The Yonge Street North Planning Study has concluded with Council’s adoption of the Yonge Street North Secondary Plan. The Yonge Street North Secondary Plan establishes a new planning framework for the area and includes policies to guide growth and a complete community, including but not limited to policies related to the area structure, public realm, parks and open spaces, transportation and mobility, housing, community services and facilities, built form, and implementation.
The final staff report, supplementary report to City Council, and City Council’s decision can be found on Item PH NY34.5, Yonge Street North Planning Study – City-Initiated Official Plan Amendment.
The City of Toronto has completed the Yonge Street North Transportation Master Plan (TMP), which followed Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
The TMP was undertaken alongside the Yonge Street North Planning Study to inform the creation of a new policy framework for the area. The TMP recommends new street networks, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, and shared mobility facilities like carshare and bikeshare to support future growth of the area. The preferred alternatives were evaluated based on technical analyses and incorporated feedback from the public and agencies over the course of the study. While the TMP addresses needs and justification at a broad level, more detailed studies for projects included in the Master Plan will be done at a later date under future phases of the Municipal Class EA.
