Toronto announces community meetings on land use strategy|
| || ||
Urban Development Services - This month, the City of Toronto will host
community meetings to present for discussion a proposed new Land Use Strategy.
The City's new Land Use Strategy is all about providing people with options and
creating opportunities, and will be a major component of Toronto's new Official
Land use policies:
- direct where we put new housing, jobs and services
- guide how we develop new neighbourhoods and businesses
- help determine where transit improvements should be made
- preserve the physical character of established neighbourhoods
- protect open space, and
- promote good urban design.
City Planning staff are proposing a much simpler land use system, with eight
land use designations rather than the existing 112 designations. The new
approach will be easy to read and less complex, with clear and concise
objectives, criteria and policies.
Each meeting will run from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The public can meet with planners
between 6:30 and 7 p.m. to discuss the proposals. A presentation by staff will
start at 7 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer period.
