Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan

""

About the Project

The purpose of the Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan and Master Environmental Servicing Plan is to establish the land use policy framework and infrastructure plans to develop the southermost lands within the City.

Vision

Clair-Maltby will be a vibrant, urban community that is integrated with Guelph’s southern neighbourhoods, as well as having strong connections to Downtown, employment areas and the rest of the City. The Natural Heritage System and the Paris Moraine provide the framework for the balanced development of interconnected and sustainable neighbourhoods. This area will be primarily residential in character with a full range and mix of housing types and a variety of other uses that meet the needs of all residents. A system of parks, open spaces and trails will be interwoven throughout to provide opportunities for active and passive recreation.

  • This is not a question, but instead a comment. I've looked through the background material provided at the Sept 25th workshop dealing with the open space issue for Clair-Maltby. The community park should be located adjacent to the the natural heritage systems corridor in the east-central block. This location assists in meeting most of the objectives of the secondary plan planning process: it supports the environmental corridor as part of the moraine system; it is located away from the mega-sports field complex in the northwest corner of the planning area (the proposed south-end community centre and mega sports field complex); the proposed park is central to the service area for the Clair-Maltby area. To be specific to the location for the new community park, it should be located in the '+' block that comprises a total area of 22.68 ha (only a portion of this area required adjacent to the natural corridor that is located on a portion of the property.
