In July 2014, City Council requested the City Planning Division to undertake a study of Danforth Avenue, in two segments, between the Don River and Coxwell Avenue and Coxwell Avenue and Victoria Park Avenue. Authorization for this study can be found within Council item TE.33.15 – Final Report – 2359 Danforth Avenue – Zoning Amendment Application, Recommendation Number 6.

Scope of Work

The Danforth Avenue planning study will be a multi-disciplinary review to be conducted as a comprehensive and integrated planning study. The study will be led by the City Planning Division (Community Planning with support from Urban Design, Heritage Preservation Services and Transportation Planning). Transportation Services, Economic Development and Parks, Forestry and Recreation Divisions will also support the study as required. City Planning staff will undertake a scope of work that will involve reviewing the character and place, the built form, the public realm, the retail vitality, the community services and facilities and the heritage and historic character of Danforth Avenue, in the context of the various surrounding neighbourhoods.
