BRAMPTON: The City of Brampton is hosting Brampton Plan: City Structure Workshop a City-wide, public workshop on Saturday, April 10, from 10 am to 12 pm, to gather input from residents, business owners, community groups and stakeholders on its Brampton Plan.

The workshop is part of a series of public events to gather input as the City of Brampton enters the next phase of the Brampton Plan, the City’s Official Plan Review.

Brampton Plan will create a roadmap for how the City will develop and grow in the future.

In 2021, the City of Brampton will continue extensive community consultation processes built off of the Brampton 2040 Vision with residents, community groups and agencies, Indigenous peoples, builders, developers, local stakeholders, and other levels of government.

This input is expected to help create a more vibrant, environmentally sustainable and healthier future for Brampton.

Community feedback will help guide City Council. When approved by Council, Brampton Plan will establish a legislative framework to manage and guide growth and future development in Brampton.

Brampton Plan will determine where housing, shops and businesses, parks, trails, and natural areas will be built, in addition to where roads, transit and other essential infrastructure is needed to support a rapidly growing city of more than 700,000.

Since Brampton’s last Official Plan in 2006, the City has become the ninth-largest city in Canada and population growth is three times higher than the provincial average.

There have also been changes to Provincial and Regional planning policies. Brampton Plan will align these planning policies along with the City’s strategic plans, projects, and development to fulfill the aspirations of the Brampton 2040 Vision: Living the Mosaic as well as supporting the Term of Council Priorities.

It’s the overarching plan that helps manage how Brampton grows and develops. It guides the location and type of housing, industry, offices and shops, as well as the infrastructure needed to support a growing city – including streets, parks, transit, schools and recreational facilities.

Throughout this consultation process, we are asking everyone to provide input on building an inclusive city that is safe, sustainable and successful.”

Martin Medeiros, Regional Councillor, Wards 3 & 4; Chair, Planning and Development Committee, City of Brampton, said: “The Brampton 2040 Vision: Living the Mosaic depicts a more sustainable and vibrant future for Brampton.

Together, we will establish a sound and thoughtful framework to ensure all City planning, projects and development are working together to implement the City’s longer-term vision.”
