Shaping Guelph: Guelph’s Growth Management Strategy

Multi-colour images of different types of silhouetted buildings including houses, one with chimney, multi-storey highrise with windows, basillica, and silhouetted crane standing in front of all buildings.

Guelph needs to plan to meet provincial growth forecasts of a population of 191,000 and 101,000 jobs by 2041. How we meet those forecasts is up to us. Growth doesn’t mean putting high-rise apartment buildings in every neighbourhood; thoughtful planning will identify the right growth for all areas of the city so that Guelph can attract new residents, businesses and services that add to our community. Planning how and where we grow helps us create a people-oriented city full of essential amenities, walkable neighbourhoods, thriving community hubs and an interconnected transportation network. We need your help to develop a Guelph-made approach to accommodate this growth.
