Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto are jointly undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) and Public Realm Concept Study for the Lower Yonge Precinct Area. They invite you to attend a Public Information Centre (PIC) to provide feedback on the development of this EA.
At this PIC, they will be providing an overview of the new transportation infrastructure alternative designs and an update on the development of the Public Realm Concept. A construction update for the York/Bay/Yonge Ramp Removal Project will also be available. They welcome your participation and ideas to help shape the future of the Lower Yonge Precinct. Feedback forms will be provided at the PIC and will also be available on the websites noted below.

A Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was completed in 2015 that identified the transportation infrastructure required to support development within the Lower Yonge Precinct Area. The TMP addressed the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA. This project will fulfill Phases 3 and 4 requirements under Schedule ‘C’ of the Municipal Class EA process. It will define specific road alignments, lane configurations, the public realm concept and other technical aspects, such as integrating active transportation.
An Environmental Study Report (ESR) will be prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class EA, which is an approved planning process under the Environmental Assessment Act.
More information about the Lower Yonge Precinct is available on the project websites at www.waterfrontoronto.ca/loweryonge and toronto.ca/planning/loweryongeprecinct.
