On March 10, 2015, Planning Committee approved the report titled Building Better and Smarter Suburbs: Strategic Directions and Action Plan. The report speaks to the challenge of supporting land efficiency and functionality in new suburban subdivisions, while at the same time improving urban design and long-term cost effectiveness.
Building Better and Smarter Suburbs is now in its implementation phase. Three Working Groups – Streets, Schools, and Parks – are developing recommendations based on the Strategic Directions and Action Plan items in the report. Solutions will be implemented as they become available throughout this Term of Council (2015-2018).
