The draft Secondary Plan will be considered at the July 8, 2022 meeting of North York Community Council. The Final Report will be available on the City Clerk’s website once public.

The City has initiated a planning study to develop a vision for the future of the Yonge Street corridor between Finch Avenue and Steeles Avenue in response to existing and anticipated development pressures in the area.

The Study will be undertaken in the context of the existing Provincial policies and plans. The Province’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe identifies ‘urban growth centres’, including North York Centre, where significant employment and population growth is to be accommodated and linked by high order transit to other urban growth centres.  The Province’s Regional Transportation Plan (Metrolinx’s “Big Move”) identifies the northerly extension of the Yonge subway and east-west rapid transit along the Steeles Avenue corridor.

The Study will determine the level of development that can be supported by the existing and improved transportation network and planned higher order transit system.  The primary objective of the Study is to provide a comprehensive set of planning tools to realize the vision for the area and respond to increasing development pressures.
