Notice Of Commencement of Environmental Assessment
In conjunction with the City of Toronto and Waterfront Toronto, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is commencing a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to seek flood protection for an area of urban land near the intersection of Broadview Avenue and Eastern Avenue, north of the Metrolinx railway corridor, east of the Don River (project area). This study will build upon the outcomes of the Don Mouth Naturalization and Port Lands Flood Protection Project, and the Port Lands and South of Eastern Transportation and Servicing Master Plan, to address these 8 hectares of urban land that remains at risk to flooding under the regional storm.
For more information about this project, please visit TRCA’s website.
