Public consultation on the proposed use of jets at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport

The City of Toronto is hosting a public meeting as part of its series of public consultations on the request by Porter Airlines to expand runways and permit jet airplanes at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA). The focus of the meeting will be to provide an update on the review of this request, and to hear from members of the public.

The meeting will be held on Monday, January 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber, 100 Queen St. W. Brief update presentations will be provided at the meeting’s outset. City staff from Community Planning, Transportation Planning, Economic Development and Public Health will be available to answer questions.

A staff report on this matter, “Request to Amend the Tripartite Agreement for Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport,” was deferred at the December 5, 2013 Executive Committee meeting to the February 4, 2014 Executive Committee meeting, or to a special meeting at the call of the Chair. The staff report provides a summary of findings and consultant reviews, and recommends a process for moving forward. Pending decisions made by the Executive Committee, the final report will then go to Council for consideration.

The staff report and additional information are available on the project website at http://www.toronto.ca/bbtca_review.

Toronto residents are encouraged to participate in the public meeting and provide the City with feedback about this important issue.

The City’s public consultation process on this proposal is part of the assessment of how changes to BBTCA would impact Toronto, including ongoing revitalization of the waterfront and nearby communities on the water’s edge. The consultation process has included public meetings, telephone polling, face-to-face intercept surveys and an online survey.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world’s most livable cities. Toronto is proud to be the Host City for the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games.
