BIA examines St. Lawrence public realm Feb. 26

The St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood BIA has scheduled a presentation and question and answer session for area residents to see and give feedback on a vision for the future of the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood on Feb. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at George Brown College (St. James Campus), 200 King St. E., Room 128.

The St. Lawrence Neighbourhood is in the midst of major growth that if managed correctly can provide opportunities to improve our streets, parks and other public spaces.  Projects such as Market St. and the western end of The Esplanade have been welcome enhancements and have begun to solidify a direction for the area.  In this vein, it is important to ensure that the neighbourhood keeps working towards new initiatives that will ultimately result in a consistent network of high-quality public spaces.

The St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood BIA has hired DTAH, a local urban design firm, to develop a master plan document that sets a long-term vision with clear, achievable objectives.

After receiving input from both BIA members and local residents, we are excited to share our ideas and invite you to be a part of the discussion.  DTAH will be using the Community Open House to present its first draft of the Master Plan and to provide an opportunity to hear feedback.
