The City has initiated a land use study (completed in May 2021) and urban design concept plan (currently underway) for the area generally bound by York Road, the CN rail line and Stevenson Street in Guelph. The land use study considers:

  • land use along York Road, Victoria Road and Stevenson Street
  • appropriate land uses along the rail corridor
  • identifying redevelopment and intensification opportunities
  • determining the suitable amount of employment lands in the study area
  • examining the mixed business and service/commercial land use designations
  • the transition between residential and non-residential uses
  • identification of cultural heritage resources and adding properties to the municipal heritage register

The study develops a coordinated approach for the future of this area and will inform Guelph’s Official Plan update.

The land use study was approved by City Council on May 10, 2021.
