The Leaside Neighbourhood Transportation Plan (LNTP) will identify, prioritize and recommend near- and longer-term improvements to traffic operations and road design to support safety for all modes of transportation, including people walking, cycling and driving.
|February 9, 2022||Gather initial input via Virtual Public Information Session|
|July 18 to Sept 3, 2022||Gather feedback via Virtual Mapping Tool|
|Early 2023||Status report to North York Community Council|
The City is performing traffic counts in Leaside to study the local traffic patterns and deepen the understanding of travel behaviours. Traffic counts will provide detailed information on motor vehicle volumes, speeds and preferred travel routes.
The City is also tracking feedback from the public through comments provided to 311, email, the public meeting and the local Councillor’s office. The traffic data and public input will inform the near- and longer-term interventions to mitigate traffic issues.
The City will report to the first North York Community Council meeting of the new Council term (2022–2026) and provide a status update on the project.
The next round of public engagement will take place in early 2023, when the City will present a near-term plan for improvements. Local stakeholders and residents will have an opportunity to comment on the proposal and provide feedback before a final set of recommendations is established.
Share your transportation experiences, areas of concern and ideas for improvements within Leaside. Submit your comments by September 3, 2022.
