Creating Public Places Roundtable

Posted on February 22, 2013

 

The Chief Planner Roundtable is an opportunity for all Torontonians to engage in a dialogue on key city building issues within the City of Toronto. Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat welcomes you to hear her and twelve city building experts talk about creative and broad ways to meet the challenges, and the opportunities such challenges present, in the building of our great city.

Each Roundtable will produce a series of actions that will identify immediate steps and set the stage for future initiatives. You could be a part of the next city building plan to make Toronto into a better city for all.

You can RSVP by sending an e-mail with your name, contact information, and the roundtable(s) you plan on attending atchiefplannerroundtable@toronto.ca. The roundtables are open to all, but please be aware that space is limited.

On February 26, 2013, be part of the roundtable discussion on “Our Urban Fabric: Designing and Creating Public Places” to generate fresh ideas about how to shape Toronto’s growth in a way that also enhances the quality of its public realm.

Given the extent of current intensification, there is a heightened responsibility upon all stakeholders to ensure that the design of new buildings extends beyond site-specific interests, to actively and creatively engage the wider, place-making opportunities that exist around them. These opportunities should feed into a common vision that aims to create more vibrant streets that are supported by attractive, well maintained local parks, squares and public art features that combine to create an engaging and dynamic urban environment.

The framework to achieve these opportunities exists, with innovative partnerships between the City and its Agencies, private developers, and Business Improvement Areas (BIA’s) resulting in some highly successful public realm improvements. However, difficult questions remain about the priority and value we place upon our public realm, the way we fund it, how we implement it, and the way we imagine its potential
