Ontario Place Subcommittee Meeting – Public Feedback!
Ontario Place is public land owned by tax-payers and for decades, it has been a cherished symbol of our province. Earlier in January, the Provincial Government & Tourism Minister Michael Tibollo announced a proposal process for future development, which creates the possibility of Ontario Place being operated by the private sector. The award-winning park (including the Cinesphere, islands, and the pods) was on a path to revitalization, with additions such as the Bill Davis Trail and Trillium Park, but the future of the park is now uncertain.
It is crucial that the public is consulted before any development begins on Ontario Place, as it is a public asset paid for by tax-payers. The City of Toronto has created an Ontario Place sub-committee made up of Toronto and East York Community Council. Members of the public are welcome to attend, submit communications, and register to speak to share their views publicly.
The first meeting of the Subcommittee of Ontario Place will be on Tuesday March 5th at 5:30pm, City Hall, Committee Room 1. We are encouraging members of the public to attend, and to register to speak to share your views on Ontario Place. There will also be a detailed report from City staff on the history and status of Ontario Place, and more.
