Open House: Wellington Community Design Plan

Event Date: May 12, 2010

Event Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Location: Connaught Public School, 1149 Gladstone at Rosemount

This Wednesday evening, you are invited to an Open House to review and discuss the Community Design Pl an (CDP) for the entire Wellington St W corridor and Parkdale Market area. This meeting is in advance of the CDP's approval at the Planning and Environment Committee next month (on June 22, 2010). City staff and Councillor Leadman will be present to answer questions.

The CDP for Wellington Street W is a City-led process that results in a plan that will guide both the development of private lands and public works (of the City and other government agencies) within the study area. The CDP will create a vision, and a means to implement that vision, in ways that are meant to satisfy both community aspirations and the relevant strategic growth management policies of the Official Plan.

The CDP will guide the changes we will see over the next 20 years for this area including:

Zoning and urban design considerations
Land development proposals
Open space and community linkages
Streetscape and road improvements
Civic initiatives
This is an important meeting. If you would prefer to view the plan and comment online, click on this link
