Join us for the final leg of the journey as we finalize our plan for this new community in Guelph’s south end!

About the Project

The City is proposing a secondary plan that supports the development of a vibrant, urban Clair-Maltby community designed to respect the Natural Heritage System and the Paris-Galt Moraine, following the City’s environment-first approach. The secondary plan reflects the vision and directions we developed with the community over the past four years and establishes the land use policy framework and infrastructure plans to develop the southernmost lands within the City.

Virtual Public Open House – June 24 - August 8, 2021

On June 24, 2021, the City hosted a series of live public information sessions to inform residents and stakeholders about the proposed Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan policies, the Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) and the Comprehensive Environmental Impact Study (CEIS). You can view the recording and presentation of each session using the links below.

Release of Documents

The proposed secondary plan is supported by technical work completed through the Comprehensive Environmental Impact Study (CEIS), the Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) and the Energy and Other Utilities Study.

The draft secondary plan, MESP, CEIS and Energy and Other Utilities Study were released prior to the open house and can be found at guelph.ca/clair-maltby by clicking on ‘documents’. Links to the documents are also be available on this page under 'Document Library'.

    Clair-Maltby will be a vibrant, urban village 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 (NHS) and the Paris Galt Moraine provide the physical and ecological framework for the balanced development of interconnected and sustainable neighbourhoods following the City’s environment-first approach.

    The area will be primarily residential in character with a full range and mix of housing types, which will allow for affordable and market-based housing, and a variety of other uses to 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.

    On June 24, 2021, the City provided an overview of the proposed Clair-Maltby land use designations and open space system. You can review that presentation and session recording here. 

    Please take a moment to review the Maps below and provide your ideas on the proposed land use designations and open space system! You can click on each image to enlarge.

    The Comprehensive Environmental Impact Study (CEIS) evaluated how Clair-Maltby could be developed in concert with the existing Natural Heritage System and stormwater drainage features. The CEIS was undertaken as part of the Secondary Plan process, and stormwater management alternatives were evaluated as part of the Master Environmental Servicing Plan in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. Phase 1 and 2 of the CEIS occurred over a duration of four years and included studying and assessing the existing natural environment features and functions, as well as studying the role of groundwater / surface water in the existing Clair-Maltby study area to support the existing natural systems. Phase 3 of the CEIS assessed the impacts associated with the preferred community structure on the existing environment and established management strategies and monitoring frameworks. 

     The CEIS provides the following:

    • Informed land use process;
    • Technical basis for groundwater, surface water and natural heritage assessment; and,
    • Technical basis for integrated impact management plan(s) and implementation and monitoring plan(s).

    On June 24, 2021, the City provide a detailed overview of the CEIS and its findings. You can view the presentation and session recording here.

    Water and wastewater servicing for Clair-Maltby was studied as part of the Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP), which was undertaken in accordance with Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process.

    The MESP has followed Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process and identifies a series of servicing projects that will be required to service the Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan Area.

    MESP has determined preferred servicing strategies for:

    • Water & Wastewater; 
    • Stormwater management, and
    • Mobility (transportation)

    The preferred water servicing strategy for the Clair-Maltby lands includes a system of water distribution mains, an above-ground reservoir, and a transmission main bringing water from the Clair Booster Pump Station to the new above-ground reservoir, with associated hydrants, valves and appurtenances as required.

    The preferred wastewater servicing for the Clair-Maltby lands includes a system of wastewater gravity mains, sanitary pump stations and sanitary forcemains. A new trunk sewer is proposed along Gordon Street to Clair Road, Laird Road and north to connect into the Hanlon Trunk system. 

    The water and wastewater services for Clair-Maltby will be studied, designed and constructed to in alignment with mobility infrastructure and to support population growth at each of the four development phases. On June 24, 2021, the City reviewed the details of the MESP. You can view that presentation and session recording here.

    Please take a look at the preferred servicing scenarios and phasing, and let us know what you think! Click each image to enlarge.

    Mobility Idea Board

    about 1 month ago

    Clair-Maltby will be a community where walking, bicycling, other active transportation modes, and transit are attractive and efficient modes of transportation within the community, and for connecting to the City as a whole and the surrounding rural area. This will be achieved through the development of a multi-modal active-transportation focused mobility system inclusive of an integrated network with roads, bicycling facilities, sidewalks and paths designed, built and maintained with consideration for all users. New mobility infrastructure and improvements to existing corridors required to support growth in the Clair-Maltby area were studied in the Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP), which was undertaken in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.  Mobility infrastructure will be further studied, designed, and constructed in stages to support population growth at each of the four development phases.  

    On June 24, 2021, the City provided an overview of the mobility preferences for Clair-Maltby. You can view that presentation and session recording here. Please review the images below and provide us with your thoughts! Click on images to enlarge.
