Project description

The Southeast Courtice Secondary Plan will create complete neighbourhoods that will include a diverse housing mix located within walking distance to shopping, services, schools and amenities. The preservation of the natural heritage system is a priority.

Excellence in urban design will be pursued to promote healthy and active lifestyles by integrating the mix of land uses with active transportation connections throughout.

These new neighbourhoods will be designed to include easily recognizable sustainable design elements such as vegetated swales to promote groundwater infiltration as well as less recognizable features including ‘green’ buildings.

Drop-in session - June 26, 2018

The Southeast Courtice Secondary Plan process was launched at a drop-in session at South Courtice Arena on June 26, 2018. The 60+ residents, business owners, agencies and developers that attended the session were quite interested in the design process that will create the framework for future development of this area.

This session reminded the attendees that this Secondary Plan process will create a Sustainable Community in southeast Courtice. The project launch also introduced the community to the Integraged Environmental Assessment process which will be undertaken simultaneously.

The materials that were on display at the June 26, 2018 session are located below:

Notice of Study Commencement

The proposed new major roads to service the Southeast Courtice Secondary Plan are subject to Schedule C of the Municipal Class EA. The EA will proceed through the “Integrated Approach” with the Planning Act as outlined in Section A.2.9 of the Municipal Class EA Guide (Municipal Engineers Association, October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The “Integrated Approach” recognizes the desirability of integrating and coordinating the planning and approval processes to satisfy the requirements of the Planning Act and Environmental Assessment Act.

This notice was first issued on June 13, 2018.

The Municipality has hired AECOM, a firm of architects, engineers, and planners, as well as subconsultants, Gladki Planning Associates, Ward Land Economics and DBH Soil Services to prepare the Southeast Courtice Secondary Plan.
