Origin

(April 17, 2018) Report from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

This report recommends adoption of the Downtown Plan Official Plan Amendment (OPA), which includes amendments to Section 2.2.1 and Map 6 of the Official Plan, and a new Downtown Plan.  Future amendments to existing Secondary Plans and Site and Area Specific Policies located within the Downtown area are recommended to be implemented once the OPA comes into force and effect.  This amendment – in conjunction with infrastructure strategies that address water, energy, mobility, parks and public realm and community services and facilities – is the result of a three-year study, TOcore: Planning Downtown, and will set the direction for Downtown Toronto over the next 25 years.  As part of the City of Toronto’s Five Year Official Plan Review under Section 26 of the Planning Act, this OPA is a component of the work program to bring the Official Plan into conformity with the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017 (the "Growth Plan").
