What's New

The Town of Caledon held a 2nd open house as part of the ongoing Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study on September 28, 2017. The open house included the presentation and discussion of draft findings and deliverables resulting from feedback collected as part the previous open house and public design charrette workshop, policy review and agency consultation efforts.


Below are some of the resources that were be presented at the open house.

 

Introduction

The Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study is being initiated as a result of recent changes in transportation and infrastructure policy that are significantly altering traffic activity towards local-based usage in the area of the Queen Street/Highway 50 in Bolton.

Objective

The aim of the Bolton Queen St. Corridor Study is to identify land use and design opportunities along the corridor that:

  • Promote active transportation facilities and connectivity in Bolton
  • Establish the corridor as a "complete street";
  • Identify future land uses that can thrive within such a modified landscape while accommodating changing demands for growth to 2041.
  • Recognize and build upon research and policies that exist within the study area.
  • Accommodate and support future transit demands.
  • Directly reflect feedback collected through public and government agency consultation. 

The Town of Caledon has engaged Dillon Consulting, a multi-disciplinary consultant to undertake the Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study with public consultation being an integrated part of the study's process. 

The findings of the public consultation of the Bolton Queen St. Corridor Study will be used to develop visioning scenarios and ultimately a refined recommendation report to Town Council. 

The results of the Bolton Queen St. Corridor Study are intended to be used to inform and assist the Town of Caledon with the development future Town planning tools to address growth in the study area. Such tools may include potential Official Plan amendments, Secondary Plans and/or Zoning By-law amendments.

  • Regional Road 50/Queen Street. - Emil Kolb Parkway to Mayfield Road ( approximately 7.8 km)

Approach

The Bolton Queens Street Corridor Study is proposed to be undertaken in 3 phases.

  • Phase 1: Existing Conditions, Initial Consultation: Phase 1 will focus on the collection of information and opinions. Actions will include the review of existing policies, regulations, research and mapping associated with the study area, general modeling of existing conditions and a public consultation open house.  
  • Phase 2: Scenario Development and Design Refinement: Phase 2 will focus on the identification and synthesis of initial options in response to the findings of Phase 1. Actions will include a stakeholder design charrette, development of draft design plan scenarios, government agency consultation, and a follow up public consultation open house.
  • Phase 3 Refined Design Selection and Presentation: Phase 3 will focus on the refinement of proposed options into preferred design plans for the study and corresponding recommendation report. Actions will include comments review, final government agency consultation and Study presentation to Town Council for Approval. 

Modeling
Digital Project modeling will be prepared as part of the Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study to assist with the visualizing existing and potential conditions along the study area. Modeling is intended to be prepared in forms for mapping, interactive and static three dimensional renderings.
