(March 5, 2018) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Scarborough District and the Director, Urban Design

Summary

This report presents the conclusions and recommendations of the Scarborough Centre Public Art Master Plan (SCPAMP).

 

In July 2016, City Planning commissioned the firm of du Toit Allsopp Hillier (DTAH), in consultation with Andrew Davies Public Art Consulting (PAC), to undertake the Scarborough Centre Public Art Master Plan.  The consultants' work program included public consultation meetings, local advisory group meetings, a public art workshop with St. Andrew's Public School and a peer review from the Toronto Public Art Commission (TPAC) to solicit ideas and to gather feedback on their findings, draft plans and recommendations.

 

The purpose of the SCPAMP is to provide strategic direction for the public art program in Scarborough Centre.  The SCPAMP establishes the vision, guiding principles and framework recommendations for its public art program.  To ensure public art is long-lasting, functional, safe, economical, sustainable and beautiful, the master plan provides implementation, maintenance and conservation strategies, including funding mechanisms available, to support the Public Art Plan vision.  It reflects the regional importance of Scarborough Centre, current and emerging planning policy directions and the aspirations of the local community.  See Attachment 1: Scarborough Centre Public Art Master Plan - Executive Summary.

 

With the significant investment in civic infrastructure associated with the Scarborough Subway Extension, the emerging transportation network resulting from the Scarborough Centre Transportation Master Plan and the revised vision and planning framework stemming from the upcoming Scarborough Centre Focused Review Study, a once in a lifetime opportunity exists to create an exemplar civic vision and signature, one that embodies the highest quality in both urban community and built form design.  Public art

is an integral component of this city-building process and the Public Art Master Plan will help guide how public art contributes to and enhances the public realm in meaningful ways, contributing to identity and place-making in Scarborough Centre.
