The Toronto Society of Architects and the City of Toronto Public Realm Office have come together to organize a public forum next week on “Creating a More Walkable Toronto – Strategies from Chicago and New York City.”
The keynote speaker will be Sam Schwartz, who was New York City’s traffic commissioner and the chief engineer for highways, bridges, ferries and other New York City infrastructure. Recently, Schwartz’s firm helped develop Chicago’s Pedestrian Plan and an America Walks guide called “Steps to a Walkable Community“. Schwartz is also the author of Gridlock Sam, a popular New York Daily News column addressing traffic matters in New York City.
The event will also be an opportunity to hear from Stephen Buckley, the new General Manager, Transportation Services, City of Toronto.
