Media Invitation to Midtown Toronto Urban-Planning Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2012) -

Attn: Toronto city hall and urban affairs editors

The media, public, development professionals and city planning staff are invited to a meeting that will help chart future growth in Toronto's Yonge-Eglinton area. The meeting will be held Tuesday, October 23, 7:00 pm, at 70 Roehampton Street, common room.

The meeting will provide an update on progress made on the Midtown Plan (www.midtownplan.ca) and seek additional input. This community-based project is seeking to improve urban planning in North Toronto and provide a vision for the future of this key area of Toronto.

The Midtown Plan project was created for several reasons:

  • Midtown's current official plan is incomplete, out-of-date and under-enforced;
  • improvements in area planning are hindered by divisions of responsibility between two separate and distant planning departments and two Community Councils; and
  • the area is seeing unprecedented development that's overwhelming existing planning frameworks and even newer, informal planning measures.

The meeting will be chaired by local resident and urban planner Terry Mills.
