City of Hamilton - Planning & Economic Development
The Urban Design group develops and coordinates urban design strategies for the City of Hamilton. Urban design staff work with stakeholders, other City staff and the community to develop Streetscape Master Plans, Urban Design Guidelines as well as other policy documents and design strategies that guide the development and improvement of our urban environment. Working within the Community Planning and Design Section we also provide urban design input into secondary plans for new and existing neighbourhoods, review specific site plan submissions as part of the development approval process and advise Public Works on the implementation of improvement projects related to urban design.
