The Don Valley Corridor Transportation Master Plan (DVC TMP) Summary Report and the accompanying Staff Report were adopted at City Council on May 18th, 2005:
The DVC TMP was completed following Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process and its requirements for public consultation. For specific Master Plan initiatives that are subject to EA requirements (e.g. construction of new road and transit infrastructure) subsequent phases of the EA process and additional public consultation must be completed prior to implementation.
City Council endorsed the 9 Key Initiatives recommended in the DVC TMP and supported additional Environmental Assessment and operational studies, required to implement the elements identified as Stage 1 and 2 - High Priority Elements of the Master Plan. These High Priority Elements will be completed by the agency or agencies that have jurisdiction and/or interest in the study. For elements requiring additional EA study, separate public consultation processes will occur as part of the individual studies, as required by the appropriate Environmental Assessment process (includes GO Transit, which has a separate Class EA process).
The City of Toronto, along with the Toronto Transit Commission, will be initiating an Individual Environmental Assessment for Higher-Order Transit Service on Don Mills Road, later in 2005. Initiation notices for this study will be placed in area newspapers and sent to all those who have expressed an interest in the DVC TMP and on the study mailing list.
If you wish to be added to the mailing list for the upcoming Don
Mills Road Higher Order Transit Environmental Assessment, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your with

The project will investigate options to increase person-carrying capacity in the Don Valley Corridor. Improvements will cover a wide range of possible solutions including traffic operations/management enhancements, transit priority, enhance transit services, transportation demand management, local road improvements and commuter parking.
Public meetings for this study were held in Spring 2003 and
April 2004. The Spring 2003 meetings addressed existing transportation conditions, problems and trends,
and a long list of possible alternative solutions. At the April 2004 meetings, project staff provided
information on the screening and evaluation of the alternatives, and an overview of the short-list of
alternatives, including details on recommended key initiatives.
