West Harbour Secondary Plan
Setting Sail is a land use plan for the West Harbour. The Plan focuses on three areas of major change:
- the Waterfront
- the area south of the Canadian National rail yard (Barton-Tiffany)
- the former industrial lands along Ferguson Avenue (Ferguson-Wellington Corridor)
The Secondary Plan was the first of many initiatives for the West Harbour. It establishes the framework for public improvements and private development to promote season-long and year-round enjoyment and appreciation of the waterfront.
