At its May 22-24, 2018 session, City Council adopted Official Plan Amendments 408 and 409 resulting from the Scarborough Centre on the Move Transportation Master Plan study.

 

Over the next 20-30 years, Scarborough Centre is expected to change significantly through development and public sector investments. The Scarborough Centre on the Move Transportation Master Plan study will guide these changes and establish a transportation network supportive of all users, focusing on building connections within the Centre as well as to the surrounding area and the rest of the City. The study will support the vision and evolution of Scarborough Centre into a walkable and connected urban centre, with an efficient, safe, and balanced transportation network.

The Scarborough Centre on the Move Transportation Master Plan study will be conducted to satisfy the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process in accordance with the Environmental Assessment Act. This Class EA process provides for:

  • Public input at key stages
  • Identification of problems/opportunities
  • Developing and evaluating a reasonable range of transportation network alternatives
  • Selecting a preferred transportation network
