Clair-Maltby project update: phase 3 timing

The Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan project is being completed in three phases:

Phase 1 – Completing background studies – Complete
Phase 2 – Developing a Preferred Community Structure – Complete
Phase 3 – Preparing the Secondary Plan and Master Environmental Servicing Plan – Underway

We launched phase 3 with the release of a draft Directions Consultation Document and a public workshop on December 4, 2018. We also provided an opportunity for online consultation from December 5, 2018 to January 9, 2019.

When we launched phase 3, we expected to release the final version of the Directions Document at the end of January. We now expect to present the final Directions Document to Council in May.

We’re taking this additional time to:

  • Carefully review and consider the feedback we received in December/January and how it impacts the Directions Document.
  • Consider the implications of proposed changes to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, released by the Province on January 15.
  • Ensure the community has updated technical information before finalizing policy directions. This includes updates for the Comprehensive Environmental Impact Study (CEIS), stormwater management plan, mobility study, and water and wastewater servicing studies. We are planning a community event where we’ll present technical information with opportunities to clarify any information about the project; details will be coming soon.

The change in timing for the final Directions Document will ultimately affect overall project timing. The statutory public meeting we planned to host in spring 2019 will be moved into fall. Additional information will be released about this meeting later this year.
