Your opinions on 2024 budget & micromobility wanted
Two new City surveys

2024 Budget Survey

From November 1 to 30, 2023, Toronto residents are invited to share their ideas about the City’s 2024 Budget and Toronto’s future in virtual and in-person consultations and through an online survey available on the City’s 2024 Budget webpage.
Take the budget survey
The financial challenges faced by the City are real and impact the 2024 Budget and beyond. The City faces difficult financial decisions, including a projected $1.5 billion operating shortfall in the 2024 Budget and a $46.5 billion shortfall in the next ten years.

Urgent action must be taken to ensure a more stable and sustainable future for Toronto.

For more details or to register for one of the in-person or virtual consultations, visit the City’s 2024 Budget webpage. There are 5 in-person consultations - the local ones are on Saturday, November 25, noon to 1:30 p.m. or 1:30 to 3 p.m., at the Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St. The Avenue Road Safety Coalition will be making a presentation at 12 noon. Try to attend. 

Mayor Chow and Toronto City Council will use the feedback to help inform decision making at the City and to support discussions with the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada to secure a new deal for Toronto.

The results will be presented to the Budget Committee when the 2024 Budget launches on January 10, 2024 and will accompany the Budget Committee’s recommendations to Mayor Chow for the Mayor’s budget, which will be released by February 1, 2024.
City survey on micromobility

The City of Toronto is seeking public feedback on the use of micromobility, e.g. bikes, e-bikes and other small vehicles. The results from this survey will be used to develop a city-wide strategy for micromobility, including what new forms might be allowed in future. The survey will be open until December 13, 2023.
Take the survey on micromobility
Micromobility describes small, compact, low-speed vehicles that are lighter weight than cars, which can include bicycles, cargo bikes/trikes, folding bikes, electric two, three, or four-wheeled cycles, urban mobility vehicles (i.e. small, one-person e-cars), e-mopeds, electric kick-scooters (e-scooters), and more.
In July 2023 City Council directed staff to 
develop a micromobility strategy.

The strategy will clarify what types of micromobility are allowed to be used and where, and will address key opportunities and challenges that micromobility presents. Key issues include safety and the interaction of vehicles of different mass and speed, infrastructure considerations, education and enforcement (e.g. addressing illegal sidewalk riding and illegal blocking of bike lanes and cycle tracks).
