Amendment to City of Toronto Municipal Code to add a chapter, Infill Construction Public Notice, to require the production, erection and display of information notices on infill housing construction sites to provide information to the public regarding infill housing demolition and construction projects
Toronto City Council will be considering recommendations to pass a by-law to amend the City of Toronto Municipal Code by adding a new chapter, Infill Construction Public Notice, which will require information notices to be produced, erected and displayed on the sites of infill housing projects in respect of both demolition and construction activities in order to communicate information about these projects to the public and to enable improved responses to the public’s concerns and complaints regarding infill housing projects.
It is proposed that the by-law be adopted at the Council meeting to be held on May 22, 2018 or at a subsequent meeting.
The proposed requirement to produce, erect and display information notices on the sites of infill housing projects is outlined in the report titled “Strategy for Minimizing the Negative Impacts of Residential Infill Construction Activity – Update”.
