PARK LAWN GO STATION

First Capital (FCR) has proposed to build a new GO Station to be developed in partnership with Metrolinx and located at the north end of the former Mr. Christie Cookie Factory, municipally known as 2150 Lake Shore Boulevard West. The proposed GO Station is envisioned to be on both sides of the Lakeshore West rail corridor, and both sides of Park Lawn Road in the City of Toronto. The proposed GO Station is anticipated to evolve into a multi-modal transportation hub that would provide improved local and regional transit access and connectivity. GO Transit currently operates train service along the Lakeshore West Corridor, from Union Station in Toronto to West Harbour in Hamilton and Niagara Falls. The Proposed GO Station has the opportunity to provide a stop along the Lakeshore West rail corridor between the Mimico and Exhibition GO Stations.

THE PROCESS

The Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08 under the Environmental Assessment Act, has commenced for the Park Lawn GO Station. The TPAP is a proponent-driven, self-assessment process that provides a defined framework to follow in order to complete the accelerated assessment of the potential environmental effects and decision-making within the up to 120-day regulated assessment timeline. Following this period, the regulation provides an additional 30-day public and agency review, and a further 35-day Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) review. As part of the TPAP, an Environmental Project Report (EPR) is being prepared.
