On August 20, 2013 the City Planning Division launched a month-long outreach initiative called "Planners in Public Spaces" (PiPS). The initiative consisted of a series of pop-up City Planning information booths at various events across the city, where residents could learn about planning issues, understand what planners do, ask questions, and find out how they can get more involved in planning their city.
Thank you Toronto to everyone who participated in the inaugural Planners in Public Spaces (PiPS) events. The City Planning Division reached over 1,700 of people during twenty events in just under two months. More importantly, we heard from you about what your concerns are as well as what you love about this City.
Stay tuned for more information on how PiPS will grow in exciting new directions and how we will incorporate more creative public consultation opportunities into the work we do every day.
