More specifically, the Toronto Skateboarding Committee is to be working alongside the City in the development of the Recreational Facilities Plan. Their involvement in this city planning project will give the skateboarding community a stronger voice in Toronto and the GTA. The Toronto Skateboarding Committee will have tremendous influence on which urban planning projects are to be taken up in terms of the skatepark construction and maintenance. This opens a window of hope for updates to be made to the current skateparks of Toronto. This news also opens the possibility for new skateparks to be built  and new programs to be launched.
