Effective January 14, Oakville is under a stay-at-home order as part of the second provincial emergency due to COVID-19. Other restrictions are in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines. The town is reviewing the provincial declaration and will post any service impacts as soon as possible.
A town-initiated official plan amendment (OPA) to the Livable Oakville Plan is proposed as described in the notice below. It affects all lands south of Dundas Street, but the primary purpose is to update the planned transportation network to support the long-term redevelopment of the lands in Midtown Oakville.
At this meeting, the Planning Services Department will be presenting a recommendation report with respect to the proposed OPA, and Planning and Development Council is expected to make a decision. You are invited to attend and provide input about the propsed OPA directly to Planning and Development Council:
Monday, September 11, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Town Hall, Council Chamber
Please refer to the notice above for more information. The agenda for this meeting, with a link to the Staff Report, should be available on the Agendas and Minutes page by September 1, 2017.
A statutory public meeting about the proposed OPA, as required by the Planning Act, was hosted by Planning and Development Council on Monday, July 10, 2017. The meeting minutes are available on the Agendas and Minutes page.
The Planning Services and Engineering and Construction departments hosted public information meetings about the proposed OPA on June 21 and 22, 2017.
Midtown Oakville is the area around the Oakville Station (GO, VIA and Oakville Transit). It includes all lands within the boundary defined by the QEW, Chartwell Road, Cornwall Road and Sixteen Mile Creek, and covers about 100 hectares. The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe identifies Midtown Oakville as an Urban Growth Centre and requires that it be planned to accommodate a minimum density of 200 residents and jobs per hectare by the year 2041. The town’s Livable Oakville Plan includes policies to enable development that would support a minimum of approximately 12,000 residents and 8,000 jobs in conformity with the Growth Plan. The existing policies were based on a conceptual transportation network pending further study.
