The 3 Waterdown Projects

  • Waterdown Community Node Secondary Plan Study - The City’s Official Plan identifies the central Waterdown area as a Community Node. It serves as a focal point for the surrounding community. The purpose of this Study is to create a plan to help manage change and redevelopment in this area.
  • Waterdown Community Transportation Management Study - (Municipal Class Environmental Assessment) Notice of Commencement and Public Information Centre #1. This Study is being completed following the requirements of Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA process. The purpose of this study is to review the existing transportation network and identify areas for improvements to address existing and future transportation needs. This work will build on road improvements already planned or in progress. The workshop will outline proposed transportation solutions and seek your input on the solutions developed to-date. 
  • Waterdown Village Built Heritage Inventory - This project will identify and recognize heritage buildings in the Village and will help inform Secondary Plan policies to conserve and enhance Waterdown’s historic character. Preliminary findings and an overview of the historical evolution of Waterdown Village will be available at the workshop.
