Bolton Regional Councillor Good to Know

Learn about Intensification, Share your Opinions


Please note if you are unable to attend any of the meetings below you can complete a survey and submit your comments using the link you find below.

The Town of Caledon has initiated a study to determine how intensification will be incorporated throughout the Town.

Intensification can be achieved in several ways from new development of vacant land within built-up areas as well as the redevelopment of under-used lands. Intensification, in the right built form, can help strengthen neighbourhoods by improving and utilizing existing community services, roads and infrastructure.

Your opinion is very important! We need your input to help guide us in what intensification should look like and where it should go in the Town of Caledon. The results of these community meetings will help serve Town Council to better understand the current and future direction for a Town-wide intensification strategy.

If you are interested, you may choose to attend one of three (3) meetings scheduled on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at the following times and locations:

9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Caledon Village Place, 18313 Hurontario St.

1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Inglewood Community Centre, 15825 McLaughlin Road

7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Albion Bolton Community Centre, Auditorium, 150 Queen Street South, Bolton

  • Not impressed withThis survey patti. Only asking what type of dwelling (pretty picture) with no public education regarding impact of each choice – ie smart sustainable planning info regarding accessibility affordability seniors needs as well as density for transit options ecological footprint of housing etc. This survey will get nimby responses! And what did this survey cost? Barb

    • Hi Barb. Thanks for taking the time to comment. The survey was not intended to be the “public education”, the meetings are meant for that. The survey would hopefully be completed prior to the meetings only by folks who don’t plan to attend one of the 3 meetings offered. Certainly not ideal but better to capture some input from them rather than none at all. I will inquire with staff about the cost.

  • Patty If you want the public to participate these meetings should be held during the evening.

    • Hi Dave. I’m not sure why daytime was chosen for the central and west locations. Here in my ward it is an evening meeting. Looking at the 3 times (morning, afternoon, and evening) I would say that staff was trying to offer a variety of times so that the most people could be accommodated. Any resident is welcome to attend any, or all, of the meetings regardless of location.
