Media Advisory - Waterfront Toronto to Unveil Bold New Vision of Sustainability for Lower Don Lands



    TORONTO, May 5 /CNW/ - Waterfront Toronto is holding a technical briefing
for media on May 7 to provide detailed plans for the Lower Don Lands which
have been developed through an Environmental Assessment (EA) process.
    The plans for the area take an innovative approach to naturalizing the
mouth of the Don River by moving it from the Keating Channel to Lake Ontario,
providing for the transformation of a long neglected area into sustainable new
parks and communities.
    Jointly sponsored by Waterfront Toronto, City of Toronto, and Toronto
Transit Commission, the EA has examined several alternative planning solutions
for the 125-hectare (308 acre) industrial area located south of the rail
corridor in the east end of Toronto's waterfront.
    Toronto Region and Conservation will also present the new river alignment
and innovative flood protection strategies for the Don River.
