Your input is important! The Town of Oakville appreciates your feedback and ideas and we encourage you to get involved.

This is the third open house for this study. At this open house, the project team will present the project details, review study findings, address public comments and concerns and present the preferred solution. You will have an opportunity to have your say on how we change and improve our transportation system within Midtown Oakville — getting us closer to our goal of being the most livable town in Canada.

The Town of Oakville has undertaken a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study to determine a practical, long- term strategy to guide the development of the transportation and municipal storm water network needed to support the planned growth in Midtown Oakville to 2031.

Midtown Oakville is an urban growth centre identified in the province’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe — Places to Grow — and further defined in the town’s Livable Oakville Plan. The area is required to accommodate approximately 20,000 residents and jobs by 2031. It is also identified as a mobility hub in The Big Move, Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan.

This Class EA Study considered a diverse range of options to satisfy future growth demands, including but not limited to:

  • Public transit system and network improvements
  • Active transportation (pedestrian and cycling) network improvements
  • Travel demand management requirements
  • Land use planning policies
  • Municipal road network improvements
  • Municipal drainage network improvements

This project is a continuation of Switching Gears (the town’s Transportation Master Plan study) to define the preferred design of the transportation and municipal drainage network components, and their related property requirements, in Midtown Oakville.

The approved solution will be implemented through amendments to the Livable Oakville Plan and the Zoning By- law.

Questions, comments or accessibility needs, please contact a member of the project team by March 26, 2014, if you have accessibility needs.
