Event: Feeling Congested? – Tomorrow, October 3, 2013

A note from Councillor Janet Davis’ office:

The City of Toronto Planning Division is currently undertaking consultations related to an update of the transportation policies within the Official Plan. Updating these policies will help the City to deal with congestion on streets, sidewalks, and transit. This consultation process has been branded Feeling Congested? You can visit www.feelingcongested.ca for more information.

As an important stakeholder in Ward 31 Beaches-East York, we would like to invite you to participate in a focus group session to learn about and discuss some of the changes that Toronto City staff are proposing. The event is part of a series of focus groups that are happening in wards across the city.

The session will focus on two things: the concept of developing a transportation network, and a proposed new structure for making decisions around prioritising transportation projects within that network. This structure uses a set of eight criteria that are each broken down into a series of indicators.

You will learn how the criteria have evolved over the course of the Feeling Congested? process, and see how they can be applied differently in order to achieve a variety of outcomes.

In addition, you will be given the opportunity to review and comment on the indicators (or measures) associated with each criterion, and ask questions of staff or Councillor Davis.

Space at this event is limited, so click here to sign up today!
