Media Advisory - Technical briefing on Official Plan Amendment for Lower Don

TORONTO, June 30 /CNW/ - Waterfront Toronto is holding a technical media briefing on Monday July 5 to provide an update on its plans to transform the Lower Don Lands and renaturalize the mouth of the Don River which are going to Toronto City Council on July 6/7 for adoption.

Waterfront Toronto, in conjunction with the City of Toronto and Toronto and Region Conservation, is seeking Council's authorization to submit all the necessary planning documents that would ultimately result in an Official Plan Amendment for the Lower Don Lands plans. The Official Plan Amendment would pave the way for future revitalization of the area including rerouting the river, building flood protection and ultimately building new communities.
