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

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.
