The City held an open house event on April 12th to present a draft of the North York Corridor Streetscape Plan.
The North York Corridor is a 1.8 mile stretch of North York Street that begins at North Avenue (south end) and extends to Grand Avenue. It is considered the City’s northern gateway into the community and the Downtown. A corridor plan for North York was adopted by City Council in June of 2015. Developing a Streetscape Plan for the Corridor is a key recommendation of the Plan.
During the open house event, property and business owners as well as all members of the public reviewed the plan and address any questions or comments with City Staff and the City’s hired consultants, 3D Design and Gewalt Hamilton.
The plan will help form the character of North York Street by defining the quality of the street and its visual effects including lighting, landscaping and sidewalks. Once the North York Corridor Streetscape Plan is adopted, the City will use it as a guide for change in this area.
