WEST QUEEN WEST PLANNING STUDY MOVEMENT ISSUES MEETING, Monday

Union Hotel in 1894

1894 Photo of the Union Hotel, S W of Dufferin and Queen. The hotel’s name and the Second Empire architectual style of all the visable buildings, express support for the American direction in government. Architecture was very political when Parkdael was built. (1) Photo: Parkdale BIA and Toronto Archives.

My thoughts on Preserving Our Historical Parkdale Village.
 
Movement
The Parkdale Queen St. Strip grew up on the main western access route to Toronto. This role formed it’s essential character and remains important to preserving it’s character.
The inevitable densification and inclusion of more bicycles and pedestrians must co-exist with streetcar and automobile passage as well as car and bicycle parking.
 
Architecture
Parkdale still contains the in tact original village along Queen Street between Gwynne Ave and Macdonell as well as between Triller and Roncesvales. Parkdale could become a prosperous tourist mecca showcasing our fascinating historical architecture from a very formative period Canada’s development.

Subject: West Queen West Planning Study – Movement Issues Meeting – March 30, 2015

 
WEST QUEEN WEST PLANNING STUDY MOVEMENT ISSUES MEETING
Bathurst Street to Roncesvalles Avenue
 
City Planning staff are continuing a study to review the policy context, built form standards and heritage character of the properties on both sides of Queen Street West from Bathurst Street to Roncesvalles Avenue. The study will also look at movement in the corridor, focus on understanding the character of the street and creating a vision for future development.
 
Please join us for a presentation and open house which will focus on movement – transit, walking, traffic, parking and cycling – in the corridor. Staff from the TTC, the Toronto Parking Authority, Transportation Services and Toronto Cycling will be on hand to share information and take your questions and comments. Feedback received at this meeting will be vital to understanding movement issues in the corridor and to help staff develop recommendations for City Council.
