Weston design conference going on now

The City of Toronto, Metrolinx and the Urban Land Institute are hosting a design conference (called a ‘charette’) about renewing Weston. The conference has been running since Tuesday, and the final presentation will be Thursday night.

According to an attendee, three areas were the focus of the workshop: The new GO station, the two apartment buildlings at the intersection of Weston and Lawrence, and the retail area long Weston Road south of Church St.

The ideas generated at the charette are meant to revitalize Weston. According to the site, the gpa; “is to provide inspiration and constructive ideas for how the Village of Weston may position itself to grow and thrive over the next decade.”

The final presentation will be on Thursday, May 5, at 6 pm, at the York West Active Living Centre, 1901 Weston Road. There will be an open house between 1:30 and 4:30.  The organizers are, according to the attendee, very receptive to new ideas and input.
