Waterdown Community Node Secondary Plan Study

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Waterdown Community Node Secondary Plan Study will create a clear vision for how the central Waterdown area should evolve in the future, and establish policies to implement that vision. The study will help manage change and redevelopment by providing direction on the desired mix of uses, height, density, built form, and urban design within the area.

How will we use your feedback?

Feedback will be used to develop the vision for how the Waterdown core should evolve in the future, and to create specific policies and directions to implement that vision.

Project backgound

The overall population of Waterdown has been growing significantly and further growth is expected in the future. This growth will have an impact on the form and function of the Waterdown Community Node, bringing with it opportunities and challenges. Changes to the area’s transportation system, such as the planned east-west road to the north of the core, new bike lanes along major streets, and other proposed road connections, will also have impacts. In addition, there is a need to protect the heritage characteristics of the historical downtown, to provide more detailed design guidance for new development and to address concerns related to traffic and access in the area. A Secondary Plan is an important tool that can be used to help guide change.

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.
