The first public consultation meeting for the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review took place on Monday, November 6, 2017, at the Agincourt Mall (3850 Sheppard Avenue East). An open house format was used and included two identical presentations, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
The purpose of the Open House was to:
- Raise awareness, generate interest and provide information about the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review;
- Engage with the community to better understand existing conditions, challenges and opportunities;
- Engage with the community to jointly develop a Vision with Guiding Principles for the redevelopment of the Agincourt Mall site and how it can best be integrated with the surrounding area; and
- Advise the public on how they can get involved in the Study.
This event was part of the first phase of the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review. City staff from various Divisions, including City Planning, Transportation Services, Engineering & Construction Services and Parks, Forestry & Recreation were present at the event to answer questions and engage with attendees. Representatives from TTC, Metrolinx and School Boards were also in attendance to answer questions.
The event consisted of an open house format with information boards on display. Staff were available at all of the boards to provide information and clarification to attendees and gather feedback. In addition to the open house format, two identical presentations were provided by City Planning staff to introduce the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review and its purpose at 5 pm and 7 pm.
Approximately 400 people attended the open house. People of different age ranges, from children to seniors and of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds attended.
The Agincourt Mall proposal was presented for 1st Review at the Design Review Panel.
Two PiPS pop-up events were held in August at the Agincourt Library and Agincourt Mall.
The purpose of these PiPS events was to advise residents that the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review is initiating in the late Fall of 2017 and to canvass the local community on how they spend their time in the area, how they get around, where they see potential opportunities and areas for improvement.
A summary will of the PiPS events will be posted in the near future. Stay tuned!
