Transportation Master Plan Approved

On Monday, April 9, 2018, Milton Council approved the Transportation Master Plan (TMP).  Following Council approval, the next step is a 30-day public review period, in accordance with the requirements for Phases 1 and 2 of a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.

The 30-day public review period will begin on Thursday, May 3, 2018 and conclude on Saturday, June 2, 2018. Please send your comments on the plan to the email address noted on the bottom left-hand side of this page.

All comments will become part of the public record of the study with the exception of personal information.

The TMP document is available for review at Milton Town Hall, Engineering Services.

Town of Milton
150 Mary Street, Second Floor
Milton, ON  L9T 6Z5

The TMP may also be downloaded using the links at the bottom of this section.

If major concerns arise which cannot first be resolved through discussions with Town staff, a person or party may request that the Minister of Environment and Climate Change make an order for a project to comply with Part II of the Environmental Assessment Act (referred to as a Part II Order).

Requests must be made in writing to the Minister by June 2, 2018, as follows: 

Minister of the Environment and Climate Change
77 Wellesley St. W, Floor 11
Toronto ON  M7A 2T5
Fax: 416-314-8452

In addition, a copy of the request must also be sent to the Town Clerk at the following address:

Town Clerk
Town of Milton
150 Mary Street
Milton, ON  L9T 6Z5

If there is no request received by June 2, 2018, the TMP Schedule “A+” and “B” Class Environmental Assessments will be approved for implementation and can proceed.

For more information, please see the Notice of Study Completion.

Background

We have developed a Transportation Master Plan (TMP), in conjunction with consultants WSP/MMM Group, as part of our proactive approach to planning for growth and our vision of a well-connected community. The TMP will help us prepare for a future where residents, employees and visitors have viable transportation choices to travel in and around the town to get to work, school and play destinations.

The plan will define an integrated network of walking, cycling, transit routes and streets that are safe and efficient for the movement of people and goods. This network will serve varying ages and abilities and will link to neighbouring municipalities and the greater surrounding region.

Public input sessions and online surveys took place in December 2016 and May 2017.

Vision for a Well-connected Community

  • The Transportation Master Plan will plan for a future where residents, employees and visitors have viable transportation choices which allow them to travel in and around the Town. 
  • The transportation network will be designed for all modes of travel and all transportation users of varying ages and abilities. 
  • It will consist of an integrated network of walking and cycling facilities, transit routes and streets that are safe and efficient for the movement of people and goods. 
  • The network will link to transportation facilities in neighbouring jurisdictions and throughout the greater region. 

The Transportation Master Plan will lay the groundwork for balanced investments in transportation to the year 2031 and beyond.

How We Get There 

To realize the vision of a well-connected community, the Transportation Master Plan will: 

  1. Develop a philosophy for the Town's long-term transportation and overall road network, to support future population projections and employment growth to the year 2031 and beyond;
  2. Provide a framework to help inform decisions regarding the Town's transportation system;
  3. Provide an overall direction for the Town to expand its transportation network in an efficient and effective manner;.
  4. Develop a road classification hierarchy that reflects the dynamic shift towards sustainable and alternate modes of transportation, and develop road cross sections to reflect any changes;
  5. Develop a transportation policy framework for the next Official Plan. This framework for will be developed in consultation with all interested parties;
  6. Provide input to the preparation of the next Secondary Plan Areas ("Phase 4 Lands"), including the required engineering input to develop the road network;
  7. Review and make recommendations on the Town's current road standards, design criteria and policies to ensure they meet the needs of all modes of transportation, while promoting the development of safe, efficient, livable and traffic calmed street networks;
  8. Investigate the need and justification for additional Highway 400 series overpasses, railway grade separations as well as mid-block flyovers;
  9. Investigate current and future deficiencies in roadway connectivity; and
  10. Meaningfully engage members of the public and interested stakeholders in a dialogue to help shape the outcomes of the Plan.
