Nine million dollar boost to transform Toronto as a lakeside destination.

The Toronto foreshore will get a multi-million dollar transformation, and members of the community are invited to provide input for a blueprint for the foreshore enhancement.

Council’s Property and Business Development Manager David Antcliff said this major project is the single biggest investment by Council in the foreshore precinct’s history.

Through a master plan shaped by community input, Toronto can continue to grow as a vibrant lifestyle destination with a new and improved foreshore area, more lake access and enhanced public open space and amenity,” Mr Antcliff said.

Residents, businesses and visitors are invited to a series of workshops and pop-up sessions to inform the future of the Toronto Foreshore Master Plan and give feedback on design principles and ideas for the area.

Council values community input and recognises that local knowledge is critical to the future management of the Toronto foreshore.

This engagement builds on previous consultation and site analysis work, and the identified values of the foreshore including its unique character, history, aboriginal heritage and an accessible waterfront,” Mr Antcliff said.

Feedback will inform the development of the draft Master Plan.

The Toronto Foreshore was identified as a priority for improvement in the Toronto Development Contributions Plan. Council has about $9 million in development contributions set aside to deliver foreshore improvements along the 5ha site.

Workshops will be held on Tuesday 6 August from 6-8pm and Saturday 10 August from 10am-noon at the Toronto Multi-Purpose Centre. RSVPs are essential for the community workshops.

RSVPs can be made online at www.shape.lakemac.com.au/future-toronto.

Community pop-ups will also take place near the Rotunda at Toronto Foreshore on Tuesday 6 August between 11am-1pm and 2-4pm and on Saturday 10 August between 1-3pm and 4-6pm.
