Sorry for the late notice, but we were only recently made aware of this survey related to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA). The survey is open until end of day October 11. Although, this issue is ostensibly outside of the Cabbagetown area, flight paths can affect us here and we encourage all residents to take part in these important city discussions.
The City of Toronto is holding a public consultation on a request to permit jet airplanes at BBTCA which will require a runway extension. The focus of the consultation will be to assess how changes to the airport would affect the City, including the ongoing revitalization of our waterfront, and the nearby communities on the water’s edge. Specific issues to be considered include:
· Aviation – noise, safety and infrastructure
· Economic Impacts
· Land Use and Community Impacts
· Marine Navigation, Coastal and Habitat Assessments
· Public Health Impacts
· Transportation Impacts
This online survey has been developed to provide members of the public with an opportunity to provide their views and suggestions on the topics, issues and opportunities related to this airport.
An Information Booklet, background documents, and other studies/reports are posted on-line at www.toronto.ca/bbtca_review.
