Finch Goods Movement Study – Public Event #1

Title: Finch Goods Movement Study – Public Event #1
Date and Time: December 2nd, 2019, 3:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: 70 Canuck Ave., Toronto M3K 2C5
Over the next four years, Metrolinx will be constructing light rail transit (LRT) centre-running along Finch Ave West from Highway 27 to Keele Street. While the LRT will benefit the community in many ways, it will also introduce new operational changes to local roads and freeways. These changes will affect how businesses ship and receive their goods and make freight deliveries. Members of the public and stakeholders are invited to provide commentary on potential future improvements, as well as sharing their experiences in the area to ensure as many concerns are captured as possible.

Background:

The City is undertaking this Finch West Goods Movement Transportation Master Plan to identify how these transportation issues can be met effectively. The results of this Transportation Master Plan will include several short, medium and long-term strategies to address future shipping and freight delivery while also considering the safety and efficiency of travel for commuters, transit users, cyclists and pedestrians.

Consultation with stakeholders and the public is a key component of the study. The City and Consultant team (with support from the Duke Heights and Emery Village BIAs) are hosting Public Information Centres (PICs) to engage residents and stakeholders on issues relevant to this study.

City staff will be presenting the results of our Phase 1 activities which include the Problem and Opportunities Statement as well as the Evaluation Criteria.

The first BIA PIC session will be:

Emery Village BIA

Date and Time: November 28th, 2019, 3:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Julius Event Centre
2201 Finch Ave. W., North York M9M 2Y9

The next Public Information Centre session in York Centre is:
Duke Heights BIA
Date and Time: December 2nd, 2019, 3:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: Downsview Park Hub
70 Canuck Ave., Toronto M3K 2C5

Anyone with an interest in this study is invited to attend and participate at the PICs. The display boards will be available on the project web site at www.toronto.ca/FinchWestGoodsMovement, along with comment sheets prior to the PICs.
