Media invited to preview recommendations for Eglinton Avenue
  
Members of the media are invited to preview the recommendations for the future of Eglinton Avenue in Toronto. The recommendations include new streetscapes and new types and sizes of buildings, as well as plans for the six focus areas that were discussed in the earlier rounds of consultation.

Date: Monday, October 7
Time: 6:15 p.m.
Location: George Harvey Collegiate Institute, 1700 Keele St. (south of Eglinton Avenue)

Media will be able to view a 40-metre map of the Eglinton corridor.

Planning concepts and options for the future of Eglinton Avenue will then be presented at three open houses for the general public on October 7, 8 and 9.

The objectives of the Eglinton Connects Planning Study are to intensify, beautify and improve mobility along Eglinton Avenue. These objectives will help to realize the full potential of opportunities presented by the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
