The Bathurst Street to King
Street West Community Advisory Committee
looked at options to deter graffiti and beautify the existing retaining wall
on Douro Street. As this wall has already been built, there is some urgency
in improving its appearance and preventing more graffiti.
We also reached out to the larger community and received feedback from
over 100 people for the design options for the
Retaining Wall Beautification.
We used a phased approach, with the beautification of the wall as phase
1, and the beautification of the boulevard as phase 2. This allows us to
begin implementing the recommendations for phase 1 immediately. Phase 2 will
be implemented after discussion with the City as they own this parcel of
land. GO Transit has considered the recommendations provided for Phase 1 and
we will implement all the recommendations made by the committee. To learn
