News Release

The Town of Milton has completed its Mobility Hub Study report that outlines recommendations to shape Milton’s downtown core as a Hub of Possibility. The recommendations build on significant public participation and feedback received during three engagement phases.

The Milton Mobility Hub will be a transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly and memorable destination in the Town’s main urban centre. It will provide a mix of uses and accessible public spaces that complement historic downtown Milton, feature design excellence and frame views to the Niagara Escarpment.

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 and has tremendous potential for transit-supportive development and public realm enhancements.

“Milton’s downtown core is already transforming with several high-density residential developments built, under construction, approved or in planning stages,” said Barb Koopmans, Commissioner, Development Services. “The Study recommends a framework that will ensure development is coordinated to create a neighbourhood that is focused on moving people in different ways.”

The Study includes a Demonstration Plan that shows 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, it simply illustrates the scale of development required to achieve the density target mandated by the Province of Ontario.

At the August 24 Milton Council meeting, Town staff will be seeking direction to prepare a Policy Directions Report for Council’s consideration.
