News release

Milton Council passed policies to manage growth and development in a deliberate way around the Milton GO Station at its meeting on Feb. 28, 2022.

The policies, based off of findings from the Mobility Hub Study, will purposefully guide the development of buildings, homes, businesses, roads, sidewalks, and public spaces in the area within a 10-minute walk of the Milton GO Station. The policy solutions address building heights, density, land use, parking, urban design, and open space. For more details about the policies, read the full Council report.

Through these policies, the vision of a complete, accessible, and walkable community will be realized as the area is redeveloped. This means that housing, offices, stores, restaurants, various transit options (walking, cycling, bus, and rail), and public spaces, will be available within walking distance, while also complementing historic downtown Milton. Once built out, the area will be an urban centre destination for residents and visitors.

The vision of this area was made possible through the Milton community’s significant public participation and feedback in engagement opportunities over the past year, and throughout the overall Mobility Hub Study. Together, we’re making Milton A Place of Possibility.


"With these new and updated policies, the Town of Milton is in a position to proactively manage growth and build out the area around the Milton GO Station. A lot of work has gone into bringing the vision for the Mobility Hub to life, and as a Council, we look forward to seeing this area and others come to fruition to create our future Milton.” 

- Gord Krantz
Mayor, Town of Milton

"Milton’s vision of a complete community includes re-imagining the area focused on the Town’s central GO station to meet the current and future needs of our community. These policies ensure that Milton has an up-to-date planning framework in place to guide the ongoing transformation of the area surrounding the Milton GO Station.”

- David Twigg
Acting Director, Planning Policy and Urban Design, Town of Milton
