City Planning is conducting a study of Ossington Avenue, between Dundas Street West and Queen Street West, to develop a vision for future development. The study involves a review of the street characteristics, built-form, density, height, and heritage value, as well as three community consultation meetings and ongoing opportunities for the community to provide comments by email or phone. Following the community consultation, City Planning will report to Community Council with their findings and provide recommendations for changes to the planning framework.

City Planning is holding the third of three community consultation meetings next Thursday where you can learn more about the study, ask questions and share your comments. This meeting will present the results of the community visioning process and present a draft version of a new area-specific Official Plan policy that would help implement the community vision.

Details are as follows:
Date: Thursday, December 13, 2012
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Place: CAMH – Cafeteria, 1001 Queen Street West
