We should all unite against the demise of the Port Lands at the hands of DEVELOPERS.
Can we form a group to help fight for the Green Space allocated in the ORIGINAL Port Lands Proposal??
Priginal Plan versus the New Plan.
But, as evident in Waterfront Toronto’s revised proposal released last week, this exercise has been hijacked by the not too hidden agenda of the Ford administration to undo and undermine everything that has come before, especially anything that expresses a generosity of spirit for the public or that is not of a commercial nature. article:
Ken Greenberg, a member of the team that designed the proposed riverside park at the mouth of the Don River, says revisions to the award-winning plan will strip the Port Lands of “all that is special.”
The suggested changes are part of a review of the Port Lands plan by the city and Waterfront Toronto and are expected to save as much as $150-million. They will also create larger areas for development.
You can participate in the planning process, Chris. There were two meetings held last week (one at St. Lawrence Hall on Monday, one further west on Tuesday). There will be another round of community consultation meetings in May. People were pretty adamant that the 40 acres of greenspace should continue to be part of the plan. It's going to be a phased plan, and won't all happen at once.
