Toronto (November 24, 2014)
– The Toronto Port Authority is undertaking an environmental assessment of Porter Airline’s proposal to introduce new-technology jet aircraft and extend the main runway at the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
A public meeting will take place to: provide information and discussion on the purpose of the environmental assessment; review the areas to be studied and the process by which this study will be completed; offer an overview of how the public can participate throughout the process; and provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions and submit comment.
Meeting Details:
Tuesday, December 9, 2014
6:30 – 9:30pm
Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building, Room 107
255 Front Street West
The environmental assessment is one of three Toronto Port Authority-led studies that are being undertaken at the request of Toronto City Council to provide information relating to the Porter proposal. The environmental assessment will be delivered in two steps, with the first step focusing on developing the scope, and the second step focusing on implementation of the scope. Consultation with the public and stakeholders will be an important part of both steps.
The Toronto Port Authority, its technical consultants, and the independent facilitation team will document all public and stakeholder feedback throughout the process and this documentation will be made available to the public.
