Lawton Parkette Public Meeting Update

On Thursday, May 28 at 7 pm, I hosted a public meeting regarding improvements to the Lawton Parkette at Yonge and Heath Streets. The community came to a clear consensus on the direction for the final design.

Existing Features

 

 

 

Concept One

 

 

 

Concept Two

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a final preferred concept design, the community chose a hybrid of the two concepts presented. The key features will be as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • General layout as shown in Preliminary Concept Two with revisions including:
  • Replacing the isolated seating area at the north end of the site with the new stairs c/w railing and path connection from Preliminary Concept One;
  • Relocating the existing armourstone blocks to continue to provide seating at the south end of the site;
  • Consider including a second picnic table; and
  • Ensure to maintain the existing trash and recycling receptacles on-site.
