LAKESHORE CORRIDOR - GET MOVING! The TOPCA Town Hall Meeting & AGM took place on:  November 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm at Clarke Hall in Port Credit (Agenda is shown in the sidebar at right).  We invited West Village Partners to address the meeting using their site development proposal as a Case Study for future mobility...

CASE STUDY:  The West Village Port Credit mixed-use development proposed for the 72-acre brownfield in the midst of our waterfront village will be transformative.  Successful integration with the surrounding community will require bold innovations – both on and off-site – in support of mobility.  What is proposed to enable 5000 new residents, along with 1000’s of daytime employees, shoppers, and park visitors to move along an already gridlocked Lakeshore Corridor?
