Yonge Love is a creative community consultation on the future of Downtown Yonge

Yonge Street is changing.

We want to hear from you about where it’s headed.

A 2014 project of the Downtown Yonge BIA, Yonge Love will be engaging Torontonians in a conversation about the neighbourhood through a series of content and initiatives – sharing the stories of its past, surveying its present, and imagining its future. What do you love about Downtown Yonge? What needs to change? How do we continue to make this neighbourhood one of the best in the world in which to live, work, play and learn?

Where is this all going?

Everything we learn through this process will be collected, studied and synthesized, to help shape a new planning & development strategy for the future of Downtown Yonge, and will inform our ongoing advocacy work at the Downtown Yonge BIA.

Join the conversation.

Have a Yonge Street story, observation or idea to share? Share it in the discussions that emerge around Yonge Love articles and videos we’ll be releasing throughout the year, or use our Share A Story form and we might include it on the Yonge Love site.
