The cities High Park Movement Strategy (HPMS)

A new report about the future of the  High Park Movement Strategy (HPMS). is in process. HPMS is considering long-term improvements to the travel network (users) within High Park in order to improve the service of the park for the users and neighbourhood.  The items will emphasise safety, accessibility and the park’s ecological health and will be educated by current weekend vehicle-free program.

The report will outline the variety of travel network changes that will be done through researching, evaluating and condense the study process.   It will outline how ideas for the future of Parkside Drive are being studied in combination with the probabilities for the travel network within High Park.  This report will also include surfacing research from work to date such as information on present features and facilities, infrastructure and park usage.
The High Park Movement Strategy is currently developed through substantial meetings with stakeholder groups(active in the park), right-holders, Indigenous communities and the general public.  This report will encapsulate the feedback from the preliminary meeting and will outline future discussions.
The final report will be released early 2023 and will target the preferred set of enhancements to the High Park travel network.  Meantime, “quick win” changes that can be done in the interlude are being considered as they occur.
May 11, 2022, an Interim Report was presented to the Infrastructure and Environment Committee to provide an update on the ongoing High Park Movement Strategy.

By banning southbound car access from Bloor Street, we are saving the planet from climate change?! Who elected you people?
