Metrolinx commissioned MASS to assemble a 36-resident reference panel who deliberated over a series of meetings on recommendations to help inform the design and delivery of the Davenport Community Rail Overpass project.


Note: the following entry is a stub. Please help us complete it. 


Problems and Purpose 

The Citizens' Reference Panel "was tasked with learning about transportation planning and processes, weighing design options and approaches, and proposing a set of values, priorities, and detailed recommendations" on a rail overpass in the Toronto community of Davenport. [1]

Background History and Context 

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities 

Participant Recruitment and Selection 

Methods and Tools Used 

This case is an example of a Citizens' Reference Panel, which refers to "a non-compulsory public jury used in Canada to provide policy advice to public and elected officials. They are generally convened by the government or a public agency and typically meet several times over a period of weeks or months to learn about, discuss, and reach agreement (or alignment) on a contentious public issue."[2]
