EX13.23 - Expanding the Designated Waterfront Area to include Etobicoke Creek, Don River and Humber River
- Decision Type:
- Deferred Indefinitely
The Executive Committee deferred the item indefinitely.
City Council on February 3 and 4, 2016, referred Motion MM12.3 to the Executive Committee.
The "designated waterfront area" in the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation Act includes some of Toronto's river systems and their tributaries that flow into Lake Ontario, but not all. Currently only Mimico Creek, Highland Creek and Rouge River are part of the designated waterfront area.
By including all of Toronto's river systems and their tributaries that flow into Lake Ontario, Waterfront Toronto would be provided with the opportunity for further revitalization opportunities in these vital City areas. It would also further demonstrate the City of Toronto's commitment to building a sustainable, resilient city with a focus on connectivity through the City's vast network of trails and paths.
