On June 20th, I had the opportunity in participating in a community meeting about the TDSB Lands at Bloor and Dufferin.The purposed of the meeting was to provide a coordinated update on the work to date (building on previous extensive, TDSB-led, community consultations) and seek feedback. Bloor and Dufferin is an important intersection in our growing city. There are 7.3 acres of Toronto District School Board (TDSB) property that have been declared surplus on the south-east corner (see area outlined in white above), and the students from Bloor CI and ALPHA II Alternative School are scheduled to relocate into a renovated Brockton by the end of 2018.
Given the strategic location of the site, its size, and the context in which it sits, the TDSB, the City of Toronto, the Province of Ontario, and other public agencies have been working together to ensure that this area is the site of a community hub. Community hubs provide a central access point for a range of needed health and social services, along with cultural, recreational, and green spaces to nourish community life.
If you would like to more information, provide feedback on the future of these sites or a recommendation for the the RFP please follow open the attached documents below:
