Davenport Diamond February 2016 Update

Metrolinx has issued Notice of Commencement for the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) on the Davenport Diamond Grade Separation. A TPAP is a six month streamlined environmental assessment process to expedite the development of transit projects. The first four months of this process is when the proponent (Metrolinx) needs to formally consult stakeholders including the public and document those findings in an Environmental Project Report (EPR). To find out more about the TPAP process please click here to read an in-depth guide from the Province of Ontario.

The drop-in sessions are taking place on Wednesday February 24 from 11am to 1pm at the Perth-Dupont Library (1589 Dupont St), Friday February 26 from 11:30am to 1:30pm at MPP Cristina Martin's Office (1199 Bloor St W), and on Saturday February 27 from 12pm to 2pm at the Perth-Dupont Library (1589 Dupont St). It is also my understanding that they will be organizing a public meeting to discuss this project further. 

The Bloor Improvement Group (BIG) has also organized a meeting for Metrolinx and two different residents groups to present to the community about the work that they are currently doing. There will also be a question and answer session for the benefit of those attending. The meeting is being held on Wednesday March 2 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the New Horizons Tower (1140 Bloor St W).

I have been working hard in advocating for the best possible outcome for our community ever since Metrolinx proposed this project back in March 2015. To see my previous updates on this project please click here. I encourage you to participate in this process, to ask any questions that you may have, and to share your thoughts with Metrolinx as part of the TPAP process.
