You are invited to attend the first public meeting for Project: Under Gardiner and the related Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. This public meeting on Thursday April 7th will tell you more about the project and its objectives. A series of early designs will be presented for public comment and feedback.

The Project
Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto are developing 4 hectares (10 acres) of new public space on underused land under the Gardiner Expressway. The space will connect seven neighbourhoods with a new 1.75-kilometre multi-use trail and spaces for cultural programming between west of Strachan Avenue and Spadina Avenue.

How to Participate 
You can attend the upcoming public meeting. The presentation and display boards will also be made available online for viewing and public comment the week of April 11, 2016.

The Environmental Assessment
Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto have initiated a Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to study the municipal infrastructure required for a new pedestrian crossing at Fort York Boulevard, a component of the larger project. The study will follow the requirements of Phase 1 through Phase 5 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to examine the need for the infrastructure and evaluate alternative solutions and alternative design concepts.
