Laird in Focus is a study led by the City of Toronto City Planning Division that will develop a planning framework to guide future development of the Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue East area. The study will refine and build upon the existing planning structure as well as recent planning initiatives undertaken in the area.

The purpose of this meeting is to engage the community in the  review of alternative development options prepared by the consulting team through the input received through public consultation and at the design charrette held in June 2017.
