On May 28, 2020 Council approved a proposal for a number of new bikeway and complete street installations across the City, called ActiveTO. The projects were a response to the imminent need for: Better use of the right of way in the context of Covid-19; Support for local businesses by improving access options, and creating an environment to support expanded patios; Support for physical distancing for walking and cycling; Alternatives for people who are not comfortable taking transit.
In order to deliver a pandemic-responsive design, staff had to act quickly and focus detailed design engagement efforts on businesses, predominantly through BIAs.
