City Planning – Bathurst Land Use – Meeting Tonight!

via the City of Toronto Planning Department:

Planning Study Background

The City of Toronto has initiated a study to develop a built form and land use vision for Bathurst Street between Queen and Dupont Streets.

The purpose of this study is to develop a planning and urban design framework that addresses land use, built form, heritage, and the public realm.

This study emerged in response to recent development activity along Bathurst Street.

Bathurst Street plays a unique role as a boundary between the area our Official Plan identifies as “Downtown and Central Waterfront” and the rest of the city.

A land use and built form vision for the area needs to be developed to provide guidance to property owners proposing new developments, to inform City staff in reviewing applications for new developments, and to ensure that Bathurst Street reflects the community’s vision for the area.

City Planning is leading the project and has retained a consultant team to prepare the study. The success of this study depends on input from local residents who have an intimate knowledge of the area.
