The City Planning Division of the City of Toronto is hosting a virtual information session at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, for those who wish to learn more about the Upper Jarvis Neighbourhoods Study and to participate in a meeting to help identify what spaces and attributes of the Upper Jarvis Area are valued and what conditions could be improved.
The Upper Jarvis Neighbourhoods Study concerns lands that are designated Neighbourhoods and Apartment Neighbourhoods in the City of Toronto Official Plan in the Upper Jarvis Area Lands designated Neighbourhoods in the City of Toronto Official Plan are considered physically stable areas where new tall buildings are not permitted.
The City has received applications to amend the Official Plan to change the Neighbourhoods designation on three sites in the Upper Jarvis Area to permit the development of tall buildings.
In response to these applications, Toronto and East York Community Council directed Planning Staff to undertake a study of the Upper Jarvis Area to help evaluate these proposed developments and to develop a planning framework to help assess future development applications.
The feedback received as part of this public meeting will be used to help inform the development of a planning framework which may outline key principles for evaluating current and future development applications in the area.
This study area includes lands between Bloor Street to the north, Sherbourne Street to the east, Wellesley Street to the south, and Church Street to the west.
