“Reset TO” – March 18, 2014 Open House and Public Meeting at Etobicoke Civic Centre. Also that day: Lakeview Waterfront Community Workshop

Text from City of Toronto website

The following text, featuring information about upcoming Open Houses, is from the Reset TO page at the City of Toronto website (the page also includes a a Reset TO toolkit in PDF format):

  • To “reset” means to begin again with the same basic principles or context while following a different process. Currently, development is reviewed on a site-by-site basis, which often forces the needs and vision of local neighbourhoods to adjust or keep pace with ongoing new development. The Development Permit System intends to “reset” the planning process by focusing on area-based plans and rules that reflect local character and distinctiveness.
  • This process begins with community consultation that will result in a planned vision for the selected area. The Development Permit System will then be applied to ensure that development is in keeping with the local needs expressed through the community’s planned vision and objectives. The result will be a more comprehensive planning process in which outcomes are predictable and align with the expectations of the community.
