In 2008, the BIA Board of Management agreed to undertake a comprehensive streetscape audit and strategy in order to develop a framework for consistent treatment to the public realm within their boundary. A Steering Committee of the Board oversaw the development of the strategy that included input from the BIA general membership and other local stakeholders. The BIA Board subsequently adopted the Parkdale BIA Capital Design Strategy, as prepared by Urban Strategies and Victor Ford and Associates, at its February 2, 2009, meeting.
