The Cornell Secondary Plan, first approved in 1994, provides the foundation for a unique community in eastern Markham, based on the principles of new urbanism. The update to the Secondary Plan in 2008 provided a vision for Cornell Centre as an urban, mixed-use, pedestrian and transit-oriented focus for the community, centred along the planned Highway 7 rapid transit corridor.
The policies for Cornell Centre are now under review. The review process will address the following, among other matters:
An updated draft land use concept and associated policies were presented to the public at an open house in April, 2015. A draft Official Plan amendment providing updated policies for Cornell Centre was released in September 2015 and a statutory Public Meeting was held on October 20, 2015.
The Cornell Secondary Plan is currently being finalized.
