We’re finished! Take a look at the final Mobility Hub Study report and see the key recommendations to shape Milton's downtown core into a Hub of Possibility. Thank you to everyone who participated in the study and provided feedback. To see the full report, go to the project's Let's Talk Milton page.

The Study focuses on the area within a 10-minute walk from the Milton GO Station. This area is a destination point for residents and visitors. It has tremendous potential for transit-supportive development and public realm enhancements.

The Study includes a Demonstration Plan to show one way that the area may look like at full build-out, in about 30 years. The recommended planning framework provides flexibility for many approaches. This means, the area may not look exactly like the Demonstration Plan, but it illustrates the scale of development required to achieve the density target mandated by the Province of Ontario.

Key findings

Here are the Study’s key findings and recommendations for long-term development of the Milton Mobility Hub: A Hub of Possibility:

One of the primary goals for Milton’s Mobility Hub is to achieve the density target, set out by the Province, for the Downtown Milton Urban Growth Centre. The Study found that the area may eventually accommodate 25,411 residents with 4,137 jobs.
 Character and built form
The Study divides the area into five precincts (Main Street East, Station Precinct, Ontario Corridor, Thompson Corridor and Transitional Area). Each precinct would have a distinct character and built form. For detailed descriptions of each precinct, view the report.
 Urban greening and publicly accessible open space
The Study identifies opportunities for more greenery in the area to improve air quality and adapt to climate change.
The goal is to provide transportation choices for people living within walking distance of the transit hub. This will create a walkable destination, that will in turn stimulate investment in facilities and services, including regional transit.
The Study includes a Servicing Report that lists sustainable urban drainage systems that could potentially be used.
The Study provides recommendations for implementation including early solutions and interventions, area specific plans and policies, zoning updates, urban design guidelines and built for performance standards, alternative Town standards, incentives and partnerships and phasing and finance.

Next steps

Town staff will prepare a Policy Directions Report for Milton Council’s consideration and secondary planning and other planning processes will follow.
