The numbers for Islands users are small during the winter and they have the options to take vehicles to/from the Islands at a cost. The summer numbers will be a few 100's since a number of water taxis will be use by victors than use the ferry.Anyways, to echo what drum said: concerns around infilling slips, loading and unloading cars, water taxis (I’d no idea so many people used them?!)
Someone advocated for just waiting a little while longer. Someone else said that maybe we wouldn’t need changes given that leasing of current buildings may be slow...
I feel like staff have to have the patience of saints to be at those consultations.
At the end of the day, less than 3% less use the water taxis or to drop stuff off and that pushing it. There is an area on the east side of the hotel now that will still be there with this infill to allow for large items to be delivery to the Island or small things.
I know a number of the team since 2004 and they have a hard time biting their tongue from saying what they really want to say at these meetings. This applies to others meetings not by Waterfront Toronto or the city or not related to transit.
Anyway, best for folks to send in comments regardless what it is, as more in put from the public, the faster we will see this line built as well changes for the better.
