Is This the Future?

A devoted local resident who is an architectural technologist has used GIS (the system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data) in combination with information on Midtown and the applications currently on hand with the Town of Oakville to create a series of infographics depicting what the proposed OPA could represent. He has created a site with additional information and extends an invitation for all to visit.

Building community is a social and planning process that has long term implications. One of the most critical planning decisions we will make for the next generation is the Midtown Official Plan.  


The Midtown Official Plan (OP) will provide area-specific policies that shape and define this urban neighbourhood. The language in the OP is particularly important as it will be what must be considered when evaluating development applications and what the Ontario Land Tribunal will consider if our decisions are appealed.

Midtown will also be home to tens of thousands of people who will live, work and spend their lives in a high-density environment of multi unit buildings that are proposed to surpass heights never seen in Oakville. Liveability must be a priority and ensuring we secure that liveability is something we must all work to achieve.

This is the biggest development project Oakville will ever undertake. We need to get it right. We ALL need to get involved.
