In June, Council will be making a decision about the Eastern portion of the Gardiner Expressway. This is a key decision that the city will face in our lifetime, and will shape the city that our grandchildren will experience!
Councillor Cressy and I are co-hosting a public meeting on this decision to give residents a chance to learn more about the proposed options, to hear from experts Paul Bedford and Michael Kirkland, and to give residents an opportunity to weigh in on this issue. Paul Bedford is the former Chief Planner for the City of Toronto and Michael Kirkland is an architect specializing in urban design and planning.
The meeting details are as follows:
Date: Thursday May 21, 2015
Time: 7pm – 9pm
Venue: Artscape Wychwood Barns, 601 Christie St.
Hot-button issues to be discussed:
- Traffic flow and travel times
- Economic advantages and disadvantages
- Development prospects
- Long-term costs
- City-building benefits and opportunities
I look forward to having a vibrant discussion with you around these topics.

Wychwood Barns Community Association, Evergreen CityWorks, and Councillor Joe Mihevc are partnering to host a series of roundtables in May at Artscape Wychwood Barns. Each roundtable will open with a presentation by leaders in each of the featured topics.
Connect with others in your community and create a shared vision for what Canadian cities need in order to be better places to live, work, and play. The roundtables are a fun and dynamic way to contribute to the We Are Cities campaign. https://youtu.be/tjbRHZD96io
