King Liberty Pedestrian/Cyclist Link Public Open House

King Liberty Pedestrian/Cyclist Link
Municipal Class Environmental Assessment
Notice of Public Open House

Public Consultation:
We invite you to attend our first Public Open House to learn more about the project, the potential locations for a pedestrian/cyclist link, and the next steps for this study. Drop by anytime to view information displays, provide your comments and speak one on one with project staff.

Details are as follows:
Date: Tuesday, March 9, 2010
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Liberty Market Building
171 East Liberty Street,
Tenant’s Lounge, 2nd Floor
(Entrance is off East Liberty Street beside the Bank of Montreal)

The City of Toronto has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental
Assessment Study (Schedule “C”) to determine possible
locations for the construction of a pedestrian/cyclist link through
the CN/CP railway corridor between Atlantic Avenue and
Strachan Avenue, along with a workplan for achieving this
pedestrian/cyclist link. The link is to be accessible to all
pedestrians and cyclists. A pedestrian/cyclist link would result
in an enhanced pedestrian and cyclist environment, allowing for
improved access between the communities north and south of
the CN/CP railway tracks.
The study area is bounded by Queen StreetWest to the north,
CN railway corridor to the south, Strachan Avenue to the east
and Atlantic Avenue to the west as shown in the map.
We would like to hear from you:
Public consultation is an important part of this study.

King Liberty link: Important for us too

Thanks for posting this, Scott. You beat me to it. :-)

Some people might wonder why this meeting notice is posted here, and why it's important for our neighbourhood.

One important thing to consider is that this new pedestrian/cyclist link over the railway tracks will be built near the end of Phase II of the West Toronto Railpath. It will be important for the designers of the King Liberty link to take the Railpath plans into account and make sure it all connects together, and that one project does not preclude the other.

Imagine being able to walk or cycle on a car-free path all the way from Cariboo Ave. down to the Liberty Village / Strachan Ave. area, with an easy connection down to the Martin Goodman Trail along the waterfront.....
