City councilors will debate an amended plan for the area along the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.  The Eglinton Connects plan would create a “Complete Street” that would provide an “active mix of transportation options for all users” states the report.  The plan calls for sidewalks to be widened making room for big trees, street furniture, patios and retail zones. 

The Eglinton Connects plan would also provide protected lanes for cyclists, and an extended network of rear laneway that will be situated at the rear of all new buildings to avoid issues on Eglinton.  The plan also calls for on-street parking to be maintained which is raising questions about vehicular traffic in the area given that would likely mean that vehicles will be forced to use a single lane in each direction. 

City Council will debate the plan during its regular monthly meeting which begins on Tuesday.
