  • A new design for Shelbourne Street that includes separated cycling facilities, transit enhancements, and a safe, more enjoyable pedestrian environment;
  • A network of greenways and bikeways that provide improved walking and cycling opportunities for people of all ages and abilities
  • Accommodation of future housing and job growth in Centres and Villages;
  • New housing opportunities along Shelbourne Street to support transit enhancements, improve housing choice and enable improvements to the public realm;
  • A healthier environment through Bowker Creek restoration, environmentally significant areas protection and urban forest enhancement;
  • Additional quality of life features to support existing and future populations, including parks, open space, and community facilities;
  • A better-designed community that improves the relationship between buildings and pedestrian areas and highlights streets as a space for community enjoyment and activity
