City of Toronto study looking at planning the Downtown
Toronto's Downtown is in its most active period of residential and employment growth since the 1970s. This growth reflects its success in attracting residents seeking liveable, mixed-use neighbourhoods close to employment opportunities.
TOcore is a City of Toronto study looking at planning the Downtown. How should our Downtown grow in the decades ahead? What infrastructure and services will we need to keep it a great place live, work, learn and play? How can we reinforce Downtown's important economic role while ensuring it remains inclusive?
TOcore will lead to a renewed plan for Downtown. It will also develop strategies to ensure hard and soft infrastructure move in tandem with development:
- parks and public spaces - walking and cycling networks
- surface transit - community services and facilities
- water and waste water - energy
This event will introduce the study to resident and tenant associations in the Downtown and provide an early opportunity to give us your input.
