The comment period for the Phase 1 consultation has closed. A report summarizing the consultation will be shared on this page in the coming weeks. View consultation materials in the Public Consultation tab below.


In consultation with the local community, the City is developing a Neighbourhood Streets Plan (NSP) for the Oakwood Village area that identifies, prioritizes and recommends short-term actions and long-term changes to traffic operations and road design to support safety for all modes of transportation.

The Neighbourhood Streets Plan aims to address four main areas of concern in the project area:​

  1. Road safety for vulnerable road users (e.g. pedestrians, children, older adults and people cycling)​
  2. Excessive speeding​
  3. Excessive motor vehicle traffic on local streets​
  4. Supporting opportunities for active transportation (walking and cycling)

The project area is located between Dufferin Street to the west, St. Clair Avenue West to the south, Eglinton Avenue West to the north, and to the east from Arlington Avenue at St. Clair Avenue West to Vaughan Road to Winnett Avenue at Eglinton Avenue.

What is a Neighbourhood Streets Plan?

Neighbourhood Streets Plans (NSPs) are a new service for neighbourhoods where traffic and travel patterns challenge the safety and mobility of people using the streets. Through the NSP process, a team of City staff will work with communities to identify local issues and opportunities, prioritize the greatest needs, and recommend changes to traffic operations and street designs.

NSPs consider the needs of all road users and emphasize the safety of vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.

What Types of Changes Will Be Considered?

The Oakwood Village NSP will result in short-term actions (one to two years) which can be made using temporary, flexible materials like signs, paint, and bollards. The NSP will also identify longer term changes which can be accomplished alongside future programmed road work.

The outcomes of each NSP will be different based on local conditions and the needs of each neighbourhood. Generally, NSPs will recommend actions related to motor vehicle speed and volume management, and traffic safety conflicts on local streets.NSP recommendations are informed by the City’s Traffic Calming Guide, Vision Zero Action Plan, and Complete Streets Guidelines. Some examples of actions that may be considered include:

  • Turn prohibitions
  • Changes to the location of street parking
  • Traffic calming measures (e.g. speed humps)
  • Intersection safety improvements (e.g. reduced curb radii, curb extensions, enhancements to pedestrian crossings)
  • Changes to road designs (e.g. reduced lane widths and bikeways)

Public consultation on the Oakwood Village Streets Plans will take place in two phases.

The participation of local residents and stakeholders is essential to identifying appropriate actions and effective changes for the Oakwood Village neighbourhood.

  • Fall 2023 / Winter 2024: Project planning, reporting and initial data collection
  • Winter 2024: Phase 1 public and community consultation on local issues & ideas (we are here)
  • Spring / Summer 2024: Develop actions & changes to address issues
  • Fall 2024: Phase 2 public consultation – community feedback to proposed changes
  • Winter 2025: Finalize plan and Staff report to Toronto and East York Community Council
  • Spring 2025: Implement short-term actions
  • Ongoing: Monitor, evaluate, and update community on future changes

The consultation will take place over two phases between Spring 2024 and Fall 2024:

  • Phase 1: will present background information and consult the community on issues commonly experienced in the neighbourhood and ideas for actions and changes.
  • Phase 2: will consult the community on proposed short-term actions (one to two years) which can be made using temporary, flexible materials like signs, paint, and bollards, and will identify longer term changes which can be accomplished alongside future programmed road work.

Information, reference materials, and reports on public consultation activities will be posted here.
