Bayview Traffic Working Group – Public Meeting, Tuesday, June 24, 7 p.m.

Traffic and congestion have been front and centre throughout city planning’s ongoing design guidelines study of Bayview Avenue between Lawrence Avenue East and Highway 401.

Based on your feedback and the advice of senior city staff, I passed a successful motion directing city staff to establish a Bayview Avenue Traffic Working Group. The working group will complement city planning’s design guidelines study and focus on traffic and congestion issues on Bayview between Lawrence and the 401 – including the traffic impacts of intensification.

The kick off public meeting is set for 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24 at the Centre for Creative Learning at Crescent School (2365 Bayview Avenue). All are welcome – please RSVP by sending me an email or calling my office at (416) 395-6408. I look forward to seeing you there!.

Bayview Avenue Planning Meeting

As you know, Bayview Avenue is facing significant intensification pressure. I have been meeting with senior city planning staff, including our Chief Planner, to highlight the issue and identify how we can preserve what makes Bayview and its adjacent neighbourhoods unique and livable.

I have also heard directly from many of you and very much appreciate the feedback and perspective.

Based on that feedback, I have organized a community meeting to discuss development on Bayview between Lawrence Avenue and the 401.

The meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6th at Crescent School (in the Centre for Creative Learning) at 2365 Bayview.

The meeting is an opportunity to speak directly to senior city planning staff and to think through our options and possible next steps as a community.

Please let me know if you can attend by sending me an email at or by calling my office at (416) 395-6408. Also, please do not hesitate to let me know if you would like to receive email updates as we move forward.

I look forward to seeing you there!
