Over the coming year, the City of Toronto will be reviewing the parking requirements in the city-wide Zoning By-law (569-2013). The review responds to growing interest in the impacts of parking on housing affordability and travel behaviour, and recognizes that the current zoning standards have not been reviewed recently. The recommended approach to this review was reported to Planning and Housing Committee January 19 (http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2021.PH20.4).
I am reaching out to invite you to join the Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) for this project and to attend the first meeting of the group 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. on March 11. The purpose of this meeting is to provide background on the review and get feedback on our approach and initial directions.
Over the course of the project, we will convene meetings of the SAC at key points to review progress and emerging directions. We are aiming to report back to PHC in late Q4 2021 on the recommended directions.
If you would like to join the SAC, please register for this event here: https://toronto.webex.com/toronto/onstage/g.php?MTID=e3d244f54fbb74097189fb1787e7d74cb. You will also be added to the email list for the project. Those who enter their mailing address will also be added to the Interested Parties list to receive statutory notices related to the project.
Please feel free to email me with any questions.
