Round One Consultations on Sidewalk Labs’ draft MIDP

In July 2019, Waterfront Toronto initiated the first of two rounds of public consultations across Toronto to seek feedback on the MIDP. The first round of consultation focused on orienting the public to the 1,500+ page submission from Sidewalk Labs from the perspective of Waterfront Toronto—the public steward of waterfront revitalization working with all three levels of government.

Round one consultations consisted of 4 identical major public consultations, 7 information sessions at Toronto Public Libraries across the city, an online consultation and written submissions until July 31, 2019. Written submissions and the online consultation are still open until Fall 2019, but anything received after the round one deadline will not be included in the consultation summary Feedback Report.

The following are videos of the full public consultation that took place on Saturday, July 20, 2019:
