Liberty Village has one of the most concentrated urban centres in the city of Toronto, both from an employment and residential perspective. Traffic congestion is a significant challenge in the area, along with the need for dedicated pedestrian and cycling routes. The LVBIA is committed in advancing the action of building a new road and promenade on the south end of Liberty Village. The road, which is included in the Masterplan, has the support of the LVRA (Residents Association), both local Councilors and the City. It will cater to all modes of transportation including cycling, walking, transit and vehicle traffic. The LVBIA through championing this initiative and the creative aspects to the overall concept, envisions the completion of this project as a key part in nurturing the vibrancy of Liberty Village.
