Study Milestone – Proposals Report adopted by City Council!

The Don Mills Crossing Proposals Report and Draft Secondary Plan was adopted by City Council at its meeting on June 26, 2018. The Draft Secondary Plan advances a vision of Don Mills and Eglinton as a distinct and complete community that celebrates the natural heritage of the Don River Valley system and builds on the area’s tradition of cultural and technological innovation.

In the same session, Council also adopted a Directions Report for the proposed redevelopment of the Celestica lands at the northwest quadrant of Eglinton Avenue East and Don Mills Road. This report is informed by the draft policies of the Don Mills Crossing Secondary Plan.

A final round of public and stakeholder engagement on the draft policy framework will be conducted in the Fall of 2018. A Final Report with the recommended Official Plan Amendment containing the Don Mills Crossing Secondary Plan will be brought forward to a statutory public meeting at the Planning and Growth Management Committee in early 2019.

Thank you for helping us reach this important milestone in the study! Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to advance Phase 3 (Implementation) of the Don Mills Crossing study!

Proposals Report and Draft Secondary Plan Posted

The Don Mills Crossing Proposals Report will be considered at the June 7th Planning and Growth Management Committee (PGMC) meeting and presents the draft Don Mills Crossing Secondary Plan for public consultation. The report and attached draft Secondary Plan are now available for viewing.

The Draft Secondary Plan advances a vision of Don Mills and Eglinton as a distinct and complete community that celebrates the natural heritage of the Don River Valley system and builds on the area’s tradition of cultural and technological innovation.

Developed as part of the ongoing Phase 3 work program for Don Mills Crossing, the Draft Secondary Plan is a result of public engagement and technical background work completed since the launch of the study in October 2016. Most recently, over 85 participants reviewed and provided feedback on draft policy directions and the Mobility Plan Preferred Solution at an open house held on April 19th at the Ontario Science Centre.

Also at PGMC on June 7th, a Directions Report will be considered for the proposed redevelopment of the Celestica lands at the northwest quadrant of Eglinton Avenue East and Don Mills Road. This report is informed by the draft policies of the Don Mills Crossing Secondary Plan.

What’s Next?

If the Proposals Report is adopted at PGMC, a final round of public and stakeholder engagement on the draft policy framework will be conducted in the Fall of 2018. A Final Report with the recommended Official Plan Amendment containing the Don Mills Crossing Secondary Plan will be brought forward to a statutory public meeting at the Planning and Growth Management Committee in early 2019.

Thank you for helping us reach this important milestone in the study! We look forward to your ongoing participation and engagement in community building at Don Mills and Eglinton.

During Phase 1, we worked with you to understand the Don Mills and Eglinton area and its surrounding context. We spoke to over 400 people either in person or online and learned more about your neighbourhood, your favourite places, and things that could be better.

We also completed a number of background studies to inform our work which include:

  • A Development History of Don Mills and Eglinton
  • A Community Services and Facilities Profile
  • A Geotechnical Analysis of the adjacent valley lands
  • A Review of the Natural Environment in the adjacent valley lands

We are preparing a Profile Report to be considered by Planning and Growth Management Committee that summarizes the  background analysis and the community feedback to identify future areas of study as we move on to Phase 2 of Don Mills Crossing.  Watch this space for another update when the Profile is available for viewing.

The Study

Don Mills Crossing is an initiative lead by the City of Toronto City Planning Division that will examine ways to focus and shape anticipated growth around the intersection of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East anchored by the transit infrastructure being constructed as part of the Crosstown LRT.

Building on the work of Eglinton Connects, Don Mills Crossing will look to improve connections to the surrounding areas, lay out a network of open space and identify community services necessary to support new growth. This a key city building moment for Don Mills & Eglinton.

Don Mills Crossing will result in a new planning framework, which will include implementation measures to support co-ordinated development of employment, residential and community uses.

What We’ve Been Up To

Pop-ups
Over July, August and September the Don Mills Crossing team was out at various locations and community events to discuss the upcoming Don Mills Crossing study. Over the course of our four ‘pop-up’ events we spoke with over 200 residents learning about their favourite places in the area. Summaries of these events can be found on our website.
