Mayor David Miller launches Building a Great City website
Today, Mayor David Miller launched a new website that will help residents access information about this Council’s priorities and the progress the City has made to-date. Named ‘Building a Great City,’ the website can be found at and also includes an e-mail link for members of the public to share their own stories of progress in their communities.

In 2004, at a series of Listening to Toronto sessions, Torontonians were asked what City Council should focus on during their three-year term. Council took the input from those consultations to heart and established nine key priorities which have had an ongoing influence on both program planning and budget decisions.

“I’m proud that council worked together and unanimously adopted priorities that, for the first time, reflected the priorities of Torontonians,” said Mayor Miller. “Following the Toronto Computer Leasing Inquiry, Madame Justice Denise Bellamy recommended that the city - through the Mayor - should report to the public annually. This is that report. It shows how the City has met its priorities as part of our effort to be a transparent and accountable government.”

To introduce the public to this new resource, bookmarks will be distributed to all City libraries, Parks and Recreation Centres, City-run daycares, Access Toronto service counters at civic centres and through the offices of Councillors and the Mayor. Those who do not have access to their own computer are encouraged to visit their local public library for free use of computer terminals and high-speed internet access.
