Why are we doing this?

Through the Town’s Strategic Plan, Destiny Milton 3, Council established a goal to focus on attracting knowledge-based industries including developing small business and incubators in multiple sectors.  Leveraging the Province’s announcement to create a new university-led post-secondary site in Milton, the Milton Education Village is intended to be a key element of the Toronto to Kitchener Innovation Corridor.  Through the ongoing secondary planning program, the Town will develop a policy framework which promotes the full integration of knowledge-based employment in a mixed use, mid to high density format.

Study area 

The Milton Education Village Secondary Plan Study Area is located west of Tremaine Road and the Boyne Survey (see Map).

Note: The series of technical background studies that will be completed as part of the secondary plan study and the study areas for the technical work in some cases will extend beyond the secondary plan study area outlined above.
