Walk This Way: Redesigning downtown Yonge Street to put people first
July 2nd, 2020 from 3 PM to 3:45 PM | Zoom Webinar
A major redesign of downtown Yonge Street has been in the works for years, but has recently taken on a new urgency under COVID-19, which has highlighted the need for more and better public space in our dense neighbourhoods and along our main streets. In our upcoming webinar, “Walk This Way: redesigning downtown Yonge to put people first,” we examine new perspectives on street design, and how they can inform the City’s yongeTOmorrow project.
