Public meetings to discuss future of Toronto’s street furniture
  
The City of Toronto is hosting a series of workshops to gather public input on the City’s proposed co-ordinated street furniture program and discuss how improved design and placement of street furniture can best improve Toronto’s public space.

A number of street furniture elements such as transit shelters, waste/recycling bins, benches, phone booths and newspaper publication boxes have been added to the city’s streetscape over the past number of years. The aim of the co-ordinated street furniture project is to harmonize the design and placement of selected street furniture in a functional, accessible, and more attractive manner.

The meetings will take place as follows:

• Etobicoke Civic Centre, Tuesday, February 28
• Scarborough Civic Centre, Wednesday, March 1
• Metro Hall, Monday, March 6
• North York Civic Centre, Tuesday, March 7

All meetings are from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Pre-registration is required for these workshops as space is limited. Please call 416-338-1066 or e-mail streetfurniture@toronto.ca to register.
