Local Mapping Workshop
Are you an expert in our neighbourhood? Do you love telling people about local landmarks and hidden gems? Are you interested in helping make walking in Toronto easier? Then please join a local mapping workshop and help inform the rollout of Toronto 360 (TO360), the City of Toronto’s pedestrian wayfinding strategy.
In early November, the City’s Transportation Services Division is hosting four separate local stakeholder consultation events to inform detailed mapping for TO360— please refer to the attached map to see the detailed boundaries of the areas that will be mapped in each workshop.
The dates, times, and locations for these workshops are:
|North York Centre||Monday, Nov 5||4:00 – 7:00pm||North York Central Library — Meeting Room #1|
5120 Yonge Street
|Midtown||Tuesday, Nov 6||6:30 – 9:30pm||North Toronto Collegiate Institute— Cafeteria|
17 Broadway Avenue
|Scarborough Centre||Wednesday, Nov. 7||4:00 – 7:00pm||Scarborough Civic Centre — Committee Room #1|
150 Borough Drive
|Yonge North||Thursday, Nov 8||4:00 – 7:00pm||Agricola Lutheran Church— Basement|
25 Old York Mills Road
You can attend any of the workshops that cover an area in which you have interest or expertise. The same presentation will be given at the start and halfway through each workshop, so you may wish to time your arrival accordingly (the attachment includes a detailed breakdown of the agenda for each workshop). You can also drop in at any point during the workshop – it is not necessary to be present for the full duration.
About the workshops
The November workshops are the first of two planned rounds of local area stakeholder consultation. The purpose of this first round of consultation is to share and seek feedback on draft wayfinding maps. Specifically, we will be seeking feedback about:
- the accuracy of the maps;
- places of interest and destinations;
- major pedestrian routes and barriers; and
- District and Mini District names.
The feedback from this consultation will inform the development of refined wayfinding maps (which will be the focus of the second round of consultation) and inform future sign placement.
If you are able to attend, please RSVP by contacting Casey Craig, third party facilitator with Swerhun Inc., at: [email protected] or 416 572 4365. When you RSVP, please include your name, your organization, and which meeting(s) you’re planning on attending.
TO360 is an effort to help people find their way by making streets, neighbourhoods, and the city more legible. Last year, the City began a 5-year rollout of mapping and signage in select pedestrian areas after the successful completion of a pilot project in the Financial District in 2015. The City is currently in Year Two of the rollout, which is focusing on mapping the area centred on Yonge Street from St. Clair Avenue to Steeles Avenue as well as Scarborough Centre. We have attached a sample of detailed mapping produced in another part of the city. To learn more, please visit www.toronto.ca/wayfinding.
