In mid-March, 2018, the City of Toronto’s Transportation Services will host the second round of local mapping consultation as part of its Toronto 360 (TO360) wayfinding project. The purpose of this second and final round of consultation is to discuss draft wayfinding maps informed by feedback received in round one (please see attached sample). Specifically, the City will be seeking feedback about:
- the accuracy of the maps;
- places of interest and destinations;
- TO360 district naming.
For this second round of consultation, the City is hosting drop-in Open Houses in each of four consultation areas. Based on your organization’s area of interest, we would like to invite you to the Area 5 & 6 Open House.
When: Tuesday, March 20th
Time: 4:00 – 7:00pm — a presentation will be given at 4:00 and 5:30.
Where: East York Civic Centre, 850 Coxwell Avenue

Background on TO360
TO360 is an effort to help people find their way by making streets, neighbourhoods, and the city more legible. After the successful completion of a pilot project in the Financial District in 2015, city-wide rollout of mapping elements and signage in selected pedestrian areas is underway. During 2017 – 2018, Torontonians will see the development of a map database that will support the production of wayfinding maps. The initial focus for this work is on an area bounded roughly by Lake Ontario in the south, Royal York Road in the west, St. Clair Avenue in the north, and Warden Avenue in the east.
