The City of Toronto is seeking public input to help create a vision for Toronto's most iconic street.
The YongeTOmorrow study will develop and evaluate design alternatives intended to improve the way people move through and experience downtown Yonge Street between Queen Street and College/Carlton Street.
The public are encouraged to share their ideas for the YongeTOmorrow study in the following ways:
- Attend a stakeholder event on Friday, May 3 at 12:30 p.m. at Yonge-Dundas Square to learn more and complete the online questionnaire
- Attend the public drop-in event on Thursday, May 9 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriott, 475 Yonge St.
- Visit here and complete the questionnaire by May 24
By 2024, the residential population within a 10-minute walk of the area is set to grow by more than 43 per cent, and many changes are expected among the businesses and institutions that operate in the area.
YongeTOmorrow is being carried out as a Schedule 'C' Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. Ideas shared by the public will inform a City staff report that will be reviewed and considered by City Council. Consultation during this phase of the study will take place between April 24 and May 24. Staff will return to Council with a study update in the fall of 2019 and a final report is expected in 2020.
TOcore and the Downtown Secondary Plan in coordination with the Complete Streets Guidelines will inform the overall vision, character and function of the street. Yonge Street is a complex and dynamic street with many physical and operational considerations.
