Ward 14 is a unique and vibrant community in Toronto. How will it look in 10, 20 or 30 years? Planning for the future means setting priorities for our community, and making sure changes to our neighbourhoods are consistent with our vision for a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous community.

Working with City Planning, I continue to work to ensure the highest standard is met for public input and consultation, to ensure development is to scale, mixed use and helps contribute to a more inclusive Ward 14. Together with the community, Toronto-Danforth has been the subject of several planning studies, which were the result of years of consultation and input from our community.

A significant accomplishment was securing the Red Door Shelter’s new home in a new development on Queen St. East. Upon hearing that the Red Door Shelter was facing relocation, I worked with the City, the developers, the shelter and thousands of residents to push for a breakthrough solution to keep these families in our community. My sincere hope is that this becomes an example for the City as we work to plan complete communities.

Danforth study 'most comprehensive' of its kind

February 11, 2020 By David Nickle, Toronto.com
It is, according to Toronto-Danforth Coun. Paula Fletcher, the biggest and most comprehensive planning study of its kind: a review of more than six kilometres of one of Toronto's best-known roadways, Danforth Avenue, between Victoria Park and Broadview Avenues. "There's nobody in Ontario who doesn't know where the Danforth is," said Fletcher.

The Danforth Study

The City of Toronto is inviting all members of the Danforth community to participate in a public consultation as a part of the Danforth Avenue Complete Street and Planning Study.

The first meeting was held November 6th and included a brief presentation about the study followed by interactive group discussion. Feedback from the first  community will help shape the scope of the study.  You can download that presentation by clicking here.

Proposal to force building more affordable housing falls short, advocates say

SAMANTHA BEATTIE, Staff Reporter Tues., Jan. 23, 2018

Inclusionary zoning would allow municipalities to force developers to create affordable housing units. However, many city councillors and housing advocates say if the province keeps its draft legislation as is it will miss an opportunity.

A homeless shelter is the first place Fazanah Khair Mohammad, her husband and five children lived when they arrived in Canada from Tajikistan.

City of Toronto consulting on laneway suites

The City's laneway suites study called Changing Lanes gets underway with a public consultation meeting on Thursday, November 30 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the Council Chamber at Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W. The study will consider permitting laneway suites in Toronto and East York.

A laneway suite is a dwelling unit situated on the same lot as a detached house, semi-detached house or townhouse which is completely detached from the main house. It would generally be located behind an existing house with a laneway and be smaller in scale than the main house on the lot.

Social Inclusion in Planning

"Social inclusion is so important, I want to thank everybody for raising that...You shouldn't give up on social inclusion as part of planning."

"Whatever we're doing now isn't working for social inclusion...I'd like us to think how we can take a step as well, as a committee...What other steps can we take that force this issue out further."
