Purpose of the Amendment:
The purpose of this Amendment is to facilitate development of the Milton Education Village (MEV) lands as a complete, mixed-use and integrated community and ‘innovation district’ anchored by a post-secondary education campus. In particular, the amendment proposes to permit on a site-specific basis a range of uses on lands within the Greenbelt Plan Protected Countryside adjacent to the MEV. The proposed uses are related to and supportive of the MEV and the Wilfred Laurier University campus and include stormwater management infrastructure and uses related to the use of renewable resources.
The Milton Education Village represents an important and strategic initiative for the Town and Region. It is the focus of a number of longstanding and ongoing planning initiatives aimed at achieving an overall vision for a complete community and mixed-use area anchored by post-secondary education.
The Milton Education Village (MEV) is an area in the Town of Milton located west of Tremaine Road generally between Derry Road to the north and Britannia Road to the south. On its western side, the MEV is adjacent to the Protected Countryside area of the Provincial Greenbelt Plan. The MEV is planned around a vision for a complete community and mixed-use innovation district anchored by a post-secondary education campus. A context map showing the location of the MEV is shown below.
