Planning a Community

West Harbour

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. 

Location: Area is bound by York Boulevard to the west, Cannon Street to the south, Wellington Street to the east and Hamilton Harbour to the north.
