Mobility Hubs Opportunities and Constraints First Public Workshop Summary and Save the Date!

On September 10th, the City held the first public session (workshop presentation) to collect comments and insights from the public related to the Mobility Hubs Opportunities and Constraints Study. The summary of the session can be found here. Please review and please let us know if we captured your thoughts on the Vision for these key parts of the City.

Save the Date!

On the evening of February 12, 2014, the City will be hosting a second public session related to the Mobility Hubs Opportunities and Constraints Study. Notice and details of the opportunity will follow in the coming weeks. 

Background

Burlington is growing in place; that means growing within our urban limits. To grow in a sustainable way, the City of Burlington must make strategic decisions about growth and development and use our land and infrastructure efficiently. One way to do that is to focus growth in key parts of the city.

The Big Move, the province's transportation plan, outlines a common vision for transforming transportation in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTAH). Part of that vision requires the city to determine the role and vision for regional transit hubs called mobility hubs.

Mobility Hubs are more than just a transit station. They are places of connectivity where different modes of transportation - from walking to commuter rail - come together seamlessly and where there is an intensive concentration of places to live, work, shop and play. They serve as a place to wait for and connect with transit whether you are walking, cycling, taking transit or driving. Successful mobility hubs have the potential to become vibrant places of activity over time.

The City of Burlington, as part of the Official Plan Review, is doing a Mobility Hub Opportunities and Constraints Study. The purpose of this study is to set a high level vision and guiding design principles for the city's two Mobility Hubs (Burlington GO and Downtown Burlington) and the two major transit station areas (Appleby GO and Aldershot GO), as well as the corridors that connect them.

For more information about the study, please visit the Mobility Hubs Opportunities and Constraints Study webpage or contact Alison Enns, MCIP, RPP, Senior Planner, City of Burlington at 905-335-7600 ext. 7787 or alison.enns@burlington.ca.
