City of Toronto – Urban Design Policy Development

The City of Toronto’s Urban Design Policy Development Background Research consisted of five separate research components designed to gather feedback on the current Urban Design Official Plan policies and to solicit ideas on how to strengthen new policies related to public realm, walkability, built form, public spaces, etc. CUI undertook a detailed research and consultation program – including a jurisdictional scan, interviews and discussions with internal and external stakeholders – in order to provide the City with the information required to inform updates to the urban design policies in the Official Plan. The built environment, walkability, safety, accessibility and creating exceptional public realm were key topics of the report.
