Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Southeast Georgetown area was identified for future development and brought into the Urban Area in the Town of Halton Hills through the Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 and Halton Hills Official Plan Amendment (OPA) No. 10. The Town is required to prepare a Secondary Plan as part of the process and before any development can proceed.

Once completed, the Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan will identify the most appropriate mix of land uses in the study area and incorporate best practices for community development while establishing boundaries and targets for the new community and population, including housing units and affordable housing and employment capacity targets.

The plan will align with provincial and regional plans while outlining concepts for transportation networks and water and wastewater servicing. It will ensure the environmental objectives outlined in the Town’s Official Plan are met and the Greenbelt and Regional Natural Heritage System are protected.

The identified Southeast Georgetown lands and study area is approximately 53 hectares (131 acres) in size and fronts onto No. 10 Sideroad and the area west of Winston Churchill Blvd and east of Tenth Line. The north end of the Study Area is bounded by Silver Creek.

The Secondary Plan development will be a community-integrated process, shaped by input from the public and key stakeholders.

    Will the town really think outside the box when planning for this community? Will this plan prioritize limiting green house gases in every way it can? Will it be a walking friendly community instead of a car friendly community? Will it contain affordable housing with mainly townhouses, semi-detached houses and low rise apartments that have shops on the bottom level? Will it have playgrounds and parks available to everyone? Will it plan to have public transit with connections to GO transit? I hope all these ideas will be implemented.

    The Town has a commitment to sustainable design as directed by Council’s emergency climate resolution. Further, any future development in the study area will be reviewed against the Town’s Green Development Standards.  More information on the Green Development Standards can be found here:  https://www.haltonhills.ca/en/residents/plans-and-strategies.aspx#Green-Development-Standards-information

    The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan Study Area is a designated greenfield area. Phase 3 of this study will determine a preferred land use and detailed planning study.  As part of this phase, Town staff in conjunction with the consultant will evaluate a variety of housing types including affordable housing. The Secondary Plan will consider local parks including parkettes and neighbourhood parks. As part of the Secondary Plan, a Transportation Analysis is being undertaken. The Secondary Plan aims to establish land use patterns that promote mixed-use, compact, transit-supportive, walkable communities. 

    We value your comments and feedback and will take them in to consideration as we create the Secondary Plan. We look forward to your continued participation throughout this process and will keep you informed of future public engagement opportunities. 

    Should you have any questions or additional comments, please contact us through Let's Talk Halton Hills, planning@haltonhills.ca or 905-873-2600 Ext. 2900.

    I’m honestly not trying to be sarcastic with this question: will there be anything besides houses in this area once it’s developed?

    Can you ensure that you don’t develop this land with more high density housing? This area is saturated and the traffic is going to become ridiculous. Also, please do not build large commercial structures which will also attract too much traffic and people to the area. Can’t we just have trails and green space?

    The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan Study Area is a designated greenfield area. Phase 3 of this study will determine a preferred land use and detailed planning study. This phase will look at various housing options including low, medium and high density options.  The Secondary Plan will consider local parks such as parkettes and neighbourhood parks, and connectivity to trails, bike routes and parks and open space systems.

    What area is defined as Georgetown southeast?

    CatherineD asked 8 months ago

    The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan Study Area is bound by Silver Creek to the north, 10th Line to the west, 10 Side Road to the south, and Winston Churchill Boulevard to the east.

    With housing growing in Georgetown, are there any plans to build additional roads out of town The only roads leading out of Georgetown south are, Winston Churchill, 9 and 10th line and Trafalgar. About 70% of the Georgetown population, works outside of Georgetown. The current road situation is not adequate,

    As part of the Secondary Plan, a Transportation Analysis is being undertaken. The review of applicable background policies such as the Region and Town’s Transportation Master Plans is being undertaken to understand the transportation infrastructure planned within the area, and to help identify any gaps within the study area. Existing transportation conditions were also reviewed to provide input to constraints and infrastructure needs for potential land use opportunities as part of the Secondary Plan. 

    Further, the proposed Norval By-pass intersects these lands and is being considered as part of the study process.  The Norval By-pass Environmental Assessment is being completed by the Region of Halton.  More information on the project can be found here:  https://www.halton.ca/For-Residents/Roads-Construction/Municipal-Class-Environmental-Assessment-Studies/Norval-West-Bypass-Transportation-Corridor-Improve

    How about being really innovative with SouthEast (& Southwest) Georgetown by building a net zero community that integrates Solar and Geothermal heating in every home, in such a way that eliminates the need for Natural Gas infrastructure entirely, and ultimately reducing green house gas emissions to near zero? See the Whisper Valley community near Austin Texas. Geothermal works well here in Ontario - my entire house runs on it for heating and hot water supply. Solar and geothermal is best affordable when implemented at scale, and they are consistent with the building code. Just think, homes without a Natural gas furnace or water heater and prewired for an EV car. I have no vested interest in selling any products, investments or providing any services - although I was a consultant for many years, I'm simply a resident who as a biologist with a very good understanding of land development processes thinks we can do better while developing our communities. Watch these videos for a better idea and scope of what's possible. Ask This Old House - Whisper Valley https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy0SEG36bEM Whisper Valley concept https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_Xj0KmMi0U https://www.achrnews.com/articles/142720-geothermal-ground-loop-heat-exchange-project-profile-homeowners-perspective Please consider this seriously - try not to discard the idea as too hard, it's to new and because the developer wont like it. This is what we need to be doing globally. Shawn Taylor
