Residents invited to help shape the future of Toronto's ravines

Posted on June 16, 2016

The City of Toronto has been working with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and consulting with the public and a wide range of stakeholders since early 2015 to develop a strategy on Toronto’s ravines.

 

To date, a vision and set of principles and actions have been developed to represent the core ideas and values that will guide the City in future decision-making related to ravines and address the challenges and opportunities in the ravine system. Before finalizing the principles and recommendations, the City would like to hear from the public.

 

All Torontonians are invited to provide input by participating in the upcoming Ravine Strategy pop-up consultations detailed below:

 

Toronto and East York District:

  • Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community Environment Day in Ward 31, East York Memorial Arena parking lot, 888 Cosburn Ave. at Cedarvale Avenue
  • Tuesday, July 5 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market, Trinity Bellwoods Park, near Shaw Street and Dundas Street West

 

North York District:

  • Saturday, July 2 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Northwood Park (behind the community centre on the north side of the asphalt path), 15 Clubhouse Ct.
  • Friday, July 8 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Edithvale Community Centre, 131 Finch Ave. W.

 

Scarborough District:

  • Saturday, July 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community Environment Day in Ward 41, Nashdene Yard, 70 Nashdene Rd.
  • Sunday, July 17, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Thompson Memorial Park (behind museum along main path), 1007 Brimley Rd.

As additional sites may be added, members of the public are encouraged to check http://www.toronto.ca/ravinestrategy for the most up-to-date schedule.

 

Ravines provide many important ecological benefits and recreation opportunities and are crucial to the functioning of the city. They are also a fragile resource. With population growth, new development and climate change putting increased pressure on ravines, a strategy to guide their future management, use, enhancement and protection is critical. The strategy will aim to navigate the fine line between protection and use, and identify the actions and investments needed to ensure Toronto’s ravines remain resilient and can be enjoyed and celebrated for years to come.

 

The strategy is being developed by Parks, Forestry and Recreation, together with City Planning and Toronto Water and in consultation with other City divisions, TRCA, the public and a wide range of stakeholders.

 

Consultation on the work to date will take place over the summer with the final strategy scheduled to be completed in April 2017.
