With proposed and approved developments at the major intersection of Yonge Street and Carrville Road/ 16th Avenue, it is prudent to plan effectively while the Town of Richmond Hill is Building a New Kind of Urban as articulated in its Official Plan, adopted in 2010, and under the pressure of the Provincial directions on intensification. The Draft Yonge/ 16th Key Development Area (KDA) Secondary Plan provides area-specific policies to guide future development and public investment in the Yonge/ 16th KDA.
Three principles are used to guide development within the Yonge/ 16th KDA:
- Improve Connectivity
- Accommodate Transition
- Create Local Identity
As the next step, the public are invited to provide comments on the Draft Yonge/ 16th KDA Secondary Plan, accessible at the following link:
While staff recommends a 30-day public comment period, I am of the view that the public comment period be lengthened to receive public’s input over a plan for multi-decade developments in the Key Development Area.
YOUR INPUT IS CRITICAL. PLEASE DIRECT YOUR COMMENTS TO:
