On June 5, 2019, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing issued his decision on the Yonge-Eglinton Official Plan Amendment (OPA 405). The Official Plan Amendment, as modified by the Minister, is now in force.
Midtown in Focus was an inter-divisional study to ensure that growth positively contributes to the vitality and livability of one of Toronto’s most dynamic neighbourhoods. The study resulted in a renewed plan for Midtown with an updated Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan and infrastructure strategies to ensure that infrastructure capacity not only keeps pace with development but also supports quality of life in Midtown. OPA 405 was submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing on August 9, 2018 for review and approval pursuant to Section 26 of the Planning Act.
