The comprehensive planning for the north Markham Future Urban Area will be documented in a Conceptual Master Plan, which will identify a community structure for the entire Future Urban Area. The Plan will address land use categories, road, transit and servicing networks, an open space system, and major community facility requirements. Along with the community structure, the Conceptual Master Plan will identify key policy requirements to be addressed in more detail in the preparation of Secondary Plans for smaller areas.

The Conceptual Master Plan is being informed by the following studies:

  • Subwatershed studies of the four watercourses within and beside the Future Urban Area;
  • Transportation;
  • Water Servicing; and
  • Wastewater Servicing.

The City is coordinating the Conceptual Master Planning process with the studies listed above so that the Plan is prepared in collaboration and at the same time as the other studies.
