North Oakville development is set to explode. Development by Dundas Street, Hwy 407, Tremaine Road and Nine Line is about to explode after the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) approved developed for all except some site specific areas in North Oakville. Although it is expected to take 25 years until fully realized, it will change the way we see North Oakville today.
Lands immediately west of Bronte and a portion of Palermo Village are still under dispute with a hearing scheduled in May 2010.
This ruling allows 250 hectares to be available and Oakville Mayor Rob Burton thinks this is a win for the Town of Oakville. He stated it would add 35,000 jobs for Oakville. According to the Mayor, the majority of the North Oakville West Secondary Plan is sited for employment.
This new development will incorporate residential and commercial development including the new Oakville hospital, proposed district energy facility associated with the hospital, employment lands, community parks, etc.
Oakville’s Planning and Development Committe wasted no time by approving zoning for the proposed communities. Dana Anderson, director of Planning Services has been quoted as saying, “This by-law along with the urban design guidelines, parking strategy, transit plan and other documents, will all help to map out the town’s vision of creating a transit-first sustainable, walkable community.”
The development of North Oakville is expected to take approximately 25 years tom complete with 50,000 people living in it and 35,000 employed there.
