Update #7

Thank you for popping in!

A great big “thank you” to those of you who participated in the King-Parliament Pop-up on Jarvis Street last month. Whether you went on a walking tour through the area, participated in a lunch and learn, or just dropped by to talk with a planner, we hope the Pop-up offered you the opportunity to learn more about how King-Parliament is growing and changing and to provide feedback on the Secondary Plan Review.

A Pop-up Consultation Summary is now available on our website. Take a look to find out what we heard from you – both about the Secondary Plan Review and the Pop-up format. All of the materials displayed and presentations provided at the Pop-up are also now available on-line. You can find them on our Meetings & Events page.

Proposed Secondary Plan – Fall 2019.

The feedback gathered through the Pop-up, in addition to our earlier consultations, is currently being used to inform the proposed Secondary Plan. The proposed Secondary Plan will be considered by City Council in Fall 2019. Stay tuned for updates on the proposed Secondary Plan beginning in September 2019.

If you have additional input that you’d like to share with the planning team over the summer, please send us your thoughts by email at kingparliament@toronto.ca or call Michelle Drylie at (416) 392-3436.

Lost & Found

A women’s bracelet was found at the Pop-up. If you or someone you know lost it, please get in touch with us with a brief description of what it looks like so we can return it to its rightful owner.

Only two days until the Pop-up!

City Planning is coming to King-Parliament from June 8-16, 2019. We’ll be at 73 Jarvis Street, at the southeast corner of Jarvis and Adelaide across from St. James Park. Come out to give us feedback on our emerging policy directions for the King-Parliament Secondary Plan!

Check out our schedule and register for events today! You can also drop-in at any time to chat with a planner.

We’ve added a new lunch & learn.

Did you know that 86% of dwellings in King-Parliament are in buildings over five storeys? And, that of the families that have children in the area, 37% of them have children under the age of 6 years old? To address the needs of families living in dense urban environments, the City of Toronto has developed new urban design guidelines called: Growing Up – Planning for Children in Vertical Communities. The Guidelines focus on design interventions at the neighbourhood, building, and unit scale to help create vital communities for the city’s youngest citizens.

Bring your lunch by the Pop-up and join in a discussion with City Planning staff to discuss the emerging issues that are shaping housing in high-growth areas like King-Parliament.

Meet the Chief Planner.

Don’t miss this chance to meet Chief Planner Gregg Lintern and former Chief Planner Paul Bedford, ask questions and gain valuable insight into planning issues in King-Parliament.

On Thursday, June 13th at 6:00 p.m., Chief Planner Gregg Lintern will share insights on how King-Parliament is growing and changing and what that means for the Downtown and the city as a whole.

On Tuesday, June 11th at 5:30 p.m., former Chief Planner Paul Bedford will provide remarks on the ground-breaking 1996 Secondary Plan, how it has worked, and lessons learned.

Get some pointers on property research.

Is there a missing link in your property research? If you have initiated research on your property, or are looking to get started, join Cory Lemos of the Corktown Residents and Business Association Heritage Committee and Heritage Preservation Services staff to the Problem Solve Your Property Research session. They’ll share some helpful advice on research methods and the process of listing a property on the City’s Heritage Register.

Can’t wait to see you at the Pop-up!
