Moving ahead with the Leaside Neighbourhood Transportation Plan

Last term, I initiated a comprehensive plan to address traffic and road safety issues in the Leaside neighbourhood, led by Transportation Services. Consultation for the Leaside Neighbourhood Transportation Plan began in early 2022 with a virtual public meeting, followed by an opportunity for residents to submit feedback using an online mapping tool, which received nearly 500 responses. Thank you to all those who have participated so far.

During consultation, I heard from many of you that the plan as presented lacked a clear timeline for design and implementation. For that reason, I asked Transportation Services to provide a status report to North York Community Council (NYCC) at the first meeting of the 2022-2026 term.

In their report to NYCC, Transportation Services outlined the work undertaken to date and included a consultation timeline for Phase One. In Q1 2023, City staff will present a near-term proposal for community feedback, with a report due back to NYCC the following quarter on the recommended Phase One measures.

Please keep an eye on your mailbox for a Public Notice with more information on Phase One of the Leaside Neighbourhood Transportation Plan, including a public meeting date. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, I would highly encourage you to attend the public meeting or contact the project team at .

I am looking forward to moving ahead with much needed road safety improvements in Leaside.
