Origin

(January 4, 2018) Report from the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture

Summary

The purpose of this report is to recommend that the area shown in Attachment No. 1 be designated as the Yonge and St. Clair Business Improvement Area (BIA).

 

In accordance with Chapter 19 of the City of Toronto Municipal Code, the City Clerk conducted a poll to determine if there is sufficient support to designate the area along Yonge Street bounded by Woodlawn Avenue to the south and Heath Street to the north, and the area along St. Clair Avenue from Avoca Avenue in the east to Avenue Road in the west, as the Yonge and St. Clair BIA.

 

The City received a sufficient number of ballots to validate the poll and the majority of accepted ballots were in favour of establishing a BIA. Accordingly, it is recommended that City Council pass a by-law to designate the area described in the map in Attachment No. 1 as the Yonge and St. Clair BIA. Subject to Council's approval, this will be the City's eighty-third BIA.
