Just a friendly reminder about this upcoming event:

Friends,

I would like to inform you of a meeting about a proposed redevelopment at the southeast corner of Bloor and Dundas, at 2280 Dundas St W. At my request the developer has agreed to have this meeting before designing their full proposal, which gives us a chance to shape their application. This will be the first of several meetings over the coming months.

Many of you were part of a previous conversation about the potential for this site, creating a community framework during the preparation of the Bloor-Dundas Avenue Study in 2009, which can be found here: https://www1.toronto.ca/city_of_toronto/city_planning/community_planning/files/pdf/bloordundas_final_rep_full.pdf.

Public Meetings for GO Rail Network Electrification

Posted on June 12, 2017

To address the urgent transit needs of the GTHA, the Province of Ontario committed to implement Regional Express Rail and make other improvements to the GO system. A major step to providing more convenient and frequent travel options is the electrification of the Metrolinx GO train lines. By 2025, they plan to have electrified trains running every 15 minutes or better, all day and in both directions, within the most heavily travelled sections of the GO network.

Building on the first and second rounds of public consultation meetings held in February/March 2016 and November 2016, Metrolinx and Hydro One are now formally commencing the Transit Project Assessment Process. A third round of public consultation is planned for June/July 2017 (details below) and will present the findings of the technical/environmental studies (posted online at www.gotransit.com/electrification) undertaken for the GO Rail Network Electrification Project. Members of the public, government agencies, Indigenous communities, and other interested parties are encouraged to participate in the process and/or contact the project team directly with feedback or questions. A discussion guide will be posted online at www.gotransit.com/electrification prior to the meetings to provide key information.
