Beginning in July, City of Toronto planning staff began conducting a study of West Queen West from Bathurst St. to Roncesvalles Ave. The study will look at the heritage character and value of buildings in the area, height of new developments, existing policies, public space improvements, transit issues and parking in the area, understanding and defining the character of the street and developing a vision for future development along the street. The first of two walks is set to take place this Saturday November 8th and will focus on Parkdale. Starting from Dufferin at the Amphitheatre the walk will continue west, ending at Roncesvalles. Community members are encouraged to join the walk to share thoughts and ideas about the neighbourhood. More details can be found here about the walk and the study.
