The Milton Education Village Secondary Plan will guide the development of a complete community that blends post-secondary education with a mix of other complementary uses into a comprehensively planned neighbourhood.

Milton’s vision is to create a dynamic urban village, where innovation meets natural wonder.

The Secondary Plan will reflect the following guiding principles that have developed through community involvement:

  • An urban village that is visually and physically connected with its landscape setting
  • A network of streets, squares and open spaces that create a walkable and active public realm
  • A compact, mixed-use community with densities supportive of transit and active transportation
  • An innovation district providing opportunities for knowledge-based employment sectors and for learning beyond the classroom, as well as a range of public and private facilities.

The MEV Secondary Plan area is 162 hectares (400 acres) of land centered on the Mattamy National Cycling Centre and bounded by the Niagara Escarpment Plan Area to the north, Tremaine Road to the east, Britannia Road to the south and the Greenbelt Plan Area to the west.

What's New

The Development Services department has drafted a local Official Plan amendment to bring forward the Secondary Plan for the Milton Education Village. The proposed draft Secondary Plan includes policies with detailed land use permissions to facilitate a mixed-use complete community and innovation district anchored by a post-secondary education campus. A number of background studies have been prepared to support the Secondary Plan. Contact us for request a copy of the proposed Official Plan amendment.
