City of Toronto Municipal Licensing and Standards Staff, in partnership with City Planning, are leading a Rooming House Review and local consultation. All community members and stakeholders are invited to attend and discuss such issues as the impacts of rooming houses on surrounding neighbourhoods and conditions for rooming house tenants. Staff will be on-hand to receive public comments and input, answer questions and outline the next steps for policies.

Review of the City of Toronto Noise Bylaw

In response to directives from Toronto City Council, a staff review of the noise bylaw is underway. As part of the efforts to engage public opinion, an online survey is available at www.toronto.ca/haveyoursay from now until April 24.

The survey will focus on identifying the types of noise that are most disruptive, the associated impacts on residents and ways the City can improve communications about the bylaw. For more information, please visit www.toronto.ca/noise.

Future of the Gardiner Expressway East

Everyone is invited to attend two upcoming public meetings to listen and provide comment on the second phase of the Gardiner Expressway East Environmental Assessment (EA) and Integrated Urban Design Study.

In the previous phase of the EA, it was concluded that the removal of the elevated section of the expressway (approximately Jarvis St. to Leslie St.) best met the evaluation criteria. As per direction from Toronto City Council, the current consultation will focus on the response to concerns of traffic congestion associated with the removal option. A new "hybrid" solution has been developed that will preserve the link between the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway. It will be evaluated against the EA criteria and the following:

  • Transportation functionality

  • Impacts on key economic sectors

  • Cost benefit

  • Future land use considerations

  • Public transit components

  • Environmental impact

  • Neighbourhood growth and compatibility

Two public meeting dates and locations are listed below. If you are interested but unable to attend in person, the meeting is available to watch online at www.gardinereast.ca. Please also visit this website if you would like further information about the project, including the first phase, or to provide any comments you may have.
