Bloor Dundas ‘Avenue’ Study

The City is undertaking a study for the portion of Bloor Street West between Keele Street and Dundas Street West and for Dundas Street West between Glenlake Avenue and Boustead Avenue.

The purpose of the Bloor Dundas ‘Avenue’ study is to create a framework for new development and identify needed service, transportation or streetscape improvements. The City Planning Division’s recent Bloor Street Visioning Initiative will inform the study’s work and help shape a vision for the area.

Join us! Come learn about the study and how you can participate.
