The Chief Planner Roundtable, an initiative of the City Planning division, is a public forum for Torontonians to discuss key city-building challenges. Civic leaders and industry professionals familiar with the discussion topics convene for each roundtable session to review challenges, opportunities and objectives, and to identify a path forward for resolution of the issues at hand.
Residents and members of the public are encouraged to participate by attending the sessions in person or watching them live streamed via the internet, and by submitting comments and questions by Twitter or comment cards.
The inaugural Chief Planer Roundtable series was held in the Spring 2013. The three topics examined at that time were: Our Urban Fabric, The Resilient City, and the Next Generation Suburbs. The Action Document from this series can be found at www.toronto.ca/planning/chiefplannerroundtable/pdf/roundtable-web-1.pdf.
The next series of Chief Planner Roundtables are planned for the Fall 2013. All three roundtables will focus on specific issues and challenges facing Toronto’s suburbs. Below are the topics, dates, and locations for each roundtable.
*The Shape of Toronto’s Suburbs takes place on September 30, 2013 in Committee Room 2 at City Hall, located at 100 Queen Street West.
*Arrival City: The Suburbs as Global City Landing Spot takes place on October 28, 2013 in Council Chambers at City Hall, located at 100 Queen Street West.
