Planning for the Central Waterfront is a collaborative process that will continue throughout the project – even during construction.
Since the Innovative Design Competition in 2006, Waterfront Toronto has worked closely with community stakeholder groups, landowners and the general public. Over the years we have held waterfront tours, workshops, working groups, stakeholder and public meetings.
During Queens Quay construction, Waterfront Toronto will use a number of different ways to engage in effective two-way communication with stakeholders including:
The Queens Quay Construction Liaison Committee (CLC) provides a forum for residents, businesses and neighbourhood groups in the vicinity of the project area to discuss construction related issues. The committee meets with the project team and construction manager on a monthly basis to learn about upcoming construction plans and to give input on any impacts the community may be experiencing
CLC members are committed to representing their communities/groups by providing feedback, advice and recommendations to the project team. If you have an issue you would like to raise or if you would like to learn more about Queens Quay construction, contact your CLC representative. The CLC includes a representative of every condo on Queens Quay as well as a strong representative of business and advocacy groups. Click here for the list of CLC members.
After the Environmental Assessment was approved in 2010, Waterfront Toronto established the Queens Quay Working Group to give interested stakeholders an opportunity to provide input during the detailed design process. The Working Group met monthly from July 2010 until planning for construction began in earnest in late 2011. As part of its mandate, the Working Group provided feedback on topics such as streetscape design, bus management strategy, wayfinding and signage, traffic planning and construction phasing.
