City of Toronto kicks off Chief Planner Roundtable series
The City of Toronto is launching a new discussion forum called the Chief Planner Roundtable that is focused on city building themes. The first of three roundtables will get underway Tuesday, February 26 at Toronto City Hall and is titled Our Urban Fabric: Designing and Creating Public Places.
Each roundtable brings together various experts, City staff from a variety of divisions, and stakeholders in discussions about the challenges and opportunities faced on each of the themes. The roundtables will be chaired by Chief Planner, Jennifer Keesmaat and structured into three segments: setting the stage, reviewing key questions, and positioning change.
The goal of each discussion is to produce a series of actionable items that will identify immediate steps and set the stage for the future. Many great initiatives in this City were inspired by discussions designed to facilitate new thinking – the design review panel, and the midrise guidelines, for example. These roundtables build on that legacy and tradition of bringing a variety of voices and perspectives together to drive new approaches forward.
“It is my hope that the roundtables become a regular avenue for stimulating discussions on important city building issues facing Toronto,” said Jennifer Keesmaat. “Although we have selected the first three topics, I will look to the citizens of Toronto to help us identify future discussion areas.”
