Online Survey (closes Thurs December 14th)
The Major Street study is one component of the City’s Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods (EHON) initiative. This study focuses on permitting gentle density – missing middle housing – on major streets in low-rise neighbourhoods across Toronto.
The City is working to expand opportunities for “missing middle” housing forms in Toronto, ranging from duplexes to low-rise walk-up apartments. Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods is one solution among a range of City initiatives to increase housing choice and access and create a more equitable, sustainable city.
Potential Impact to our neighbourhood: if passed, this could mean that townhomes and small scale apartment complexes [possibly as high as 6 storeys and 30 units] along Kipling, Islington and Burnhamthorpe
Vehicular access to these complexes could be from laneway or abutting residential street

The City is working to make travel by bike safer and more inviting, which helps ease congestion, creates a cleaner environment, and promotes physical activity. One way to achieve this goal is by building bikeways, like physically separated cycle tracks, bike lanes, neighbourhood routes, and paved multi-use trails. Together, all these bikeways make Toronto’s Cycling Network.
The City wants to hear from you to help us make recommendations on which bikeways to build, upgrade and study in 2025 to 2027
