Over the last eight-month program, participants of the Urban Leadership Program have been working in teams and sharing their expertise and advice to develop recommendations. The program has been developed by a multidisciplinary expert team led by former City of Toronto Chief Planner Paul Bedford. Leaders had the opportunity to collaborate with top industry peers from various real estate disciplines, to engage in solving real land use challenges within a defined region of Toronto District involving key stakeholders from the private, public, and non-profit community sectors.
On Saturday June 17th participants shared their vision and action plans to the community looking at 2 sites: LOBLAWS site (Roncesvalles and Dundas) and the TTC Site (Lansdowne and Wallace). The Challenge was a unique opportunity to break down traditional barriers of city building by thinking, acting and planning differently. The prime expectation from all participants is to collaborate to produce a new way to achieve positive change.
