The city is holding a community meeting on the Danforth Avenue Planning Study Sept. 14 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Hope United Church, 2550 Danforth Ave.
The aim of the study, which has been ongoing for over a year, is to provide “a local framework to guide and manage growth as needed at this time,” according to study materials.
While the meeting is an opportunity for the city to present the planning work they and the Stakeholder Advisory Committee have done to date (the presentation considers the built form of the neighbourhood, building heights, scales, massing, etc., parks and other community needs and amenities), Metrolinx will also be in attendance to provide an update on the work and plans for the Danforth GO transit station.
In June, around 70 people attended a Metrolinx meeting about the planned Lakeshore East rail corridor expansion, where Main Street, Ted Reeve Park and Dawes Road were presented as three main potential connectivity entry points.
In July, a proposal for a 30-storey tower at Main and Danforth was revealed.
