History

Switching Gears highlights the important relationship between land-use and transportation, and reflect the town's existing policies and plans, including Livable Oakville and the Halton Region Official Plan.

The town's last TMP was completed in 2007. Switching Gears updates this study to ensure we plan a transportation system that supports the anticipated growth of our community, and aligns with other key studies that have been completed since the last TMP, including the town's Active Transportation Master Plan and Halton Region's Transportation Master Plan - The Road to Change.
