Decision Advice and Other Information
The Planning and Growth Mangement Committee commenced a statutory public meeting on April 6, 2016, and notice was given in accordance with the Planning Act.
This report presents and seeks City Council approval of the recommended Mimico-Judson Secondary Plan and Urban Design Guidelines. Together, the Secondary Plan and Guidelines provide a framework to guide the revitalization of the Mimico-Judson Regeneration Area.
The recommended Secondary Plan and Guidelines result from the Mimico-Judson Regeneration Areas Study that was initiated in 2013, upon Council’s redesignation of the subject lands from Employment Areas to Regeneration Areas as part of the Municipal Comprehensive Review of employment lands. The Regeneration Areas Study consisted of extensive public engagement, including a dedicated working group and multiple technical studies conducted by consultants retained by the City.
The Secondary Plan policies are based on four guiding principles: (1) retain and expand business through land use certainty and flexible mixed use regeneration; (2) unlock underutilized lands for transit supportive mixed use development; (3) protect and support existing operations and future expansion opportunities at the Willowbrook Rail Maintenance Facility; and (4) foster a connected and complete community.
This report recommends that Council adopt the revised Secondary Plan and Urban Design Guidelines. The report outlines the key findings from additional engagement with affected landowners and summarizes the revisions to the Secondary Plan that have been incorporated since the Planning and Growth Management Committee's consideration of the proposed Secondary Plan at its meeting on January 20, 2016.
