TOcore is about planning for the future of Toronto’s Downtown. The Downtown Plan is a 25-year vision that sets the direction for the city centre as the cultural, civic, retail and economic heart of Toronto and as a great place to live. The Downtown Plan provides a blueprint to manage growth, sustain liveability, achieve complete communities and ensure there is space for the economy to grow. A series of five infrastructure-related strategies are guiding implementation. These strategies cover community facilities, parks and public realm, mobility, energy and water. On June 5, 2019, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing issued a Notice of Decision approving Official Plan Amendment No. 406 (the Downtown Plan) with 224 modifications. The Minister’s approval is final and not subject to appeal. The In-Force Downtown Plan incorporates the modifications. There is also a redline version which shows the Minister’s modifications. The Decision also revised Section 2.2.1 of the Official Plan, amended Map 6 and added a new Map 6A . A summary and analysis of the modifications and their impact is also available.
