Street A EA
The City of Toronto has authorized Lakeshore Developments Inc. (LDI) to be the Proponent to undertake a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) for Street A, a proposed new public street and associated rail underpass between Park Lawn Road and Lake Shore Boulevard West in the City of Toronto.
The Street A EA Study Area is shown below.
The City of Toronto recently undertook the Park Lawn Lake Shore Transportation Master Plan (TMP) which identified Street A and the associated rail underpass as a Schedule C project. The TMP is completing Phases 1 and 2 of the MCEA process.
Street A is being identified as a Schedule C road project in the TMP. The Street A Schedule C EA Study will satisfy Phases 3 and 4 of the MCEA process.
The Street A EA Study is being undertaken following the “integrated approach” (outlined in Section A.2.9 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process) in co-ordination with the 2150 Lake Shore Blvd West Plan of Subdivision application (Application Numbers: 20 146488 WET 03 OZ, 20 146496 WET 03 SB, and 22 131744 WET 03 SA) on the former Christie Lands, in order to satisfy both Environmental Assessment Act and Planning Act requirements. Part of the land required for Street A extends beyond the boundaries of the Plan of Subdivision application and are needed to serve the proposed development.
The Street A EA Study will develop a detailed inventory of existing conditions, develop and evaluate street and underpass design alternatives, identify a preferred design alternative, assess potential impacts, and identify reasonable mitigation measures.
The City and LDI are holding a public consultation meeting to introduce the Street A EA Study. The City and LDI value the voices and opinions of community members and other interested parties, and are dedicated to having an open, transparent, accessible and inclusive dialogue with the public, stakeholders and Indigenous communities.
Public consultation meetings provide the public with an opportunity to hear project updates, provide input, and ask questions. You are invited to attend the first public consultation meeting open house which will focus on: summary of background information and existing conditions; initial design alternatives; and draft evaluation framework. The EA Study process will also include other opportunities for the public and stakeholders to inform the EA Study and outcomes.
