DEVELOPMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY
DESIGN YOUR MAIN STREET
New developments are popping up all over our beloved community, but the Junction is one of the only local neighbourhoods that has not had a City paid planning study to help inform development. Parkdale, Roncy and Bloor West have had these studies done but in 2020 this request was rejected by City Council due to no budget allocation.
YOUR VOICE AND VISION MATTERS
We want to raise the funds for an architectural study to provide Junction residents with a design for change in our community. The study will:
engage the community and review feedback from you and your neighbours
prepare for and facilitate meetings to identify aspirations of our community
develop the design for Dundas Street.
produce a tool we can use to lobby the Councillor's office to inform the Official Plan policies that impact our community
PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY
Please make a donation today to help fund this study and bring our collective vision to life. Together we can create a Junction main street that we can be proud to live and work in!
