March 8th: City of Toronto Community Consultation Meeting: High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Character Study

The City is holding a Community Consultation Meeting

Thursday, March 8th

Open house: 6:00-7:00PM

Presentation & Workshop: 7:00–9:00PM

Runnymede United Church, 432 Runnymede Road

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the progress of the High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Character Study and provide area residents an opportunity to engage in the study process, express their opinions and ask questions of staff. We encourage you to attend this important meeting.

In April 2017, as a result of the proposed level of intensification in the High Park Apartment Neighbourhood, City staff recommended to City Council that an area based character study be undertaken to evaluate existing physical characteristics of the Neighbourhood and identify appropriate principles, policies and guidelines to guide future change and compatible infill development in the area.

As part of the character study, an advisory working group was formed, consisting of community members and representatives from parties with an interest in development of the neighbourhood. The group has met three times so far: December 9, February 5 and February 27.
