Notice of Study Commencement

The Study

The City of Welland has initiated the development of a Transportation Master Plan (TMP), City on the Move, to provide the City with long-term road network and active transportation strategies that will support both existing needs, and accommodate further projected population and employment growth.

The Master Plan will aim to:

  • Connect residential, commercial, and industrial areas effectively and efficiently.
  • Enhance active transportation and improve connectivity.
  • Promote safe, environmentally responsible, and accessible transportation.
  • Promote network links to areas of growth, neighbouring municipalities, and key transport corridors.
  • Create a capital plan to meet the transportation needs of the City now and in the future.

The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of Master Plan Approach #1 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. This approach involves the preparation of a Master Plan document at the conclusion of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA process.

Public Input

Public and technical agency consultation will be fundamental in developing the Master Plan. Two public open houses will be held during the study to share information and receive input from the public. Details, including the date, time, and how to participate in each public open house will be announced in a subsequent notice, and posted on the project webpage at (www.engagewelland.ca/transportation-master-plan-study).
