Last week at Toronto and East York Community Council, I was successful in passing a motion to begin a Dundas Roncesvalles Planning Study.
That Toronto and East York Community Council:
Request the Director, Community Planning to conduct a review of development on Roncesvalles Avenue, between Queen Street West and Boustead Ave. and on Dundas Street West between Boustead Avenue and Sorauren Ave., including an inventory of current applications and current development pressure in the area and to work with the Director, Transportation Services to review potential streetscape improvements on Dundas Street West in the context of current and future development proposals;
Request the Director, Community Planning and the Director, Urban Design, to assess the applicable policy framework in the area and consider developing additional urban design and built form guidelines, including an assessment of heritage resources, to be used to inform the review of current and future development proposals, and to develop an understanding of what defines the character of the street;
Request the Director, Community Planning to report to Toronto and East York Community Council in the second quarter of 2016 on the status of this work.
If you are interested in participating, please send me your contact information (name, address, email and phone number). Once a date has been confirmed for the first Planning Community Meeting, I will be sure to send an invitation out.
I look forward to working with you on this important work.
