City of Toronto holds town hall meetings on "Toronto at the Crossroads: Shaping Our Future"
The City will hold a series of six town hall meetings across the City between
November 23 and December 7, 2000, to obtain public input on the report "Toronto
at the Crossroads: Shaping Our Future." A second series of meetings on land
use, housing and transportation will take place early next year.

City Planning staff wrote Toronto at the Crossroads after a year of research
and public consultation into the state of the City and region. They listened to
the concerns and desires of the public at open houses and workshops, through
letters, faxes and e-mail. This report shares what they learned about the
challenges facing Toronto and recommends policy directions for the new Official
Plan to address them.

At these town hall meetings, the public will have the opportunity to have their
say on issues that affect their city and quality of life. City Planning staff
want to know if they need to re-adjust any of the policy directions that they
suggested, or if the report has missed something essential.

This is an opportunity for the public to shape the future of their city. Staff
will be available at each of the town hall meetings. The views of people who
live and work in Toronto are critical in establishing the policies in the
Official Plan, which will guide the City toward achieving a healthy and
prosperous future.

Each town hall meeting will be held between 6 and 9 p.m. Staff will make a
presentation from 7 to 8 p.m., with a discussion period to follow. All venues
are located close to major public transportation routes and are wheelchair
accessible. The service of a sign language interpreter will be provided.
