What This Means for Home and Business Owners
Property owners and those in the market for Willowbrook real estate should be aware of the goals and objectives of the Willowbrook Community Plan Update, which are:
- Creating a sustainable transit-oriented community that is more pedestrian and cycle-friendly, and can significantly influence travel patterns through more walking, cycling, and transit trips
- Defining a future built form and landscape character, place-making elements, and sustainable community design that serves local needs and creates an attractive destination
- Identifying community amenities to support future land use and development vision along with policy recommendations for securing community amenity contributions through a land value capture system
- Ensuring comprehensive public engagement that effectively communicates and involves property owners, local community stakeholders, external agencies, and the broader public in the planning process
- Building a financial plan for the provision and maintenance of infrastructure services
As stated on the Township’s website, the estimated time of completion for the plan update is Spring 2024. The next phases of the planning process, and their respective estimated dates of start, are as follows:
- Phase 2: Vision & Design Options – Winter 2023;
- Phase 3: Preferred Land Use Plan & Strategic Policy Directions – Spring & Summer 2023;
- Phase 4: Draft Community Plan – Fall 2023 & Winter 2024; and
- Phase 5: Plan Adoption by Council – Spring 2024.
In line with the goals and objectives of the Planning Update to hear from as many people as possible, residents, landowners, and other interested parties are encouraged to participate via survey to help:
- Identify opportunities that may be created by the SLS extension
- Provide input on what a transit-oriented Willowbrook should be like in the future
