Committee Recommendations

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee submits the item to City Council without recommendation as all motions lost on tie votes.

Origin

(September 5, 2017) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

This report responds to a request from City Council to assess the feasibility of adding the former municipality of East York logo and former municipality of Scarborough logo and/or flag to new or replacement street name signs within the boundaries of the former municipalities of East York and Scarborough.

 

The City of Toronto has an existing standard for the design of street name signage, creating a single sign that can be used throughout the City as a modern and contemporary identifying feature of public space that reflects the amalgamated City of Toronto. This standard includes opportunities for Business Improvement Area's, community, or neighbourhood branding on the 'upper blade' of the sign.

 

Adding the logos for former municipalities to new signs (and those needing replacement) is feasible. However, the Corporate Identity Program's Policy directs City staff to maintain a unified corporate identity that enables the public to clearly recognize City of Toronto facilities. Accordingly, since amalgamation, there has been an effort to clarify and simplify street name signs. Adding the logos for former municipalities would, be in conflict with the Corporate Identity Program Policy.

 

It is anticipated that City Councillors representing wards of other former municipalities (Etobicoke, North York, Toronto and York) may also wish to have logos applied to street name signs. Therefore, this report considers the feasibility and impacts of placing logos on all new and replacement street name signs across the entire city.
