– Transportation impacts.

At a previously held workshop, Toronto residents asked for more time to review the consultants’ technical reports and various related materials. In response to that request, the City is moving the date of the Town Hall meeting. The City has also invited Porter Airlines and the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) to attend the September 19 Town Hall meeting. An update report for Executive Committee later this month will also be available at the Town Hall meeting.

This evening, a second workshop will take place, as originally planned:

Monday, September 9
Metro Hall, 55 John St., rooms 308/309
6 to 7 p.m. (drop-in)
7 to 9 p.m. (workshop)

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