We know that the construction of the Finch West LRT is coming - and there are serious concerns. That is why businesses, residents and organizations across Finch Avenue West have taken this opportunity to come together to re-imagine our underutilized spaces and turn them into the community assets we deserve. Much like the successful push to get City Council to support the idea of building a Jane and Finch Community Hub, this plan is the result of years of rigorous and ongoing dialogue.
Residents, local businesses, entrepreneurs and Business Improvement Areas across northwest Toronto have told us that they fear the construction disruption will cost them their livelihoods, as they have seen on Eglinton and St. Clair West. People must be able to access the local goods and services they rely on. Emergency services also need a reliable pathway to bypass gridlock and save lives. A wide pathway - a Mobility Greenway - will be open for use as soon as each section is completed – years in advance of the Finch West LRT.
Join us in supporting the Our Greenway plan and help us unlock the Community Benefits that our communities deserve!
