Guelph needs to plan to meet provincial growth forecasts for a population of 191,000 and 101,000 jobs by the year 2041. We need your input to ensure that we develop a Guelph-made approach to accommodate this future growth. You can help by letting us know where more housing should be within Guelph’s already developed area. We are also looking for your thoughts on how tall buildings should be allowed to be in different areas of Guelph. By completing this survey you will provide the City with valuable input on your preferences for accommodating future growth in our city.
