Urban Evolution: Exploring The Story Of Etobicoke's Forgotten Pedestrians

Jennifer Alexander and Pamela Gough

Join us for an exploration of the health benefits of walking, design considerations for making our roads safer for pedestrians, and the role of multi-modal transportation. Our community is slated for intense density along this route and we will be welcoming thousands more neighbours over the next decade which also affects our streets.

Discover how the simple act of walking not only benefits our physical health but also contributes to mental well-being and community connection. Let's discuss the positive impacts of pedestrian-friendly environments on our quality of life.

Look at where we came from, where we are now, and where we are going over the next decade.
