Public Realm Master Plan for Yonge-Eglinton Area Moves Ahead!

Today, the City of Toronto's Planning and Growth Management Committee adopted Midtown in Focus, a public realm Master Plan for the Yonge Eglinton Area. Our Swerhun team worked closely with Public Work, Parsons Brinckerhoff, MetroQuest, City Staff, and many, many community members to develop this Plan, and we're happy to see it take this step forward.

We used a number of innovative consultation and communication tools in this project, including  a project-specific website, a place-based crowdsourcing platform called CrowdMap, and walking tours as public meetings (including one in sub-zero conditions)! 

Congratulations to the community members who advocated for the creation of this Plan and the City Staff that worked so hard to get it to this stage!
