In consultation with the local community, the City is developing a Neighbourhood Streets Plan for The Peanut area that will address three main areas of concern:

  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

We want to hear from people in the area about their transportation safety concerns. Your input can help us plan changes to improve the local streets.

The project area is located between Van Horne Avenue to the north, Highway 404 to the east, Esterbrooke Avenue and Fairview Mall Drive to the south and Bellbury and Lescon Parks trail system to the west.

A Neighbourhood Streets Plan identifies and recommends traffic operations and street design measures to create safer streets in the neighbourhood.

The Peanut Streets Plan will:

  • Consider the needs of all road users in the neighbourhood including vulnerable road users (e.g. pedestrians, children, older adults and people cycling).
  • Assess network-wide transportation needs throughout the neighbourhood, and coordinate with existing and planned future connections.
  • Develop solutions that, together, support local and City of Toronto objectives for mobility and safety.
  • Identify opportunities for short-term action that can be implemented with quick-build materials.
  • Identify opportunities for long-term changes alongside planned road resurfacing or reconstruction.

There are several steps to develop a Neighbourhood Streets Plan (NSP). Through the planning process, a team of City staff work with communities to identify local issues and opportunities, prioritize the greatest needs, and recommend changes to traffic operations and street designs.

NSPs follow several steps outlined below, and public consultation takes place in two stages.

  • Step 1: Public consultation on local issues & ideas *we are here*
  • Step 2: Develop actions & changes to address issues
  • Step 3: Public consultation on proposed actions & changes
  • Step 4: Finalize plan for approval by Community Council
  • Step 5: Implement short-term actions
  • Step 6: Monitor, evaluate, and update community on future changes

NSPs will result in short-term actions (1 to 2 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.

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.

About the Public Consultation

The City of Toronto is inviting local residents, businesses and organizations to learn more and provide feedback on The Peanut Streets Plan project. Public and community interest groups’ opinions, along with technical and policy considerations will be used to inform City staff recommendations and decisions to be made by City Council.

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

  • Phase 1: Present background information and consult the community on issues commonly experienced in the neighbourhood and ideas for actions and changes.
  • Phase 2: Consult the community on proposed short-term actions (1 to 2 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.
