Lisgar Square Working Group
(With Active18 – local citizen activist planning group)
Lisgar Square Working Group. 2005 – 2016
Active18, local citizens activist planning group worked for years with City Councillors, Private Developers, City Parks department, City Planning and Urban design departments and local concerned citizens to conceptualize PUBLIC SPACE to be saved in a precinct of Toronto that was to be over-developed with condos.
No one was asking for Public Space to be integrated into a development area which would be adding 6-8,000 new residents.
Active18 went to bat to ensure the city purchased some land to be saved as public space.
