Public Meeting on the Future of the Rail Corridor Site


Date: Monday, September 25th, 2017
Time: 6:00-8:30 pm
Location: City Hall, Council Chambers and members Lounge, 100 Queen St. W.

“This is the second public meeting regarding the City-initiated Official Plan Amendments for the rail corridor between Bathurst Street and Blue Jays Way. The purpose of this meeting is to offer the public the opportunity to learn more about the project and provide feedback to City staff on the emerging vision and draft Official Plan Amendment. The event will begin with an Open House at 6:00 pm and a presentation at 6:30 pm. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

Proposal
This City-initiated amendment to the Toronto Official Plan proposes a new planning framework to support a large park over the rail corridor between Bathurst Street and Blue Jays Way (“Rail Deck Park”). The proposed planning framework envisions a vibrant, sustainable, and accessible park for all Torontonians, and will address land use, public realm improvements, connectivity, and servicing, among other matters. The City-initiated amendments will include updates to the Railway Lands West, Central, and East Secondary Plans.

Public consultation is an important part of the planning process for the rail corridor and Rail Deck Park. We look forward to hearing your input on this important city building initiative. You can find more information at the following website: www.toronto.ca/railcorridorstudy”

CityPlace Terry Fox Run a Success

September 19, 2017

This past Sunday marked the fourth annual CityPlace Terry Fox Run at Canoe Landing Park. The event was a huge success, raising a best $16,000+ towards progressive cancer research and attracting over 250 participants..

The weather was beautiful and the neighbourhood was out in full force on Sunday morning. As usual, the event started with some energizing morning Yoga lead by Tribe Fitness. The warm-up was followed by a 5km run/walk. Local partners within the community such as Jimmy’s Coffee and Myodetox provided some much needed post-run refreshments and therapy.

Event Organizer, Sal Chaudhry stated, “There is nothing quite like a great-cause bringing the community together. We can’t wait to build on our success next year.”

Way to go CityPlace!

Engaging Toronto Planning Review Panel on Parks and Land Use Above the Rail Corridor

Engaging Toronto Planning Review Panel on Parks and Land Use Above the Rail Corridor

The CityPlace Residents Association was invited to attend the Toronto Planning Review Panel meeting on Saturday, September 16, 2017 to provide some perspectives on Parks and Land Use Above the Rail Corridor

Here are the three main points we framed our perspectives around:

  • The need for parkland near CityPlace and around the Rail Corridor in general
  • How a park could be used to connect different neighbourhoods, as well as serve people in nearby offices, etc.
  • How the site can serve all Torontonians, not just those in neighbouring areas

MPP Han Dong Coffee and Condos Town Hall

MPP Han Dong Coffee and Condos Town Hall

This is just a friendly reminder that Han Dong, Member of Provincial Parliament for Trinity-Spadina, will host a special Coffee & Condos Town Hall meeting, this coming Tuesday, August 15th at the Waterfront Neighbourhood Centre!

The event starts at 7pm and there will be coffee, tea and snacks available upon entry!

The tremendous increase in condos across the province has been accompanied by various challenges that needed to be addressed on behalf of owners, residents, managers, boards, and many others. That’s why this will be a great opportunity to hear more about the Protecting Condominium Owners Act!

Learn more about the updated legislation and ask your questions to Han and Ministry of Government and Consumer Service staff who will also be in attendance. We will also get an update on Han’s Private Members Bill 109 – The Reliable Elevators Act. This bill has received great support from Government and Opposition members, industry professionals, community stakeholders and residents throughout the Province!

We hope that you will join us at Aug 15th!
