Media Advisory: Proposed changes to Union Station's draft master plan focus of second public forum
  
Toronto residents and users of Union Station are invited to participate in a
forum focusing on proposed changes to the draft master plan for Union Station
on Monday, September 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the rotunda at Metro Hall,
55 John St. The forum will include a presentation at 7:30 p.m.

An earlier forum on September 13 provided an overview of information related to
the existing draft master plan. During that forum, users of Union Station and
other Toronto residents had an opportunity to comment on additional information
that has been collected as part of an independent review of Union Station's
draft master plan.

The two forums are part of an independent peer review approved by Toronto City
Council in May of Union Station's draft master plan. Both forums help to
optimize public involvement in, and encourage input into, any recommended
changes to the draft master plan for one of Toronto's most treasured heritage
landmarks.

What: Union Station Draft Master Plan public forum

When: Monday, September 27
4:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Public presentation at 7:30 p.m.

Where: Metro Hall Rotunda
55 John St.

As announced earlier, the results of the independent peer review will be
presented to a joint meeting of Toronto City Council's Planning and
Transportation Committee and Administration Committee scheduled to be held on
November 1, 2004. During the meeting, members of the public may make
deputations.

The final master plan for Union Station, as adopted by Toronto City Council, is
intended to guide the restoration and development of the station over the long
term. The master plan will define the City of Toronto's policies related to
Union Station and will be used to evaluate any future development issues. The
document will also ensure that priority is given to providing appropriate
transportation and pedestrian access, while still requiring the building's
restoration and maintenance.

Information about the revitalization plans for Union Station is available at
