The final meeting in the process meant to accelerate the development of the Port Lands is taking place on May 24.
The process was begun when the Mayor Rob Ford's administration decided Toronto's waterfront development was going too slowly, and also in response to their counterplan to build a Ferris wheel.
"Up to this point, we've had two rounds of public consultation where we've engaged the public initially to talk about goals and initiatives," says Waterfront Toronto's Michelle Noble. "This meeting is to present the key findings about where we're at currently. We want public input and we're in the final stages of developing a joint report with the City of Toronto and the Toronto Region Conservation Authority."
After this meeting, a report will go to the city's executive committee in June, who will decide whether to forward it for full council and Ford consideration in July.
The May 24 public meeting will take place between 6:30pm and 9:30pm in the North Building of Metro Toronto Convention Centre (255 Front Street West) in room 105. There will also be a webcast, with participation open to all who log in.
