King St. E. Pilot Streetscape Project

Consultation has concluded

You're invited to share your feedback on the King Street East Pilot streetscape project. The Pilot Project includes the proposed widening of the sidewalk on the north side of King Street East between Ontario Street and Mary Street North, which will allow for additional space for pedestrians, landscaping, outdoor patios/cafes, streetscape amenities and businesses.

Share your feedback on the future use of this additional space by ranking the following design options in order of your preference:

  • Option A (No Parking): proposes the permanent removal of all current parking to provide space for an outdoor patio/café in front of various business properties and the opportunity for festivals or gatherings in front of the Regent Theatre.
  • Option B (Flexible 12 Parking): proposes the use of bollards which would allow for the temporary removal of parking spaces generally in front of both the Genosha Hotel and Regent Theatre during times of high pedestrian use to allow for a café, festivals, gatherings. This option would maintain 12 potential parking spaces.
  • Option C (Reduced/Flexible 6 Parking): proposes the use of bollards which would allow for the temporary removal of parking spaces generally in front of the Regent Theatre during times of high pedestrian use to allow for a café, festivals, gatherings. This option would permanently remove the parking spaces in front of the Genosha Hotel while maintaining six potential parking spaces in front of the Regent Theatre.
