Old East Village Dundas Street Corridor Secondary Plan

What is being proposed?

Planning staff are proposing the development of a secondary plan for the Old East Village Dundas Street Corridor.

As stated in the staff report:

The Old East Village Dundas Street Corridor Secondary Plan is intended to provide more specific policy direction, than the parent London Plan, for development and public projects within the secondary planning area. It responds to a number of emerging initiatives within the Old East Village Corridor – including such things as the introduction of Bus Rapid Transit, an upcoming infrastructure and street renewal project, a cycling route assessment and various development pressures on the Corridor. The secondary plan is intended to be completed by the end of 2018, so that it can serve as the foundation for the design of the reconstruction of Dundas Street from Adelaide Street to Ontario Street.

The Terms of Reference are the first step in the process of preparing the Secondary Plan and include the purpose, key issues to be addressed, study area, the proposed public engagement program and a timeline for completion. To meet the proposed timeline, Staff recommend that any changes to the terms of reference desired by Council be directed to Staff, so that they can make those changes and move forward with the secondary plan project immediately.

What are the next steps?

There will be a public participation meeting on 19 February 2019, starting no earlier than 5pm, on the proposed draft secondary plan.

A final secondary plan will come forward to planning and environment committee at a future meeting.

What's Happened So Far?

There was a public participation meeting on the draft terms of reference on 30 April 2018.

There was a community information meeting about the secondary plan and East-West bikeway on 27 June 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Aeolian Hall. Learn more at the overview page for the East-West bikeway.

    There are bike lanes on queens and king…Leave them there….and leave the parking on dundas….would of been nice to know where the meeting was…and perhaps more than a few hours heads up….attended the bias bike meeting held earlier in the year……appeared the people holding the meeting already had decided….and ignored the wishes of the businesses on Dundas….no bike lanes on Dundas.
