Feeling Congested: phase two of public consultation underway

Posted on July 2nd, by Move the GTHA in Civic Engagement, Discussion. 1 Comment

The City of Toronto’s “Feeling Congested” has launched its second phase of public consultation called “Making Sounds Decisions.” The program launched this round with the Feeling Congested toolkit, public meetings including “meetings-on-the-move” and a video featuring Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat.

Phase Two asks for public input on top performing rapid transit projects, bicycle policy framework and complete streets. From evaluating which rapid transit projects should be a priority, to establishing key cycling principles, Phase Two of the consultation delves into more specific projects and principles to guide transportation planning in the city.

You can download the toolkit and submit your comments by July 30 to have your say on complete streets in the City of Toronto.

Through Phase One, Feeling Congested consulted over 7,000 residents on revenue tools for investing in public transportation in the region, checkout the results from Phase One.

  1. Would this be a good place to mention how disappointed I am with the recent push to extend the Danforth subway into Scarborough and scrap the planned the LRT line? This is all still up in the air, of course, but the fact that we as a city are yet again seeing a potential delay in transit construction as well as throwing away millions of dollars in signed contracts and years of planning is incredibly frustrating. We are saddled with a mayor who is patently clueless about transit issues, and we have government representatives at both the municipal and provincial levels who are using this subway extension as a callow and near-blatant jockeying for votes, regardless of the real transit needs of the city. Who is really in charge of transit expansion? Why is it no one can seem to decide how we are going to raise money for new transit, let alone figure out how to plan it and, most importantly, STICK TO THE PLANS LONG ENOUGH TO SEE SOMETHING GET BUILT. At this point the only real transit option for most of the city remains the car, and until there is real leadership in getting things built without arguing and politicking them to death, I see no reason to be optimistic about Toronto’s transit future.
