"EGLINTONConnects" zoning changes:
Public meeting, December 14


The City of Toronto worked with partner agencies, including Metrolinx, to make sure that neighbourhoods along and near Eglinton Avenue remain desirable places in which to live, work and play — after the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line starts operating. (By 2021, Metrolinx expects trains to be operating along the new line between Mount Dennis in the west and Kennedy Station in the east.)

The City has completed EGLINTONConnects, a major planning study to review how the street operates and looks after the LRT is in place. City Planning staff wanted your ideas on how to design the street, improve the streetscape and encourage a mix of residential and commercial developments and how people get to and from the stations. Staff organized a series of public workshops to listen to the people who live and work near Eglinton in spring 2013.

Now the City proposes to make changes to its zoning by-law to allow Metrolinx contractors to build various structures along the line as part of the Crosstown project. Structures include station buildings, a storage and maintenance facility in Mount Dennis and four power substations.

You can learn more about how changing the zoning by-law affects you at a public meeting next week.

Monday, December 14,
