Extension for display of Coordinated Street Furniture RFP models
  
The public will now have more opportunity to see the models that illustrate the proposed street furniture designs submitted by three firms in response to the City’s Request for Proposals (RFP) for a Coordinated Street Furniture Program for the City of Toronto.

The models will now be on display for public viewing in the rotunda at City Hall as follows:

Wednesday, April 4 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Thursday, April 5 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, April 10 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Wednesday, April 11 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Thursday, April 12 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The street furniture designs can also be viewed on the City’s website at http://www.toronto.ca/streetfurniture or on display boards at the following civic centres: Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall; North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge Street; and Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Drive.

The City of Toronto has embarked on a number of Clean and Beautiful City initiatives to improve and elevate the quality of public spaces. A key element to realizing this bold vision was the Request for Proposals for a Coordinated Street Furniture Program.

Evaluation of the proposals under the RFP process includes review by an independent Design Jury, composed of recognized professionals in their disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design, graphic design and the arts. City staff expect to report on the evaluation results, which also take into account functionality, financial and qualification aspects, to the Executive Committee on April 30, 2007.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
