TORONTO'S GREEN STREETS Technical
Guidelines (GSTG) is a precedent-setting
document that directs the integration of
Green Infrastructure (GI) into Toronto's
streets. The study process comprised an
intensive two-year effort that included
precedent research, review of other
municipal guidelines, interviews and
various consultations.

Toronto's portfolio of streets is both
complex and diverse, and the potential
to implement GI initiatives effectively is
dependent upon a range of biophysical
and contextual variables. The GSTG was
conceived with a clear emphasis on guiding
the practical implementation of GI options
in consideration of the implications of these
variables. In response, two interactive
"Selection Tools" were invented. The
"GI Selection Tool" was developed to
simplify the process of identifying the
optimal GI options for any given section
of street, identifying options for both
new construction and road rehabilitation
projects using 11 selection parameters.
The "Vegetation Selection Tool" was
developed to identify the most appropriate
plant species for a specific GI option. Both
selection tools are interactive and serve

LE DOCUMENT GREEN STREETS
Technical Guidelines (GSTG) de Toronto
est un document qui établit un précédent
en matière d'intégration de l'infrastructure
verte (IV). L'étude s'est déroulée sur une
période intensive de deux ans et a comporté
les éléments suivants.
Le réseau de rues de Toronto est à la fois
complexe et diversifié, et le potentiel de mise
en œuvre efficace d'initiatives d'IV dépend
d'un éventail de variables biophysiques
et contextuelles. Le GSTG a été conçu en
mettant clairement l'accent sur l'orientation
de la mise en œuvre pratique des options
en matière d'IV. En réponse, deux outils
de sélection interactifs ont été inventés.
L'outil de sélection de l'IV a été développé
pour simplifier le processus d'identification
des options d'infrastructure verte selon
11 paramètres. L'outil de sélection de la
végétation a été développé pour identifier
les espèces végétales les plus appropriées.
Les deux outils interactifs servent de
mécanisme objectif et factuel pour la prise
de décisions. Les deux sont adaptables et
peuvent être modifiés pour être utilisés par
d'autres municipalités.
