The City of Toronto is conducting a public consultation process on a request to permit jet airplanes at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The focus of the consultation is to assess how changes to the airport would impact the city, including the ongoing revitalization of the waterfront and nearby communities on the water’s edge.

Ends: September 09 @ 9:00pm
Location: Metro Hall - Rooms 308/309, 55 John St. 6 to 7 p.m. (drop-in) 7 to 9 p.m. (workshop)
Specific issues to be considered include:
• Aviation – noise, safety and infrastructure

The public and stakeholder consultation is an essential element of the review. The findings from the consultation process will be available online after the consultation has concluded and will be used to help inform the staff review.
Staff will submit an update on this matter to the September 24 meeting of the City’s Executive Committee. A final public consultation meeting will be held in early November. The final report is scheduled to be brought forward for consideration at the December 5 meeting of the Executive Committee. Pending decisions made by the City’s Executive Committee, the final report will then go to Council for consideration.
