VMC Transportation Master Plan
With more people living, working and travelling through the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) – Vaughan’s downtown – the City of Vaughan recognizes that the existing VMC Transportation Master Plan needs to be updated.
The revised master plan will confirm community transportation needs and support a strategy that focuses on street connectivity, accessibility and support for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and vehicles into 2051. The VMC has been identified as an urban growth centre in the provincial growth plan, A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golder Horseshoe (2020). This plan is the driver for improved land use and infrastructure planning efforts to date and continues to be the basis for the VMC growth strategy.
The City is beginning the VMC Transportation Master Plan Update and Schedule 'C' Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Studies for the extensions of Interchange Way and Millway Avenue, simultaneously.
Have ideas on how the VMC transportation network can be enhanced? What commuting challenges are you faced with? What other transportation options would you like to see? Review project materials online to:
- learn more about the VMC Transportation Master Plan Update.
- review existing conditions.
- highlight problems, opportunities and potential solutions.
- review the EA studies and preliminary design alternatives for the extensions of both roads.
- inform the vision and key priorities for transportation within the VMC.
Until Friday, March 24, share your ideas, complete an online survey to help inform the vision and key priorities for the master plan update, and use the interactive map to pinpoint transportation opportunities and challenges within the study area. Questions, comments and feedback can be emailed to the project team at email@example.com. For more information, visit the City’s Have Your Say webpage.
