The overall population of Waterdown has been growing significantly and further growth is expected in the future. This growth brings with it opportunities and challenges, particularly for the central core of Waterdown, which is referred to as a “Community Node” in the City’s Official Plan. To deal with these opportunities and challenges, a long term land use plan is being created for the Waterdown Community Node to help guide change, providing direction for the future form and function of the area.

Key areas of focus for the study include:

  • supporting the vibrancy of the commercial areas in the Node
  • protecting the heritage characteristics of the historical downtown and adjacent historical neighbourhoods
  • providing more detailed design guidance for new development
  • planning improvements to the transportation network in the area

This study is being completed in conjunction with the Waterdown Community Transportation Management Study and the Waterdown Village Built Heritage Inventory. Each of these projects will support and provide input to the Secondary Plan Study.
