Bloor/Dundas Visioning Session #3

The notice below arrived in my mailbox on March 16th. This visioning study is for an area just outside of our Residents Association, Bloor St. between Dundas W. and Keele, but its impact may affect most of us.

If you shop on Bloor St., use Dundas West subway station, use the Bloor GO station, or even just walk, cycle, or drive through the area, you may be interested in attending this session. Details below.

Bloor/Dundas Visioning Session Community Consultation

Visioning Session #3
Wednesday, March 26, 2008 6:30-8:30pm
Lithuanian House
1573 Bloor Street West

The area of Bloor Street West between Keele Street and Dundas Street West is an area in transition. Both major streets are designated as 'Avenues' in the new City of Toronto Official Plan. 'Avenues' are important corridors where some redevelopment is anticipated and encouraged in order to accommodate growth.

The City's Planning Division has initiated three sessions to assist in developing a collective vision to guide and shape future planning and development for this stretch of Bloor Street West.

This third and final session will build upon the previous sessions held on January 16, 2008 and March 5, 2008. At this session, City Staff will present draft recommendations to the community. Your input and feedback will help the City formulate principles to guide the evolving character of the area.

If you cannot attend the meeting, you can still make your views known by sending a fax to 416-392-1330 or by writing to Raymond David, Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, City Planning Division, 100 Queen Street West, Floor 18E, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2.

For more information, please contact Kevin Edwards at 416-392-1306 or by email at

You can also contact Councillor Gord Perks, Ward 14, at 416-392-7919.

There is some information about proposed developments along this section of Bloor St. at the Friends of Dundas and Bloor website.
