Broadview Avenue Study Approved by City Council

At the request of Councillor Mary Fragedakis, Toronto and East York Community Council and subsequently City Council passed a motion to conduct a development study on Broadview Avenue.  The study will address how new development will complement the existing built form, identify opportunities for public realm improvements, and plan for the transportation impacts of new development. You can find out more on the City’s website.

Background

The part of Broadview Avenue generally between Danforth Avenue and Hillside Drive is identified as an Avenue in the City’s Official Plan.  The City’s Official Plan calls for growth and intensification of  the number of jobs and residents along arterial corridors on streets designated as  ‘Avenues‘. Of course, being designated as an ‘Avenue’ is not the same as having ‘Avenue’ in the name of a street – Yonge Street is designated as an Avenue but Westwood Avenue is not.

Councillor Fragedakis has met with local residents to discuss this issue. She has also taken City planning staff on a tour of Broadview to highlight its unique challenges – not the least of which is being bounded by the Don Valley to the west and north.
