Toronto's Official Plan
rom the City of Toronto:
The City of Toronto's Official Plan is a city planning document that acts as Toronto’s road map for land use matters. It sets out our long-term vision, shared values, and policies that help guide decision-making on land development, economic growth, the environment, and more.
It’s important to keep the Official Plan up to date to accommodate growth. Toronto is expected to grow by 700,000 people and more than 450,000 jobs by 2051. Our Plan Toronto will focus on identifying where growth should go, and what it needs to support healthy, complete communities that are thriving and inclusive.
Here are three quick things you can do right now:
1) Watch this short video for a fun introduction to Our Plan Toronto and the big questions being asked as we plan for growth.
2) Fill out this poll to share your thoughts on key issues, values, and strengths that the City should focus on for Our Plan Toronto. It only takes 5 minutes and your feedback will help inform the conversations we’ll have over the coming months.
3) Download Your Guide to Our Plan Toronto to learn more about what the City is doing and why.

Market St. Survey Results
As was announced in our newsletter back in the summer, our neighbourhood's business improvement association - Old Town Toronto - hosted a survey to gauge support for pedestrianizing Market St.
You can view the results here.
Interestingly enough 93.5 percent of those completing the survey supported a complete summer closure of Market St. in 2022.
