Walk Toronto seeks to restore Re-Imagining Yonge project in North York

Ahead of the February 2016 City Council meeting, councillor David Shiner moved in Executive Committee to defer funding included in the City budget for the Re-Imagining Yonge project. This move also jeopardized $2 million in matching funding from the Federal Government.

The Re-Imagining Yonge project would transform Yonge St. in North York into a beautiful pedestrian-friendly boulevard, with wide sidewalks, trees, a median, fewer lanes of traffic, and bike lanes. 

Walk Toronto submitted a communication to City Council calling on it to restore funding for this project.

Postscript: City Council voted 24-20 against restoring the funding. Mayor Tory was among those voting against.
